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.
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!
Recommended box seats
The Schönberg Loge and Boublil Loge, named after the composers of Les Misérables
, are great seats to book for a special occasion. The seats are located at the sides of the Dress Circle, adjacent to the stage. Just like a traditional theatre box, the loges are accessed by their own private entrance and consist of six freestanding chairs enabling patrons to get the best view and comfort. These loge seats, such as Dress Circle Boublil Loge A4
and Dress Circle Schönberg Loge C5
, receive excellent reviews from SeatPlan users. The reviews particularly praise the legroom and overall experience, which outweighs their side view location. Priced similarly to seats in the rear stalls and dress circle, booking seats in the Schönberg Loge and Boublil Loge will elevate your visit to the Sondheim Theatre and the world's longest-running musical.
Two boxes are also located in the rear of the Dress Circle at the Sondheim Theatre – Maggie’s Box and Judi’s Box. These seats are not recommended unless discounted or no other similarly priced seats are available. The boxes include a private entrance and freestanding chairs, however the view is restricted by the overhang from the Grand Circle and the heads of patrons in the Dress Circle, due to the poor rake.
