Sadly, it's true that much of the Circle in the Apollo should be sold as Restricted View - the sightlines are so bad.  But didn't someone say that there will be day seats?  If so, they would be front row stalls (presumably) and, barring a super-high stage, would be your best bet.  Of course those can't be booked.
Thanks for the info!
Unfortunately I can't really day-seat because I live in Leicester so it would involve getting a train at stupid O'Clock in the morning, with my teenage sister in tow, without the guarantee of actually getting to see the show.
I might just have to risk dodgy sight lines

Check out the Theatre Monkey site then for what seats might be acceptable.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Thanks for the advice! I'll check it out :)

Update:
I went on Theatre Monkey and in the end, motivated mainly by financial circumstances, I opted for aisle seats on row C of the balcony. I know the view won't be great but TM had them labelled white so...
£12 is such a good price I don't really mind vertigo inducing seats!

I apologise if this is old news to you but Nick Hytner told Graham Norton yesterday that the NT hopes to tour The Strange Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time in the UK.

That's welcome new news to me and makes perfect sense from a lot of angles.

However, I presume that's a reincarnation of this show, I've never heard of "The Strange Incident.." before ;-)

There was an interesting interview in The Observer today where they talk about Christopher using the walls at the Apollo in the same way he used the floors at the National. So he'd do his drawings on the walls, but also has the ability to climb and walk up and down them like a spider. Sounds like a good concept to me.

I almost hate it that they are doing different things with it because now I feel I have to see it again.

Has anyone seen the new production yet? If so, what are the chages like? They sound really cool, but I'd love to hear what people think after actually seeing them implemented.

Also, any info on the day seats? (good/bad view, long/short queue in the morming, etc). Thanks :)

Am going tonight. Saw it twice in the Cottesloe so will let you know what I think of how it sits in the Apollo.
