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!

Amazing view, dead centre! Could see everything on the stage and the top of the barricade. Amazing view, none of the action missed, could not fault it! A bit pricey but for first time seeing the show worth every penny! More

Seats were comfy and legroom was fine. The seats were the very back of the dress circle, great for running to the loo during the interval. View was amazing, the only part of the staging which was restricted from view was the top of the barricade, but... More

I found this seat more uncomfortable compared to other theatres as it felt like the whole theatre was quite cramped. The picture I took was quite zoomed in, however the view was good especially considering that this is the furthest row back. I paid quite... More
