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.

Little legroom even for someone of my height. Great view of the stage though. Have to look through the gap of the people sitting in front but you're close enough to the stage for it not to matter too much. More

You can see most of the action however may struggle if someone infront leans. You miss some of the effects from up here! It is a very cramped theatre with little legroom. I have seen this show before from the stalls and would recommend paying a tiny bit... More

This is the front row middle, so great to see the actors up close. The seats are very small so a bit uncomfortable. I got a jump scare sat here so if you don't want that then sit further back and not on a isle. More
