Venue overview

The Gielgud Theatre, formerly the Globe Theatre, is named after prolific actor John Gielgud. Opening in 1906 and located on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue, the theatre retains much of its original design.

Typically used for short runs of plays and musicals, the venue is host to the long-running The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

Good value seats

Due to the shape of the Dress Circle, a number of seats are restricted view, particularly towards the ends of rows A and B. These seats face the stage at an angle, but provide an intimate view of the action. Alternatively, sit in the Grand Circle for a bargain!

Premium seats

The best seats are located towards the mid-rear of the Stalls, just underneath the Dress Circle overhang. Seats towards the front of the theatre may miss some of the action on stage, due to the height of the stage. Sit in rows N-P for the best overall views.

Nice and close, seats offset a little between rows. Could be a problem if very tall person in front. Lighting could get into your eyes depending on production as looking up to the stage. Current production lights were dazzling at times. More

High up, but didn’t feel too distant from the action. Offers an incredible view of this concert version of Les Mis. Near the end of the row and I was lucky to have no one on the end seat so gained extra room otherwise probably would be rather tight and... More

Last row of Grand Circle, although high up could see all of the stage apart from far right corner but no problem for this show, but you do feel far away from the action. Legroom was ok for me, seat was also fairly comfortable. Good steep rake so no worries... More
