    Wonderfully funny with adult theme and language from the start.The cast were all great and, not knowing the plot before I went, I found the whole show really engaging and easy to follow. David Tennant was Don Juan and he was fantastic. His performance was varied, clear and surprising (without giving any good bits away!!!). He had great chemistry with Adrian Scarborough who was Stan and he rocked the part! He was amazingly versatile and very funny. Their acting was top class and I would love to go again! The show has a mix of dance, a few songs and great stage presence from them all. A deserved ovation was given. Highly recommend if you like an unusual and funny storyline! The theatre was very pretty inside, with elegant boxes and blue decor and the theatre staff were very helpful and polite.
    View From this seat was fine. Had to lean slightly forward to see very front of stage but this show had main action within easy view. Legroom was adequate for me and my friend who is tall and has long legs but leg room area is not deep. Seat comfortable enough in size and shape. There is narrow passage along the front of the seating so you must stand to allow patrons access to their seats rather than turning your legs to the side and this may be a concern for someone uncomfortable at height.

    Don Juan in Soho was not what I expected at all! A very funny production with excellent casting of both David Tennant and Adrian Scarborough who were bouncing off each other all night. Be warned – this play is not suitable for children so any young Dr Who fans should stay away (the recommended age limit is 16+). Some scenes were a little OTT and silly in places but overall, it was a fun evening’s entertainment. They could have probably done without an interval and shown the play in its entirety so it would run at around 1 hour 40 mins in total (but I guess they need to make money at the bar and on ice creams!).
    This seat is situated in the front row of the balcony and is very central. There is a rail in front of you but it doesn’t impede your view and you can easily see over it. I find this seat is better than those of a similar price bracket in the Grand Circle as the view is much better. The only issue is that there is not much leg room so it’s not ideal for tall people. Would definitely recommend this seat for its price however.

    Really loved it! The writing is so so good and the actors all worked great together. David Tennant is quite a force of nature and Adrian Scarborough is a class A actor! It's funny, irreverent, firmly planted in a Soho setting, with all its ups and downs, and I cannot wait to see it again!
    This side seat is quite great for me, granted, I'm short so I can fold up on this oddly shaped seat and enjoy the show! But really, it's great and cheap!

    Hysterical. David Tennant is on point. Choreography could use some sophistication... But considering the dancing is minimal, it's not terribly noticeable how simplistic it is.

    Extremely high up. The rows are benched with arm rests. The back of the chair is straight, doesn't really allow for relaxation. Also, there are standing seats behind, so if you're taller, you literally have someone breathing down your neck.

DON JUAN IN SOHO SEATING PLAN
The Wyndham’s Theatre Stalls generally give good views throughout, but the rear rows are slightly restricted by the overhang of the Circle above. The Royal Circle similarly can give provide some of the best seats in Wyndham’s Theatre, especially in the centre of Rows C to E, with the rear also having a slight overhang.

The Grand Circle can feel quite distant from the stage and have smaller amounts of legroom, however the seats can still be very good value for money if you are able to get discounted tickets. The Balcony is generally the cheapest section of the theatre, however with a safety rail and being very high up, these are generally not recommended unless you can get them for a very good price.

STORY
David Tennant returns to the West End stage to play the lead role in Patrick Marber’s Don Juan in Soho, a retelling of the Molière classic. The play is set to open at Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End in spring 2017, with previews beginning on 17th March.

Don Juan in Soho is written and directed Patrick Marber, a British dramatist who has become a firm favourite of both stage and screen. Marber started his career in writing and performing TV and radio comedy before moving to writing plays and screenplays.

Marber’s first play, Dealer’s Choice premiered at the National Theatre in 1995 where it was received warmly be critics and won both the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy and the Writers' Guild Award for Best West End Play.

It was with the premiere of Marber’s second original play Closer in 1997 at the National Theatre that he firmly cemented his name in the history of London theatre. The play won both the 1997 Evening Standard Best Comedy Award and the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play, as well as the 1999 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best Foreign play following its Broadway transfer. In 2004, Marber also adapted his play for a hugely successful film of the same name, starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, and Clive Owen.

Don Juan in Soho was first premiered in 2006 in a version starring Rhy Ifans and directed by Michael Grandage, becoming much loved by fans and critics alike for its brilliant hilarity.

The play follows the lordly DJ, the priapic lothario who spends his days charming his way through modern Soho, while his sidekick Stan keeps track of all his sexual conquests, despite the entreaties of his wife and doddery father.

Don Juan in Soho marks the first return of David Tennant to the London stage since his triumphant performance in the lead role in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II. David Tennant is one of the most celebrated actors of the century, having hugely popular roles in TV, film and theatre. After a huge range of work with the Dundee Repertory Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company throughout the 1990s, Tennant became a worldwide household name starring as the Doctor in the BBC’s revamped version of Doctor Who.

Tennant has received countless awards throughout his career, including an Olivier Award for Best Actor for Lobby Hero, and Evening Standard Theatre Award for his role in Hamlet. Most recently he has seen great success on stage in Richard II, Much Ado About Nothing and Love’s Labour’s Lost. This will be the first time Tennant has appeared in a non-Shakespeare play since his role as Jimmy Porter in Look Back in Anger over ten years ago.

He is joined by Gawn Grainger (The Entertainer & Gavin & Stacey) as Louis and Adrian Scarborough (King Lear) as Stan.

Having been created by one of the country’s leading dramatists, and having one of the biggest names of the stage in the lead role, Don Juan in Soho is set to be one of the most exciting plays of spring 2017. Don Juan in Soho will open at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London on 17th March 2017.
SUITABLE FOR
Anyone who is a fan of David Tennant should make sure to take the opportunity to see the great actor back on the London stage. With this marking his first non-Shakespearean performance in the West End since 2006, it is a fantastic chance to see Tennant’s broad range in Marber’s acclaimed comedy.
