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 West End 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.

Seat is fine but I found the stalls are not raked enough. No one sat in front of me or behind me, however there was a tall stocky man two rows in front and it obscured my view. I lent forward and sat up tall to see over him. More

This is a fantastic seat! Even though it's slightly to the side, the view is not affected at all. Super close to the action which made me feel really involved in the show. The seat was really comfortable and there was plenty of room for bags etc too.... More

Excellent view from this seat/part of the Savoy Theatre, actors faces are very clear. Personally, this was just on the border of being too close to the stage but still an enjoyable position in relation to the staging. Legroom is good, the row seemed to... More
