Booking & Theatre Information For Cake: The Marie Antoinette Playlist
The Lyric Theatre is a medium size West End theatre located at the bottom of Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of London’s theatreland and has four levels with a capacity of 1061 seats.
Due to support pillars situated throughout the venue, there are restricted views in certain areas of the auditorium which can result in major viewing obstructions. The rows all curve into a horseshoe shape, which causes the seats at the very end of the rows to suffer from side-angle views of the stage.
Premium seats in the theatre are located in rows F-J in the centre of the Stalls which have the best view overall view of the stage along with seats in the front and centre of the Dress Circle which will suit patrons who prefer to view the stage from an elevated position. Due to the number of pillars and also the shape of the auditorium in the Lyric Theatre, several restricted view seats are regularly sold at a lower cost to suit patrons on a budget or bargain hunters searching for cheap Cake: The Marie Antoinette Playlist tickets. Studying the seating plan to exploit the cut-off points within the pricing structure can also bring dividends as the seats all around the premium seats in the Stalls can offer similar views in lower price bands.
Private boxes are also available in the Lyric Theatre which is primarily located down the sides of the Dress Circle which has between two and three seats and contains freestanding chairs allowing patrons to maximize both their view and comfort and are usually priced comparably to seats in the Grand Circle.
