Restricted View Information: There are some Restricted View (RV) seats in the Stalls (ground floor) and in the Circle (first floor) of the Olympia Theatre. In the first three rows of the Stalls, the height of the stage means that (for the front row especially) you won’t see the action towards the rear of the stage, although you do get to see the action close up. In the rear of the Stalls the RV seats mean that a pillar or something is in your line of sight. In the rear of the Circle, the RV seats mean that a pillar or something is in your line of sight. This may not be a problem, but we just wanted to make sure you knew.
