Venue overview

The Prince Edward Theatre is situated in the heart of Soho and is a formidable building that stands out on Old Compton Street. Opening as a theatre in 1930, the building is dark red brick mixed with an Art Deco auditorium. After closing during the war, it reopened as an all-purpose venue which included a boxing ring. Like many theatres at the time, it was converted to accommodate a cinema screen, and showed popular films throughout the 1950's and 60's.

In 1978 it was renamed the Prince Edward Theatre, and was home to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's musical masterpiece Evita, which kick-started the venue's association with long-running musicals. Cameron Mackintosh's revival of Miss Saigon was also seen here, followed by Disney's Broadway hit Aladdin.

A very large and beautiful theatre, the auditorium is split across three levels, with each section resulting in excellent overall views. The expansive Stalls are divided into blocks which allow for the best views in the theatre.

Good value seats

Cheaper tickets can be found in the Upper Circle, or in the loges either side of the Dress Circle and Upper Circle. These provide side-views, but do not necessarily cut off any part of the stage, and can be great bargains! Alternatively, sit in the rear few rows of the Stalls, which are typically heavily discounted but offer amazing views.

Premium seats

The best seats in the house can be found in the centre of the Dress Circle, rows B-D, seats 15-9. These seats are great for large-scale musicals, as it enables you to view the production as a whole. Alternatively, sitting in the Stalls allows for a hugely intense experience, due to the vastness of the stage.

This was an excellent seat in the front row of the stalls section. Plenty of legroom (I'm 6 ft tall) and amazing view of the stage! You're really close to the action and can see facial expressions so clearly which is fantastic. You also get a glimpse... More

This was the perfect front-row seat! Really good legroom, great comfort as it wasn't too narrow and the view was terrific - you really felt like being part of the show. The only possible flipside was the proximity to the speakers. If you have sensitive... More
