Venue overview

The Harold Pinter Theatre, formerly the Comedy Theatre, was named to honour the late Harold Pinter and highlight the importance of the venue in premiering new work from a range of prolific playwrights, including Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams. Despite a major refurbishment in the 1950’s, the theatre retains the charm of a typical Victorian building.

The Kinks musical Sunny Afternoon has played at theatre since 2014, and features a catwalk that juts out into the Stalls. Closing in October 2016, the Harold Pinter Theatre has reverted back to hosting short-running plays, featuring stars such as Imelda Staunton and Mark Rylance. Continuing on from Sunny Afternoon, the rear of the Stalls remains split into 11 tables across rows R-U.

With a seating capacity of 796 split across four levels, the Harold Pinter Theatre is one of the West End’s more modest venues. A variety of views are available in the auditorium, with support pillars dotted throughout the seating. The best seats can be found in the Stalls, however the Dress Circle overhang may affect the view.

Good value seats

Due to the pillars in this theatre, many seats are often discounted due to being restricted view. Occasionally these seats can be worth the risk. However, it is worth sitting in the Balcony for a distant, but overall clear, view.

Premium seats

Due to the height of the stage, the best seats in the Stalls are in the centre rows, just before the Dress Circle begins to overhang. The second row of the Dress Circle is also an excellent choice for those looking for premium views.

Seat is comfortable with a good amount of legroom to stretch out. Although you're about half way back or so, you still get a clear view of the stage and don't feel too far away from everything. It's a great central seat, just next to a pillar but tha... More

Rather 'cosy' seats, especially if your neighbour is of ample dimensions, and not a great deal of legroom. There's a safety running at eye level (if you're 5ft tall!). It's easy enough to look over or under, but that adds to the slight discomfort of ... More

Decent legroom, especially being on the aisle. Comfortable seat too, and a very good view - apart from having to lean to one side or another, depending on what the people in front of me were doing. The safety rail that obstructs the view from this se... More
