Cheap Hobson's Choice tickets at the Vaudeville Theatre
Harold Brighouse's classic comic love story is the tale of a Salford cobbler with three unruly daughters that owes more than a little to King Lear and Cinderella. The homage is purely intentional.

Henry Horatio Hobson is one of the greatest comic characters in English drama. Self-made man, shopkeeper, skinflint and boozer, he’s a tyrant to his daughters and a law unto himself.
When Maggie, his eldest daughter, defies Hobson’s wishes by marrying Will Mossop, his own boot-maker, a battle of wills begins in which he stands to lose his customers, his girls and his pride, but ultimately it is Hobson’s choice.
2016 will mark the one hundredth anniversary of the first UK production of Harold Brighouse’s classic comedy, which is rich with laughter, wit and warmth.

Playing Henry Hobson, the bibulous bully of the title, Martin Shaw gives a performance that is at once barnstorming and, as the production arrives in the West End after a tour, too often suspended in its own dyspeptic bubble.- Dominic Maxwell

Vaudeville Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Vaudeville Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Vaudeville Theatre is situated on The Strand in the West End of London, close to Charing Cross rail and tube stations. The Vaudeville Theatre has had just five owners since 1892. The current, 700 seat venue was built in 1926.
The first production at the Vaudeville Theatre was RSVP by Archie de Bear, which opened on February 23 1926. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Quality Street, The Catch of the Season, Salad Days, Kat and the Kings, Stomp, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Deep Blue Sea and An Ideal Husband.
Today, the Vaudeville Theatre enjoys consistent success and has established a reputation for staging short runs featuring big-name international actors.
Like any long-serving institution, it’s been through its fair share of changes over the years. Today’s Vaudeville building is actually the third theatre to stand on the present site since 1870. The first venue opened as The Vaudeville Theatre in April 1870. It had a large auditorium with a capacity of 1000 across four seating levels. The theatre was completely reconstructed in 1880 and that second building opened in January of the following year.
In 1889 the theatre was refurbished in order to provide more spacious seating and a decorative ceiling. During the coming years the theatre became popular for staging musical comedies. The theatre was reconstructed for a third and final time in 1926.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Vaudeville Theatre make it the perfect place to see a wide range of dramas and comedies. Recent successes include In the Forest Dark and Deep, Broken Glass, Swallows and Amazons, Master Class and What the Butler Saw.
Whatever you decide to see at the Vaudeville Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
