Saw Half a Sixpence matinee yesterday. Older genre than "modern" musicals, but we loved it. The standing ovation was deserved for the individual, joint, cast performance. Fantastic singing, dancing and great tunes in a lovely theatre. Just what you need to lift your hearts.

This is a great fun show to watch. The actors really seem to enjoy themselves and this is very infectious. Great music and left the theatre feeling very light hearted and happy. Charlie Stemp and Devon-Elise Johnson are outstanding. Can really recommend.

This show is an absolute must. A beautiful love story, with the most loveable fool as the lead, brilliantly played by Charlie Stemp. The staging is a triumph, I won't spoil the best effect in the West End for you. The songs are so catchy,...More

The Box Seats on either side are the best for easy access and comfort. Everything else is standard theater row seating, in other words, very tight and uncomfortable. But the show was fantastic! As others have suggested call... More

How far does the Royal Circle go over the stalls at the Noel Coward Theatre in London--in terms of rows. I'm trying to compare row O in the stalls with row A in the Royal Circle--in terms of closest to the stage. MANY THANKS!
