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.

This theatre is rather small, so I think you could sit anywhere and you won't feel far from the action! There's a good amount of legroom and I felt very comfortable, the back of the seat is at quite an angle so that took a moment to get used to but i... More

An amazing view of the stage! The theatre is small so sitting further back in the stalls still gives you an amazing view of the stage and this seat is right in the middle so nothing at all is restricted. The legroom is decent and the seat was overall... More
