Front row of the balcony is usually sold cheap at this theatre and is good value *IF* you can cope with restricted legroom, and a large number of stairs to reach the level! The view is great, the sound is good, and you have no-one in front of you.
The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that the road would twist

I saw The Producers up in the balcony and didn't have a problem BUT if you are going up in the gods try and get a centre seat.
Which way did he go McGill?

I sat in the middle of a row in the UC for Hay Fever (Judi Dench),
& the view was good (obviously not close-up like being near the front of the stalls, but fine for that play).

The legroom was OK (I have iffy knees, so legroom's often a problem);
& although I'm not good with heights (vertigo), I was just about OK there -
though maybe I survived the legroom & especially the height only 'cos I had a pal with me -
I think I'd have felt insecure in mid-row on my own.

When was Hayfever in the Theatre Royal Drury Lane????

Row K in the stalls provides best leg room as there is an aisle in front of it. The dress circle are all fairly good seats but you lose some of the top of the stage the further back you go. Dont sit in the boxes at the back of the dress circle, terrible seats. Saw Anything Goes from the balcony and it was OK. It is very high though and you feel a bit detached from the performance.
Legroom as a rule the higher up you go the worse it gets

Wrong theatre!!!  You're thinking of Theatre Royal, Haymarket.

I won't be called a baggage!
