Lyceum Theatre Stalls
The Stalls section has a total of 926 seats, including accessible seating.
Rows A-C are right in the front of the stage, making them premium seats. However, given that the play is set in the Savannah, the entire stage is made use of. This means that if you're in the first three rows, you may be a little too close to the stage to see the entire play.
To this end, it is best to take seats in rows D-P for the best views of the stage. However, the corner most seats are not good, and give obstructed views of the play. Thus, the end seats of rows A-M are referred to as "restricted seats" and are offered at cheaper rates.
Lyceum Theatre Royal Circle
The Royal Circle is the first elevated section of the Lyceum Theatre, with 575 seats. It starts right over Row R of the Stalls. The layout is similar to the Stalls.
However, given that the Royal Circle is not directly in front of the stage, the first few rows will provide excellent views. While seats 4-24 in rows A-K offer the best views, the views from row AA (six seats in total), and end seats of rows A-G are decent.
Lyceum Theater Grand Circle
With 582 seats spread over just thirteen rows, the Grand Circle is the smallest section of the Lyceum Theatre. Given that the seats are far away from the stage, the views are average at best. The section begins from row C of the Royal Circle, with the middle seats from row A-F offering the best views out of all.
Which Seats Offer The Best View?
The Stalls obviously have some of the best seats in the house, given their proximity to the stage. The middle seats from rows D-P offer incredible views of the play, and the seats in rows A-C aren't half bad, either.
However, given that the Royal Circle offers an elevated view of the stage, it can also be said that the section offers some seriously stunning views of the play. And as it is the first elevated section, the middle seats of rows A-K offer some of the best views in the house.
Which Seats Offer the Best Value for Money?
While some of the best seats in the house are in the Stalls section, they are also heavy on the pocket. For those that want to see ths incredible play without burning a hole in their pockets, look to the Grand Circle. Rows A-F in the Grand Circle provide a decent view of the stage, and are not expensive. However, if you are willing to shell out a little more, the AA row and the middle seats of rows M-P also offer good views.
