Playhouse Theatre Capacity

The Kit Kat Club is an intimate refurbishment of the Playhouse Theatre with a capacity of 580 seats. This new layout was created specifically for Cabaret and recreates the feel of a smoky inter-war Berlin burlesque or variety venue. The Stalls has been adapted to include on-stage table seating as well as standard seating on both sides of the stage. The Dress Circle is also positioned over both sides of the stage and the Upper Circle is only on one side. The view is intimate throughout all levels although some seats to the side of the Upper Circle miss certain areas at the sides of the stage. Performers make use of space throughout the Stalls, where the experience is more immersive than the upper levels.

Playhouse Theatre Seating Plan

Good value seats

The front row of the Dress Circle is often discounted due to the curve of the balcony and offers exceptional value for money. Although there is slightly limited legroom, these seats are a great place to sit. Row E of the Dress Circle is usually discounted but offers great views. Avoid the Upper Circle where possible.

Premium seats

The Stalls provide the best view of the stage, with no restrictions even at the very rear of the seating. Aim to sit as centrally as possible, as a gradual rake means that your view may be blocked by audience members seated at the rear. Alternatively, sit in the first three rows of the Dress Circle for musicals.

Brilliant seat! Could see all facial expressions and didn’t miss a second of the action. For the price I couldn’t fault this seat. It was comfortable and had adequate legroom and as it’s on an aisle lots of space and also close to the nearest bath... More
