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.

Good seats, was looking up due to height of the stage when action was to the front but was not a major issue for this show. Comfortable seats, normal legroom for West End theatres but not bad for me at 5’5. More
