Venue overview

The Garrick Theatre first opened in 1889 and was financed by W.S Gilbert. Named after prolific Shakespearean actor David Garrick, the theatre was the first in the West End to be named after an actor. Decorated in an Italian Renaissance style, the stage is marked by decorative pillars. The Garrick Theatre regularly houses successful one-off plays, most recently hosting the year-long residency of the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company, which included productions such as , Romeo and Juliet and The Entertainer. In the past, the theatre has hosted musicals such as Rock of Ages and Chicago.

Since renovations, you are able to hear the rattle of the underground during productions. Seating at the Garrick Theatre is notoriously tricky, with support pillars and circle overhangs restricting the view for many seats. The Stalls and Dress Circle offer the best views.

Good value seats

The best seats on a budget can be found in selected seats towards the rear of the Stalls, where seats are usually discounted because of the many support pillars and Dress Circle overhang. Otherwise, buy a Grand Circle ticket and hope for an upgrade!

Premium seats

Sit between Row D and J in the Stalls for an excellent, unrestricted view of the stage. Alternatively, the Dress Circle offers incredibly clear and detailed views, without feeling far away from the stage. These seats have brilliant views of the stage, which is reflected in the price of tickets.

These are the best seats ever. I’ve watched quite a few plays, in quite a few theatres in quite a few different positions and areas. This is the best. You are so close to the actors but far enough away to see everything, the stage is at a good height... More

The seat is advertised as 'RV' but that certainly isn't the case at all! The view was just about as perfect as you could get with no-one in front it's a great experience to be so close to the action! Would recommend this seat More

Very central so the whole stage is clearly visible. The rake is poor, so if you had tall people in front of you, the view would be significantly reduced. The seats are offset so the center stage would still be fine, unless you get one of those couples... More
