Cheap Private Lives tickets at the Gielgud Theatre
This much-anticipated transfer is set to blaze across the West End stage this summer in an explosive production that proves Noël Coward still has the power to thrill, provoke and delight.
Elyot and Amanda are glamorous, rich, reckless . . . and divorced. Five years later, their love for one another is unexpectedly rekindled when they take adjoining suites of a Riviera hotel while honeymooning with their new spouses. This chance encounter instantly reignites their passion, and they fling themselves headlong into a whirlwind of love and lust once more, without a thought for partners present or turbulences past.

The Gielgud Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station. Built in 1906, this 970 seat venue once staged a production written by Winston Churchill's mother.
The first production at the Gielgud Theatre was the musical comedy The Beauty of Bath, which opened on December 27 1906.
Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are There’s a Girl in My Soup, Kismet, Fallen Angels, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Rear Column, Design for Living, An Ideal Husband and Daisy Pulls it Off.
Today, the Gielgud Theatre enjoys consistent success and has won widespread acclaim as an eclectic venue that stages revivals of classics and contemporary productions as well as fostering new work.
The Gielgud has undergone numerous changes of identity during its long history. The theatre was originally called the Hicks Theatre after actor, manager and playwright Seymour Hicks. After a change in management in 1909 it was renamed the Globe Theatre.
Extensive refurbishments caused the theatre to close in 1987, with extensive work carried out on the gold leaf in the theatre’s auditorium.
In the Noughties the theatre was renamed the Gielgud Theatre in honour of actor Sir John Gielgud, so as to avoid confusion ahead of the (re)opening of Shakespeare’s Globe.
Refurbishments were again undertaken on the theatre in 2007, when both the exterior and interior were restored. The Gielgud reopened in January 2008.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Gielgud Theatre make it the perfect place to see drama, comedy and small scale musicals. Recent successes include Frost/Nixon, Equus, God of Carnage, Avenue Q, Hair, The Lady Killers and Chariots of Fire.
Whatever you decide to see at the Gielgud Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
