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 best view in the house. Perfectly central and close enough to see all the expressions while also being able to take in the whole production. Could’ve had a bit more legroom but apart from that there is absolutely nothing to fault here. More

There is a safety rail that you have to look through but otherwise a great view - my knees were touching the wall in front so if you're taller you might struggle but it was just about okay for me (at 5'6) More

Comfortable seat with good view and decent legroom. My only issue was the ventilation/aircon it was so strong, wind taping on my neck and head during the whole lenght of the show which was almost 3 hours! It gave me a headache. More
