I went when it first opened. I was a groundling and it was so much fun. I'm short and I still found a good place to stand. The performance in the photo was the beginning of Henry V. Mark Rylance was in the starring role and his performance was superb. Unless you have physical impediments, I suggest being a groundling. If you want to sit and be away from the action, go to the National Theatre or the Swann Theatre. The only problem you'd have is if you bought your tickets in advance and it rains--because the play goes on! So buy it when you get there.
