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.

I found this seat fairly comfortable, with enough leg room, although anyone much taller would likely be a bit cramped. This is marked as restricted view because of the safety rail that you can see in the picture, but for the price this is much more w... More

Being the front row, the legroom is optimal, as is the comfort. The view is excellent, too - the only moments I struggled to see an actor's face was when they were far in the right-hand corner at the very front of the stage (with their back to me, ef... More
