I was in Level 2 (row T) and it was fine- a tiny bit of leaning involved at points, but you get a good overview of the space, whcih you wouldn't from lower down, and therefore you really see the piece as a whole, with the projections and lights which are on the floor.

I was in the second row of the pit level and you can actually see the floor projections/lights just fine from there - the seats are quite a way off ground level. Not sure what the front row would be like - I think it's second price, so I guess you might miss a bit from there.

We went as a family to see this last night - our boys are 14 and 13 and my daughter 11.  All loved it.  Had read the book with my daughter in the last couple of weeks so I can confirm that it was a very faithful adaptation.  Use of technology was fantastic - especially in the bonus bit at the end.

We were in row V  level 2 - the only tickets that were available when I booked on the first day of public booking.  Were marked as semi restricted view but all that meant was that we had to lean over the balcony to see everything.  Not sure if the people who were up a level behind us could see everything though as they were quite a way back.

Would certainly think this was worth going to see at a NT live screening if you can't get tickets for the Cottesloe.

Saw this on Friday with family. Hubby and I were on the first level at side, front row, girls were on front row of the pit. The could see all the stuff on the floor no problem and really enjoyed it.
Play was great....superb movement and great acting. Want to see the staging again as I'm not quite sure how they did a couple of bits! I love the National, they really do go the extra mile when it comes to production values.
Brilliant! Daughter had got A level maths results that day so particularly apt!

NT website is advising that Saturday evening and Monday evening's performances are cancelled, although the Sat mat is going ahead. Curious... something to do with the NT Live performance maybe?

Would be surprised if it was - it's not as though NT Live have never done a show in the Cottesloe and need extra time for that purpose or anything.

Luke Treadaway injured. Box office are having to ring round basically just giving refunds as show is sold out...not a nice job.
By the way some dates for Scenes from an Execution have been pulled....they are also contacting people to let them know and offer alternative dates in new season booking period....see here for details of dates
