Cheap Travesties tickets at the Apollo Theatre
Tom Stoppard’s dazzling comedy of art, love and revolution features James Joyce, Tristan Tzara and Lenin as remembered - and misremembered - by Henry Carr, a minor British diplomat in Zurich 1917. When Gwendolen and Cecily wander in from The Importance of Being Earnest Henry’s mind wanders too. He knows he was Algernon in a production in Zurich. But who was the other one? The original production of Travesties won the Evening Standard award for Best Comedy and the Tony award for Best Play. This first London revival in over 20 years will be directed by Patrick Marber and will star Tom Hollander.

Apollo Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Apollo 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 Apollo Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station.
Built in 1901, this 775 seat venue has three seating levels and was named after the Greek and Roman god of music and the arts.
The first production at the Apollo Theatre was the Belle of Bohemia, an American comedy by George Lederer which opened on February 21 1901.
In the theatre’s formative years it housed a series of successful Edwardian musical comedies and later a number of plays and revivals. Among the notable works to have played at the theatre are R.C Sherriff’s Journey’s End, Noel Coward’s Private Lives, Driving Miss Daisy, A Mad House in Goa and Defending the Caveman.
The longest-running show ever to grace the Apollo's stage was the quintessential 1960s farce Boeing Boeing, starring Patrick Cargill and David Tomlinson, which played at the Apollo from 1962 before finally transferring to the Duchess Theatre in 1965.
Although the theatre is over 100 years old, very little about the building has changed over that time. When it was refurbished in 1932 a private foyer was installed for those wishing to access the Royal Box.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Apollo Theatre make it the perfect place to see intimate drama, small scale musicals and comical farce.
In the past the venue was synonymous with musicals but in recent years dramatic work has been seen a lot more. Recent successes include The Glass Menagerie, Rain Man, Three Days of Rain, Yes Prime Minister, Jerusalem, The Madness of George III and Long Day’s Journey Into Night.
Whatever you decide to see at the Apollo Theatre we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
