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 whole stage was visible apart from the very top. We did not miss the main action, although we did not see all the performers at times. It felt quite far away from the stage since it’s far back in the dress circle. If you can afford it, I’d recommend... More

The seat was comfy and did allow my bag a little room at my feet. The view was very slightly restricted, I had to lean forward to catch the left hand corner of the stage and sometimes the front when the actors went to the edge. But overall I was happy... More

Best seat in the house! ─ so near! ─ you're actually level with the sides where old boxes have been dressed as part of the set and some of the performers use those areas and the effect from this seat is simply stunning! ─ what more can I say except to... More
