Venue overview

The Savoy Theatre is on the Strand, next to the historic Savoy Hotel. Originally opening specifically to perform Gilbert and Sullivan musicals and operas, the auditorium suffered major fire damage in 1990, but was reopened in 1993, refurbished to the original 1929 vision. Now, the auditorium and public areas exist as a perfect representation of the original building, but with modern amenities available. The Savoy Theatre is best-known for hosting a variety of successful musicals, including Gypsy, starring Imelda Staunton and the world premiere of Dreamgirls.

Set across three levels, the Stalls exist below street-level and offer excellent sight-lines. Restrictions can be found at the rear of each section, due to the overhang of higher tiers. A very deep and narrow theatre, obstructions can be found due to safety rails.

Good value seats

The Savoy Theatre offers Day Seats, which involve queuing at the theatre before 10am to buy front row tickets for a discounted price. Alternatively, some bargains can be found in the back row of the Dress Circle, which allows you to see the entire stage. Otherwise, the Upper Circle is a good bet, despite the distance from the stage.

Premium seats

Sit in the mid-front of the Stalls, just before the overhang begins, for the best overall view of the stage. Sitting in the Dress Circle also provides some excellent views for large-scale musicals. The Savoy Theatre stage is fairly deep, allowing for action to be seen from quite far back in the auditorium.

At the back of the dress circle the stage does feel quite far away and, although the view is clear and facial expressions are mostly visible, I did feel like an outsider looking in rather than part of the action. The overhang from the upper circle is... More
