About the Apollo Theatre
The Apollo Theatre opened in 1901, with an aim to present light musical comedies. Now, the venue sees a high turnover of both plays and musicals throughout the year.
Constructed in a French Renaissance style, the theatre is opulently decorated, with a distinct lack of support pillars. In 2013, the Balcony collapsed during a performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and has since been removed.
A relatively intimate theatre of 658 seats, the auditorium is divided between three floors. There are excellent views throughout the theatre, with very limited overhang from higher tiers and steep rakes throughout.
