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.

Excellent view of the stage, though may struggle is someone taller was sat in front. Leg room is fine and comfortable. Still feel close to the action even though towards the back of the stalls. Great seat More

Excellent unobstructed view of stage. Good comfort level as seats are well staggered so those sat in front to not impact view. Feel very close to the action in the dress circle. Would definitely sit here again. More

Good view of the whole stage and feel relatively close to the action, though as up in grand circle you do have to lean forward slightly to see over those in front which lowers the comfort rating. Leg room is tight but manageable More
