Booking & Theatre Info For The Lehman Trilogy

Performances of The Lehman Trilogy will begin at the Gillian Lynne Theatre on January 24th, 2023. The Gillian Lynne Theatre is a medium size venue which has two levels of seating and a capacity of 1299 seats. The venue features a thrust stage that is surrounded by seats in a square horseshoe shape with seats at the sides of rows I-S facing the stage from the side.

The best seats are located in the mid-front section of the Stalls on the ground floor but the seating in the theatre is well-raked and ensures a decent view from most angles. The most central views of the stage ican be found in seats 15-37.

Bargain hunters looking to secure value for money or lastminute theatre tickets should take note of seats in both the Circle or in the seats down the sides of the thrust stage to book cheap tickets to The Lehman Trilogy, however these do offer angled views of the action. Productions at the theatre do generally take this into account and deliberately play to all sides of the audience, so you should not miss any of the action by sitting in these seats.
