Venue overview

The Phoenix Theatre opened in the 1930's and was renowned for premiering new plays by prolific playwrights such as Noel Coward. The entrance faces Charing Cross Road and is designed in an Italianate and Neo Classical style. The theatre is most famous for housing the long-running Blood Brothers, as well as recent musicals Bend It Like Beckham and Guys and Dolls. Gary Barlow musical The Girls makes its London premiere at the venue.

Split across three levels, the theatre has a traditional auditorium with a standard West End views on offer throughout the seating. It is a deep auditorium, with a tall and narrow feel but few obstructions. The stage is raked, meaning action can be clearly seen from most seats.

Good value seats

Sit towards the ends of any rows for an excellent, discounted view of the stage. As the seats barely curve around the stage, this means that you still get a great view even when seated at the very end of a row. Sit in the Grand Circle for a completely clear view of the stage for a discounted price.

Premium seats

Premium seats are located in the mid-centre of the Stalls, specifically in rows C-K. These rows offer clear, unobstructed views of the entire stage, with comfortable seating and good legroom. Stall seats are excellent for those looking to be immersed in an intimate production. Alternatively, seats in the front rows of the Dress Circle are excellent, offering panoramic views of the stage.

Really fantastic seats in the stalls. You're at an almost perfect distant from the stage to not have to crane your neck or feel like you can't take in the whole spectacle of the production. You can still see the actor's expressions though which is gr... More

The stage is really high for Come From Away, so it is definitely a restricted view - even more so when you're on the sides of the row. If you've seen the show before it likely won't be an issue. The show moves at a fast pace so even if you're missing... More
