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.
