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.

I would have liked to be a bit closer to the front but overall any seat in the dress circle is amazing. Only disadvantage is the legroom, which is quite inexistent, but it is the same way in the entire theatre so you will have to bear with it! More

Considering you are so far back and near the end of the row, the view from here is surprisingly good. You do feel a little distant from the stage but will still have a great experience/view. There shouldn't really be any problem with heads in the way,... More
