Two Strangers (Carry a Cake Across New York) Tickets - Criterion Theatre

Two Strangers (Carry a Cake Across New York) is a new British musical by writers Kit Buchan and Jim Barne that now transfers into the West End at the Criterion Theatre following a successful season at the Kiln Theatre.

Dougal is an impossibly upbeat but naive Brit, flying to New York for his father’s second wedding. The father that he’s never known.

Robin, the sister of the bride, is waiting for him at the airport. She’s a blunt, straight-talking native New Yorker, late for work, and she doesn’t have any time to stop and go sightseeing.

Instant attraction? Not.

But with the entire city at their feet, and an extravagant wedding approaching…pretty much anything could happen.

Criterion Theatre Seating Plan

The Criterion Theatre is an intimate West End theatre situated in Piccadilly Circus very heart of theatreland and has a capacity of 581 seats.

The auditorium generally offers good views throughout, however, some support pillars are dotted throughout the different sections, which can cause minor restrictions to the overall view of the stage in both the Stalls and Dress Circle.

Any restrictions are reflected in the ticket price and those seats affected are sold as restricted view however, it is highly recommended to study the seating plan in detail before purchase.

Premium seats in the theatre are located in both the front row of the Dress Circle in seats 12-21, and also in the centre of the Stalls section where the views of the stage are excellent.

Bargain hunters looking to book cheap tickets to Two Strangers (Carry A Cake Across New York) tickets can take advantage of the number of pillars situated in the venue, as the price of some seats can be heavily reduced, and provide value depending on the severity of the restriction. The front row of the Upper Circle also offers excellent value for money in the seats towards the ends of the rows which provide a good view of the stage and are regularly discounted.

Where Is The Best Place In The Theatre To Book The Cheapest Tickets At The Criterion?

There are three tiers in the Criterion Theatre – the stalls on the ground floor, the dress circle one floor up, and then the upper circle on the second floor. The theatre has many seats that feature quite severe restrictions due to support pillars that are located on the first two levels. The seats in the upper circle however while not offering a lot of legroom for taller patrons, do mostly have a relatively decent view of the stage with no interference from either pillars or an overhang as there is no balcony section. Booking tickets at the Criterion Theatre in this section does offer some value, especially for weekend performances when tickets in the other sections will be sold at a premium and expensive.

Should I Avoid Booking Tickets At The Criterion Theatre That Have A Restricted View?

The clear-view seats in the front and centre of both the stalls and dress circle both offer good views of the stage (despite the seating in the stalls not being raked steeply) however, there are issues towards the back of the stalls from the overhang from the dress circle that can affect the view from row M onwards. Some pillars obstruct the view to the back of the stalls that are a problem. In the dress circle there are some specifically designated ‘restricted view’ seats because of the pillars that support the upper circle in Row C. All seats that do feature restrictions however should be priced accordingly, and it will depend on the production as to how severe the restrictions are so it is highly recommended that patrons study the seating plan thoroughly before booking tickets at the Criterion that are marked as ‘restricted view’, and always remember that ‘cheap’ is not always a ‘bargain!’
