Venue overview

The Fortune Theatre was the first theatre to be built in London after World War I, and is situated close to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. This intimate theatre has been host to spooky thriller The Woman in Black since 1989, which is the West End’s second longest running play after The Mousetrap. The Fortune is said to be haunted, with actors commenting on ghostly spirits.

With a seating capacity of 432, the theatre is one of the smallest in the West End. Split across three sections and with a particularly high stage, views are mixed throughout the auditorium. There is no rake in the Stalls section, which can feel quite cramped.

Good value seats

Excellent prices can be found throughout the Fortune Theatre, with cheaper seats available in the Upper Circle and rear of the Stalls. Restricted view seats are sometimes worth a risk, but crucial action could be missed. Row L is an excellent bet for those on a strict budget.

Premium seats

Premium seats are around the centre in Row D, from seats 11-14. These do not suffer from the rake and provide clear views of the whole stage and action.

Because of the way the stage is built out, this section of row B is actually the front row. I normally like to sit close to the action if funds allow, but I feel that for a thriller like The Woman in Black, it would be better to sit a few rows furthe... More
