Booking & Theatre Info For Vardy Vs Rooney: The Wagatha Christie Trial
The Ambassadors Theatre is a small West End venue with a capacity of 410 seats on two levels. Premium seats in the theatre are located in the front two rows of the Circle, and the centre of the Stalls with great views between seats 6-12 in rows D-G.
Due to the intimacy of the venue, bargain hunters can get great value from the back row of the Circle which offers a great view of the stage. The overhang from the Circle does encroach on the rear seats in the Stalls, meaning the back rows do have a slightly restricted view which should reflect in the price of the ticket.
Patrons on a budget can find good value for Vardy Vs Rooney tickets in the last four rows of the Circle from H to L which are often discounted but still offer a great view of the stage and have good legroom.
