Stalls - Rows B-D, and Seats 9-37 in Rows E to J.
Circle - Seats 16-31 in Rows A to F.
Prince of Wales Theatre Stalls
The stalls fan out away from the stage, getting wider towards the back of the auditorium. There are two half aisles dividing the seating into three sections at the rear. The section is well-raked, giving clear views of the stage over the heads of the audience in front. The stage is quite high, so people in the first row may have to look up, but these are currently sold as lottery seats.
There are some restricted views from the first and final seats in rows N-T. Whilst the stage is still visible, these seats do feel quite far to the side and look at the stage from an angle. The final rows have the overhang of the level above in view, but this only obstructs the very top of the stage.

Prince of Wales Theatre Circle
The dress circle is similar in layout to the stalls, with three blocks of seating. The whole section is steeply raked, giving clear views over the top of the audience in front, though it may not be suitable for Vertigo sufferers. There is a safety rail at the ends of each stairwell, which limits the views from aisle seats in the first three rows.
Seats towards the centre give the best views of the stage, but those towards the sides of the auditorium also look directly at the action. The back of the dress circle feels high but due to the size of the auditorium, does not feel too far away. The entire stage is always in view from these seats.

Which Seats Offer The Best View?
A good theatre experience is good as long as you’re sitting at the right place. Here are the best seating options for The Book of Mormon London.
In the stalls section, Row E seats 27-32, row F 15-31, row G 15-32 and row H 15-33 are marked as ‘Premium’ seats. From these seats you will have a perfect view of the stage. On the other hand, Row A seats 18-29, row B 18-29, row C 19-32 and row D 18-33 are considered to be the best in the dress circle section.

Which Seats Offer the Best Value for Money?
If you’re looking for a great time on West End but have budgetary restrictions, we have the best value for money seats for The Book of Mormon listed below for you. In the stalls section, the entirety of rows B-D are very reasonably priced and will offer excellent views of the stage. For the dress circle section, the central seats of rows E-J are value for money.
If you’re looking for something a little cheaper and don’t mind not getting the best view, the entirety of row A in the stalls is cheaper than the options listed above. Please note that if seated here, you’ll will often have to look up at the stage to watch the show.
30-Second Takeaway: Prince of Wales Theatre
- Prince of Wales Theater is an average sized theatre with 1160 seats in total spread across two sections, stalls and circle.
- The stalls make for the biggest section in the theatre with 19 rows in total starting from row A and ending with U.
- The second and only elevated section in the theatre is the circle section. This section has 11 rows in the range of A to L.
- The circle begins to overhang at around row P, although this is not a major obstruction. Since the stage is wide and the seating is only on two levels, it’s hard to find either a seat with a bad view or a seat that feels far away from the stage.
- If you’re looking for a private theatre viewing experience, there are box seats in the Prince of Wales Theater as well. The 16 box seats are on either side of the circle section.
- Rows J - K in the stalls have slightly restricted views from the seats on the ends of the rows. In the circle, the loges have side views of the stage, and some of the seats in row A and along the aisles have the safety rail in view.
- None of the seats in the Prince of Wales Theater feel particularly far away from the stage, and the whole venue is well-raked so it's easy to see over the audience ahead.
