Latest West End News  Theatre Tickets London

Tamzin Outhwaite and Mathew Horne will join Felicity Kendall in the West End cast of Noises Off from 27th September at the Theatre Royal Haymarket as the award-winning comedy returns to London for a 12-week season.

Lindsay Posner will direct the celebrated 40th-anniversary production which opened to critical acclaim at the Phoenix Theatre in January 2023.
Speaking of the new appointments, Horne commented: “I am utterly and totally thrilled to join the now legendary company and production of this masterpiece of a play.”  Felicity Kendall also added in a statement: “I am so happy to be revisiting Noises Off and especially at the beautiful Theatre Royal Haymarket.”

Sasha Frost and Pepter Lunkuse also reprise their roles in the show, with Oscar Batterham joining the production.

Noises Off is considered one of the funniest British comedies ever written, as Michael Frayn’s witty play unravels to reveal a riotous play within a play. The production follows a hapless touring theatre company as they chaotically navigate their way through the fictional comedy, Nothing On.  We follow both the on and off-stage antics from the first shambolic rehearsals in Weston-super-Mare, all the way to their catastrophic final performance in Stockton-on-Tees.

The talented creative team behind this production features Lindsay Posner (Director), Paul Pyant (Lighting Designer), Ginny Schiller (Casting Director), Greg Clarke (Sound Designer), Ruth Cooper-Brown (Movement and Fight Director), Will Stuart (Composer), Simon Higlett (Designer), and George Jibson (Associate Director).

 

Theatre & Booking Info For Noises Off

The Theatre Royal Haymarket is a medium size West End theatre that has four levels of seating and a capacity of 893 seats. The venue boasts one of London’s most impressive Victorian auditoriums however, views of the stage can be varied because of the curve in the seating meaning that some seats offer side-angled views. Due to the slight restrictions that exist in some sections it is recommended to study the seating plan in detail prior to purchase however all seats with restrictions are clearly labelled.

Premium seats in the theatre are situated in the centre seats of rows E-J and also in the front rows of the Royal Circle which is a good vantage point and have great views of the stage from an elevated position. The front of the Royal Circle has clear view seating even at the end of rows however central seating offers the best overall experience.

The Theatre Royal Haymarket also has two boxes in the Stalls.  Located adjacent to the stage on each side of the auditorium, these boxes contain two seats each and must both be booked as a pair but offer patrons a totally private experience making them ideal for a ‘date night!’

Bargain hunters searching for cheap tickes to Noises Off can find value in the ends of the rows of the Stalls and Royal Circle even with the slight curve in the balcony, and the restricted view seats in the Upper Circle can also provide good value for money as the restrictions are minimal and should not hinder your overall enjoyment!  Seats in the Gallery however are very high up on the fourth level and feel distant to the action happening down below. This is reflected in the price but these seats may not be suitable for patrons suffering from vertigo or uncomfortable with heights.
