Venue overview

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.

Good value seats

The Upper Circle is incredibly inexpensive for the views offered! Although legroom can be quite tight, it is possible to enjoy the performance when leaning over the safety rail! Sitting in the rear of the Stalls is also an excellent option for audience members on a budget, as the whole stage is visible for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Premium seats are situated around the centre of rows F-G in the Stalls, although surrounding seats in the Stalls offer equally good views. With most of the seats in the Stalls priced similarly, aim to sit five or six rows back from the front for the best experience. Sitting towards the front of the Dress Circle is also a good option for large-scale musicals.

Got this seat as a dayseat. Wasn’t sure about row R as normally a front stalls girl. But as the theatre is quite small it didn’t feel as far back as you’d think. You can easily see between heads and the rake gets better towards the back of stalls. Legroom... More

The seat was just about reasonably comfortable, though the lack of legroom here doesn’t help. This seat is a little far from the stage, though again, not terrible. The dress circle does cut roughly a third off the top of the proscenium from here, though... More

The view of the stage from this seat was mostly clear, although to catch any action on the extreme left of the stage I did have to adjust my head to see around the gentleman in front. This is a little far from the stage for my liking, especially for this... More
