Are concession seats at the front for any Menier production?

What is seating like for someone over 6 feet?
My reviews can also be found at "A Night at the Theatre"

I'm not tall but find the Menier incredibly uncomfortable.

I appreciate it's an American musical from an American source, but I can't help but feel that it should be spelt with a "u".

It's a famous American book, a famous American movie, a well known and relatively successful American musical. Why would they change the spelling now?  That's parochialism in the extreme.
Excuse me if I seem jejune
I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

Personaly I think we should state that the story is "too american" for the British public, relocate the story to Liverpool, and call it "The Colour Purple" - just to get our own back for "The Full Monty".  :rolleyes:
The engine roared, the motor hissed,
And who could see that the road would twist
