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.

Great view of the stage and up close to the actors - can see every nuance of expression. No issue with heads in the way. The stage is high so your neck can ache a little from looking up. Seat could do with a little more padding, as could the arm rests.... More

Sold as restricted view and it's certainly that! Post to the left of you isn't too bad and doesn't obscure things massively. Issue is more if (like me) you have someone sat in front who insists on leaning on the rail; then sightlines get tricky. There... More

The seat was comfortable enough & the legroom OK. The view was partially obscured by the handrail and you couldn't see the top half of the back wall but this didn't impact too much as most of the action took place in the middle of the stage. Although... More
