The Adelphi Theatre has three levels - the stalls on the ground floor, the dress circle one level up and then the upper circle on the second floor. The seats with the best view of the stage are located towards the centre of the stalls for those who prefer to look straight at the stage head on, or in the dress circle for those who have a preference to look down from an elevated position. There is only a slight raking of the seats in all sections of the theatre which can occasionally pose problems for shorter patrons however luckily there are not many seats that feature actual restrictions to the view with the exception of some seats on the sides of row N and beyond of the dress circle where there are minor issues due to the overhang from the upper circle so please be aware of this before booking tickets in this section.
The Adelphi Theatre is a very large venue to fill for eight shows every week and it is likely that for midweek performances at least after a period of time there will occasionally be a selection of discount tickets available either online or from the official shops located in and around Leicester Square. There are also good value and cheap tickets to Back To The Future to be found in the upper circle of the venue if you look. If booking for weekends though this may not be the case so flexibility with dates is very much a key factor when searching for bargains.
Seats in the Upper Circle in the Adelphi Theatre are set fairly high up, however they are not as far away from the stage as in other West End venues and there is definitely some value to be had for tickets in this section in the centre seats for weekend performances when ticket prices in the two lower sections will be priced at a premium.
As the Adelphi Theatre is a large venue, we anticipate that after a while there may be be some discount Back To The Future tickets available for off peak and midweek performances. Also, as there are several different price bands in the theatre, it can sometimes pay dividends to look to book tickets through third party ticket agents either online or through the official shops around Leicester Square. For peak time performances however it may be cheaper to book directly from the box office to avoid booking fees that could possibly be included from agents who will need to add the extra cost on to the consumer if they are not receiving discounts themselves from the theatre. When booking any theatre tickets in London through third party agencies it is always wise to ensure that they are either affiliated with or members of the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) to ensure full transparency over your purchase.
