Good Value Seats

Sit in the back two "restricted view" rows of the Stalls for an exceptionally clear view of the stage without obstruction. The only downside is that the stage is slightly far away, but there is plenty of legroom! Otherwise, sit in the Lilian Baylis Circle for some potential bargains.

Premium Seats

Sit in the mid-front of the Stalls for the best overall view of the stage and a guarantee of no restrictions. The best rows are E-L, sitting as centrally as possible. Alternatively, sit in rows A-D of the Dress Circle for a great panoramic view of the stage.

Past Shows

Overview

The Old Vic Theatre dates back to 1818, when it was first used as a playhouse. It became heavily associated with Lillian Baylis in the 1900's, who turned the venue around by presenting Shakespeare plays and seasons of opera and ballet, before moving to what is now known as Sadler's Wells. In WWII, the building suffered terrible bomb damage but was later restored. Kevin Spacey was the Old Vic's Artistic Director before stepping down and being replaced by Matthew Warchus.

A versatile building, the Old Vic sees musicals, plays and dance pieces performed and has previously adapted the auditorium into the round. The shape of the stage can be extended, and the auditorium is built in a semi-circle that offers a variety of views. Prices differ depending on where you choose to sit.
