    One of the things that makes the Young Vic special is that we completely transform our spaces to suit the unique design of each production. When we put a show on sale, you can buy tickets across different price zones, then when the seating design is confirmed closer to the time, we allocate your seats. We will be in touch with you to confirm your seat number(s) as soon as we are able. Our total auditorium capacity will be in line with UK Government social distancing guidance at the time of performance.
