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.

The view was perhaps somewhat distant but it’s a small theatre and so it still felt closer than it looks in this picture. The only problem with watching from this height is that the heads of actors would be cut off when they stood at the rear of the office... More

The view was perfect, listed as restricted for some strange reason, some minor gags are missed due to being at the end but really not a problem, for the price I paid I would 100% sit in this seat again. More
