Venue overview

Formerly the Queen's Theatre, the Sondheim Theatre is situated on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue and has housed Les Misérables since 2004, which transferred to the venue from the Palace Theatre. Opening in 1907, the theatre has an Edwardian auditorium and after being destroyed in WWII, the foyer was rebuilt in a modern style. Further refurbishment took place in 2009, which improved public spaces and increased seating capacity.

The theatre was renamed in honour of prolific composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim on 15 July 2019.

Seating for Les Misérables is best in the Dress Circle and Upper Circle, as the Stalls is drastically affected by the overhang. Pricing reflects the show rather than the views offered in the seating, so it is best to research extensively before booking tickets.

Good value seats

It's worth sitting in the slip seats of the Dress Circle, especially if you have seen Les Misérables before. These seats are usually heavily discounted, but you can see the entire stage quite close-up from these seats with a bit of leaning! Otherwise, sit centrally in the Upper Circle for a distant, but clear view of the stage.

Premium seats

The best seats in the house for this particular production can be found in the centre and front of the Dress Circle, where you can feel involved in the action and are able to take it all in. Alternatively, sit in the front of the Stalls to feel entirely immersed!

The view will be slightly restricted on stage left; however, it is an excellent seat for the price. Great proximity to the action and certainly an ideal seat for someone who has maybe seen the show before and is looking for a mid to low price range ticket. More

Not much legroom which was to be expected with this seat but an incredible view. The only thing I would warn is that you can see the stalls audience and a lot of them wrre using their phones throughout the show which was quite off-putting. More

Although you are quite far back in the stalls, you still get a clear view of the stage and just about feel immersed in the show. The top of the Dress Circle just misses from cutting off any of your view so I would be careful sitting any further back.... More
