Venue overview

The Duchess Theatre is located near the Aldwych, close to the Novello and Lyceum. Originally opening in the early 1930’s, the theatre is very intimate and often hosts smaller plays and musicals. Comedy The Play That Goes Wrong has been playing at the Duchess Theatre since 2014.

Build on two levels, the Dress Circle is much narrower than the Stalls, and both sections offer a variety of views for a variety of prices. The central Stalls offer the best views, with side-angles from seats on the ends of the rows.

Good value seats

The cheapest seats are located in the final two rows of the Circle, which are far back from the stage, but for the size of the theatre are not particularly restricted. Alternatively, seats at the ends of the rows in the Stalls are often discounted, as they can be partially restricted, but are usually good value.

Premium seats

Due to the size of the theatre, most shows do not have premium priced seats. The best seats are in the front and centre of the Stalls, where the rake begins and the Dress Circle overhang is not yet in place. Alternatively, sit at the very front of the Dress Circle, in the centre of the row.

Seats were good. But it was a lot higher than I expected. Got a slight sense of vertigo up there. But we could see everything really well and the seats themselves were really comfy. Just too high up for me. More

Generally a really great seat. You do miss some action low down on the stage, but this is extremely minimal. Otherwise the view is excellent. It’s fairly comfortable with decent legroom. I would recommend this seat to others and sit here again myself... More

The view here is generally good, though as you are at the back of the stalls you are quite far away from the stage. You also miss some moments that happen on the far right due to being on the end of the row. The positive of being on the end of the row... More
