Has anyone seen Mary Poppins in London? Looking to purchase tickets? Is Front Mezzanine better or stick with Orchestra. I know she flies. Just want to get the best vew.

I had the seat R28 (Stalls/Orch) when I saw the show which is under the Mezz but you could see everything just fine. The final 10 secs or so of Mary's final exit were a bit blocked by the front edge of Mezz but other than that the view was brilliant. But I wouldn't take any seats farther back than row S. I'd say, if you have the option to take front Mezz or Stalls/Orch, go with the front Mezz.

I was in the middle of the Upper circle and I t was great for the flying bits, but it is a bit too high up. MY General Philosophy is that the Front of Dress Circle is almost always best. There are exceptions, like Billy or anything in big theatres like the Dominion.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

I sat in H3 (Stalls) and the view was FANTASTIC. However, as Sant was saying, if you're any further back than about S I would go with the Dress Circle.

By the way, if you're near H3, Mary Poppins will fly DIRECTLY over your head. ("Oh my God, I think she looked at me!") =) Enjoy the show!

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

And Starbucks will use the words 'large' and 'small', not pretentious crap like grande and tall.
