The seating capacity for The Playhouse Theatre is relatively small compared with most in the West End, with a capacity to sit 786 people on three levels – Stalls, Dress Circle and Upper Circle. Because of the theatre’s intimate size, each section offers a good view of the stage.


Stall seats are located on the ground floor of the auditorium and are closest to the stage. Seats in this section all offer great views and you will feel a part of the show, being so close in such a small theatre.

Dress Circle

The Dress Circle is located above the Stalls. Seats here are usually the same price as the Stalls except for the back few rows, and views are great from up here if you like to sit a little further back and take in the whole stage.

Upper Circle

The Upper Circle is situated above the Dress Circle, and seats here are the cheapest. You may feel quite far from the stage but most views are fine.

For access seating, contact the box office’s access line on 0844 871 7677.
