About the Queen's Theatre

The Queen’s Theatre is situated in the heart of Theatreland on Shaftesbury Avenue. The theatre was opened in 1907 and has an Edwardian style auditorium. After being destroyed during World War II the foyer was rebuilt in a modern style which still presides today. Extended refurbishment took place in 2009 which improved public areas and increased seating capacity. The theatre has been the home of the world’s longest running musical Les Miserables since 2004. Seating at the theatre is often complained about, with most audience members preferring to sit in either the Dress Circle or the Upper Circle. The Stalls section is vast, with no divisions and is inhibited by the deep overhang of the Dress Circle which is the first tier at street level. Pricing of each section does not effectively represent the quality of each seat, and so Seat Plan advises caution when booking. The modern façade and foyer make the theatre feel somewhat gloomy, which is perhaps fitting with the nature of the show.

Big Budget Tip

The best seats in the house in this case are the front centre of the Dress Circle. Here you can feel involved with the show whilst being able to take it all in and enjoying the improved sound quality the theatre has to offer.

Best Value Tip

It’s worth taking a risk on one of the restricted view seats, especially those in the Dress Circle. Seats in the front two rows of the Stalls are also usually discounted, but provide an exciting view of the stage up close for those wanting to see the show on
