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!

A good seat, didn’t feel too far away from the stage and the overhead was enough to see over the heads in front. The dress circle does cut off the very top of the stage but not enough to impact this performance. More

This was a good seat, the rake was enough to see over the heads but the offset wasn’t great so when people in front of me leaned together to whisper I did have to try and look around them. Seat didn’t feel too far back at all like I was expecting though. More

This was a much better seat than I was expecting, I got it at the last minute as my performance was cancelled due to London moving to tier 3. The seat directly in front was unused for social distancing which really helped as the offset wasn’t great, but... More
