Shaftesbury Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Shaftesbury 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 Shaftesbury Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Tottenham Court Road tube station. Built in 1911, this 1400 seat venue is the last theatre (of six) to have been built on Shaftesbury Avenue.
The first production at the Shaftesbury Theatre was The Three Musketeers, which opened on December 26 1911. Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are Carmen, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Hair, West Side Story, Carousel, Tommy and Rent.
Today, the Shaftesbury Theatre enjoys consistent success and is especially renowned for staging large scale musicals.
Like any long-serving institution it’s experienced its fair share of ups, downs and changes over the years. Still operating under its original title of the New Prince’s Theatre, the venue underwent extensive modification in the early 1960s and, under the new management of Charles Clore and EMI, was renamed the Shaftesbury Theatre in 1962.
In 1973 part of the ceiling fell in during a performance of Hair, forcing the closure of the long running production. After restoration work, the theatre reopened in 1974.
British farceur Ray Cooney formed the Theatre of Comedy company in 1983 and took out a lease on the Shaftesbury Theatre. Run For Your Wife was the first of Cooney’s shows to be staged at the Shaftesbury, followed by a season of works that exemplified British stage comedy at its finest. Revenues from this massively successful season enabled the Theatre of Comedy to purchase the Shaftesbury outright in 1984.
In 2006 a major overhaul began, in which the entire auditorium was re-carpeted, new seats were installed and the front of house areas were redecorated. The theatre reopened in October 2007.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Shaftesbury Theatre make it the perfect place to see large-scale musicals. Recent successes include Daddy Cool, Fame, Hairspray, Derren Brown Svengali, Rock of Ages, From Here to Eternity, The Pajama Game and Memphis.
Whatever you decide to see at the Shaftesbury Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
