I was somewhat envious of the folk in the royal boxes even though very happy with my seats. I guessed they were really ultra lucky or perhaps connected with the anniversary promotion.
We were there in row K of the stalls. Thank you so much op. Likewise saw no empty seats. However a real pity from previous posts here that saw empty seats around them so some people grabbed seats and didn't use them. We were not asked for ID at all nor anyone else entering. What a selfish waste when there were people on here who would have really appreciated it. I don't know the ins and outs but from what I overheard in conversations around in the theatre I think some people had in fact paid although at a mega bargain rate. It looks like some tickets were sold on therefore....
R10 and R11 here.
We had 4 empty seats on Row A of the Royal Circle. Loved the show though. Loved small Simba, especially doing his dance moves at the end of the show when they were doing their bows XD
Predictably they didn't check ID on our tickets, but I think I saw some others getting IDed. There was the odd empty seat up in the grand circle but we very much enjoyed our night out, the money saved from seeing a show we wanted to see anyway for free was spent on a nice meal and a good hotel! Props to the stage right percussionist in the box who certainly was putting some welly into it!
