Sondheim Theatre capacity

Sondheim Theatre Seating Plan

The Sondheim Theatre has a capacity of 1122 seats. Section capacities are 478 Stalls , 326 Dress Circle and 318 Grand Circle. Use our interactive seating plan to view 3875 seat reviews and 1954 photos of views from seat.

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!

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.

These seats have a fantastic view for the price! You’re very close to the stage so have a brilliant view of the actors. You do need to lean forward slightly and being on the side some of the back corner is cut off however I would sit here again without... More

Initially the view looks quite restricted with the top of the stage being ‘cut off’ from the overhang but no action was missed in the new les mis production. The view forward towards the stage was fine with minimal interference with people in front. Legroom... More

The seat is tight and legroom not the best. It is also very high! The seat was sold as ‘very restricted’ however apart from a small part of the stage I didn’t think it was too bad. You are very close to the person next to you. I didn’t see Les Miserables... More
