Venue overview

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.

Good value seats

The front row of the Grand Circle is often reduced, and although it is quite high you can see the action very well. The best seats are one row behind in seats B15-18, as they do not have restrictions from the lighting equipment. Otherwise, sit towards the rear of the Stalls for a great view of the entire stage on a budget.

Premium seats

The Stalls provides excellent views of the stage throughout, even towards the rear of the seating. Sit in the front section of either the Stalls or the Dress Circle for an immersive experience.

The view could’ve been a lot better as I couldn’t see through the school desks on stage to see Jamie or Miss Hedge as they entered the classroom. Aside from that it was generally fine. I usually like a little more legroom but this wasn’t terrible either. More

Wow - the view from this seat was brilliant, with the exception of a few scenes performed at the back of the stage, but this didn’t impede my enjoyment of the show. Legroom wasn’t terrible, and definitely bearable. It was slightly difficult to hear some... More
