Yes the sound was marvellous and it is so great to have such a large and lush sounding orchestra. Just wish the music (by far the weakest part of the show) were better. There is nothing poor about the music at all. All the songs are ok, but with nothing that even becomes remotely impressive and no "wow" moment musically.

I am hoping to go and see Charlie at some point soon.
There are quite a few of us (about four adults and one teenager) going and I am just wondering about seating. Few questions if you may...
Is this the kind of show were good seats really are everything? i.e. you get what you pay for?
Stalls the best seats to have for this show?
If so, anybody with experiences of examples? Where are the best views, places to sit .etc. ?
Hopefully you guys may be able to help me. I really would appreciate any assistance or responses.

From around row T in the stalls and H in the royal circle, the circle overhang may well cut bits of the show. In the front stalls, you look upwards, too. If you want “premium” seats the front centre block of the royal circle is unbeatable, and the seats next to and just behind them at normal top price are fantastic. I was in row D, just beside the centre block, amazing.
In the grand circle, there’s a big black unit attached to the front of the circle. Not really in the way, but sitting about row C back helps anyone small to ignore it, I think. There’s some restricted view stuff at the front just off the aisle that’s also worth having too, as are the cheaper seats in the back rows, as you see everything from there.
The balcony is fine as well, you’ll see plenty. Only problem in the grand circle and balcony is legroom, so aisle seat for anyone over 5ft 7 up there.

I also saw it this week, saw it Wednesday night, I thought it was a lot better than what I expected, the songs were not as bad as I expected, one or two I really liked, set was great as was the cast, overall a lot better than what I expected !!
