The Wyndham’s Theatre is a medium-sized West End theatre located next to Leicester Square station with a capacity of 878 seats. The theatre is set across four levels and generally has good views available throughout, Each level is both shallow and features extremely raked seating, however, some of the seats at the ends of rows do have minor restrictions.
Premium seats are in the front of the Royal Circle, in the centre of rows B-F that have views that will not be obstructed by audience members in front due to the high rake and offer completely unobstructed views of the stage. The front of the Stalls section is also a good option for intimate plays, although due to the high stage in the venue, it can pay to sit more than three rows back.
Theatregoers on a budget looking to book cheap tickets to Next To Normal can find great value in both the Grand Circle and Balcony which both offer exceptionally clear, although distant, views of the stage. Other value can be found by studying the seating plan to exploit cut-off points in the price bands throughout the theatre and also by sitting towards the ends of rows or further back in the auditorium to bring prices down.
How Can I Book Cheap Tickets At The Wyndham’s Theatre?
The Wyndham’s Theatre do sometimes offer a small selection of ‘day tickets’ to shows for die-hard bargain hunters willing to pitch up early in the morning and queue. Other ways to secure cheap tickets would be to concentrate on either midweek and off-peak performances with the weeks that follow directly after school holidays being particularly successful.
Will There Ever Be Discount Tickets To The Wyndham’s Theatre Online?
This will very much depend on market forces however theatre producers do tend to work week by week when it comes to pricing structures so it can be beneficial to check prices on a regular basis checking for potential discount tickets. There will always be quiet weeks in the West End and if you are flexible with dates then this could be very much to your advantage and potentially bring big savings.
Should I Avoid Booking Tickets To The Wyndham’s Theatre That Features a Restricted View?
The Wyndham’s Theatre has four tiers – stalls on the ground floor with a direct view of the stage, the royal circle on the first floor looking down, then the grand circle on the second floor, and finally on the third floor and very high up there is the balcony. The stalls section has minor issues with the overhang from the royal circle that can affect the view of the stage from row N onwards. The four front rows are also not raked, but apart from that the stalls seats offer excellent views of the stage. In the royal circle it is only the seats in row G that can be affected by the overhang from the grand circle but there can sometimes be issues with legroom which may not be ideal for taller patrons. The seats in Grand Circle feature the same legroom issues and are set very high up in this theatre with the balcony section set even higher up and feels a long way from the stage, but with no restrictions to the view. Any tickets that feature a restricted view should be clearly marked for transparency and should also be priced accordingly. It is always recommended to check the seating plan thoroughly before you book.
Is It Cheaper To Book Matinee Tickets To The Wyndham’s Theatre?
It can be. When certain productions feature a big name in the lead role it is often the case that they will allow the understudy to perform for the midweek matinee performance and this is usually reflected in the price of the ticket so if it is the actual production that you are more interested in than the personnel then it can bring big savings to check midweek matinee prices on a regular basis
