Dayseats back - what a great news.

Will these be the first two rows which are not sold online? Or limited to a certain number?

Perhaps anybody can provide some information after Dayseating...

If it's the front 2 rows I'd avoid them, I was put in the second row & went to BO to ask to be moved as I couldnt see at all.  This wasnt a cheap seat either so I got moved to row G end of aisle, another seat I wouldnt recommend as you miss the pizza delivery part (I was in seat number 3 of that row)

Went to get day seats today. Arrived at 10.40 and told all sold out but then offered row AA. Has heard that they were pretty bad seats so declined them and next cheapest I was offered were the 39.50 seats in row S! Went across to the TKTS booth and got row H centre for 42.50!

Having seen the height of the stage I would thoroughly recommend avoiding the first 3-4 rows as you really won't see much.

This is my first time seeing it since it has moved and got to say that I much preferred it at the Shaftesbury. The little changes that the poster above mentioned aren't much but definately lessen the show a bit which is a shame.

Nathan was on as Lonny tonight and although he has a fab voice, I do prefer Simon Lipkin. Ross Hunter also left mid way through the show - noticeably suffering from a bad throat :( One positive is that Tim Driesen has massively improved since I saw his first show as Drew last year!! His vocals are great.

Most annoying thing so far - the rude woman who started talking loudly and then decided she had to leave 3 minutes before the interval!!

Overall - enjoying the show , Act 2 to come.

Im going on tuesday, got a lastminute.com ticket so no idea where I'll be sat.

Where were you sat?

Just interested, as I also have a lastminute.com booking open for May (that one with £20 for Stalls (third category???)) and do not yet know where my seat will be - I booked before the re-introduction of day seats.

I'm not going until next tuesday. Have the same deal 3rd price £20, i'm hoping its one of the pillar seats near the front as I had one of those for loserville and it was great. Theatremonkey has seats by price category map as well as by opinion which helps.

Aww poor Ross having to go off mid show - did they have to stop the show while Tim got ready as Drew or was he already ready just in case? I always think that would be quite good seeing two different people in the same role in the same show, although never nice for the one who has to go off, and possibly a bit weird for the one who has to suddenly start mid show.

I'm glad you think Tim is great, I hope to see him as Drew soon.

Might have been at the interval when he went off so they didn't have to stop the show?
