I have just booked my tickets to see "Merrily We Roll Along" again upon its West End transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre utilising the Menier's fantastic 35 offer. I just have one question regarding the seats I have booked. I am sat in Row A of the Dress Circle on the left hand side block (right hand side when looking at the seating plan). These are marked as red on the Theatre Monkey website, but I cannot see any opinions from others explaining why they are marked like this. Does anyone have any idea what these seats are like?

Also, when I go to see "Merrily" I am planning on going for a weekend and wanted to see if I could get tickets for "A Chorus Line". Does anyone know what the demand for day seats is like for this show? If I cannot get to the theatre for 10am on the day, do you reckon that I would be able to still get day seats later on, or will there be any suitable deals at the TKTS booth?

Thanks in advance. Sorry for being such a pain!

I turned up at the Palladium last Saturday at 12 noon and was able to get a 49 ticket for that evening's show for just 19.50 - but don't know if that's general the case or if I was just very lucky!

The front row Circle at the Harold Pinter does, I believe, have a railing which might be considered obstructive if you're verticaly challenged. Maybe that's it.
Faced with these Loreleis, what man can moralize!

Thank you both for your help.

I thought that would be it mallardo. There seems to be no other explanation. I'm tall so a rail won't really affect me. Anyway, I can't really complain as the tickets were a steal at that price!
