Venue overview

The Lyric Theatre is the oldest surviving theatre on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue and is decorated in an ornate Renaissance design. With a seating capacity of 967, the theatre is split across four levels and has housed Michael Jackson's tribute show Thriller Live! since 2008.

There are restricted views in certain areas of the auditorium due to the placement of support pillars, which can result in major viewing obstructions. The rows curve into a horseshoe shape, which can cause seats at the ends of rows to suffer from a side-angle view of the stage.

Good value seats

Due to the shape of the auditorium and the number of pillars in the Lyric Theatre there are several restricted view seats at lower cost, which could be good for those looking to view the show on a budget - especially if they have seen the show before. Seats surrounding premium seats in the Stalls offer a very similar view for around £20 less!

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the centre of the Stalls in rows F-J. These seats have the best view overall view of the stage, which is reflected in ticket pricing. Alternatively, seats in the front and centre of the Dress Circle can offer a great view!

Heads, heads, heads - they're always an issue for us short people. Granted, they didn't obscure centre stage from here but as the Six queens move around a lot the heads in front moved to try to see, and therefore I had to move to see around them. More

Back of stalls close to end of row. Excellent for access as there is masses of legroom. Good view of all of stage. The seat is right next to a pillar but although it is visible out of corner of your eye it doesn’t obstruct the view More

Good view, although I tend to prefer to be a few rows closer. It didn’t feel super far from the stage though. Didn’t have anyone sat in front of me so can’t comment on the rake and offset really. More
