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.

As this is the front row you have massive amounts of legroom. You have to tilt your head up a bit but not enough to cause a problem. No spoilers but due to the nature of the show, part of the action goes on slightly behind you to the right so you hav... More

Really comfortable seat with a good amount of legroom. The seats are quite low so you may feel a dip as you sit down in them. The seat is towards the back of the stalls but you can see a pretty clear view of the stage. The only hindrance is that the ... More
