About the Noel Coward Theatre

The Noel Coward Theatre, formerly the Albery, is situated on St Martin's Lane. Built as a pair alongside Wyndham's Theatre, the venue was built by Charles Wyndham in 1903. Originally the New Theatre, the name was changed in 2006 as the West End transfer of Broadway's Avenue Q came in. Today, the theatre has a quick turnaround of top quality musicals and plays, including hit magic show Impossible, as well as new British musical Mrs Henderson Presents and a revival of Half a Sixpence.

Very grand and traditional in style, the Noel Coward Theatre is spread across four levels and seats almost 900 audience members. Views are restricted towards the ends of rows and in higher sections of the auditorium, due to the horseshoe shape of the auditorium.
