I finally saw this last night, and wow! It's amazing and beautiful and easily one of the best plays I've ever seen. Luke Treadaway definitely deserves to win the Olivier next week.

Also: To those seeing the play in the future, make sure to stay after the bows for an extra scene :)

I knew about the extra scene from the NT, and waited a while for it at the Apollo but it didn't happen so I'd presumed they weren't doing it. It wasn't until we were almost out of the theatre that we heard the music starting up for it - gutted I missed it as it's a great "extra".

Has anyone day-seated recently for this? Curious as to when people start queuing.

Early. Before it did an Olivier sweep, people were arriving on a Saturday at 6:30am. I imagine now it's even earlier.

Saw this last week and loved it. I missed out on it during the NT run so was really happy when they announced the transfer. Luke Treadaway's performance is nothing but amazing. I've already booked to see it again later this month (I rarely ever do return visits when it comes to plays so this shows just how much I enjoyed it).

Saw this yesterday and was completely blown away!
Fully deserving of it's Olivier haul, especially Luke Treadaway whose performance was complete and flawless.
I was surprised by just how closely the play sticks to the book - you're really drawn into Christopher's mind and thought processes.

We sat in the £12 balcony seats and I think they were okay value for money. The main 'restriction' of the view actually came from the heads of the people sat in front as, being so high up, you inevitably get a domino effect of people leaning forward. I'd never been to the Apollo before and I have to say, now I've experienced it, it's not my favourite of theatres! The seats creak terribly! plus the staff are a bit useless...

Anyway, I'd love to see the play again from a closer perspective!

I sat in one of the £40 seats in the DC. You miss tiny bits since you are sitting at the side of the DC but all in all I found my seat good value for money (I was in C25). You are quite close to the stage as well which I enjoyed a lot.
I've booked row A on the other side for late May, again for £40. For anyone who doesn't want to pay top price but doesn't fancy sitting in the upper circle or balcony either I'd definitely recommend the slightly cheaper than top price DC seats.
