Gillian Lynne Theatre Seating Plan

The Gillian Lynne Theatre is a medium size West End theatre which has two levels of seating and a capacity of 1299 seats.

The venue has a thrust stage that juts into the auditorium and is surrounded by seats in a square horseshoe shape with seats at the sides of rows I-S face the stage from the side.

Premium seats in the venue are located in the mid-front section of the Stalls section with the most central seats offering the best views of the stage. Seating in the theatre is well-raked to ensure a good view from most angles. For the most central views of the stage it is recommended to sit in seats 15-37.

Bargain hunters looking for value should look at seats in either the Circle or in seats down the sides of the thrust stage to book cheap tickets to The Wizard Of Oz however these do offer very angled views of the stage although productions that  generally showcase at the Gillian Lynne Theatre take this into account and play to all sides of the audience, so you should not feel isolated or miss any of the action by sitting in these seats.

Where Is The Best Place In The Theatre To Book Tickets?

The unusual layout of the seats in the Gillian Lynne Theatre offers plenty of opportunity to find value in the price of tickets, but the centre stalls seats in row I do offer an exceptional view of the stage with plenty of legroom and easy access from the corridor in front. The front row of the circle in the centre also offers a great view if you prefer to be elevated however there is a railing there so they are perhaps not ideal for small children although ‘booster’ seats are available at the theatre.

Should I Avoid Restricted View Tickets At The Gillian Lynne Theatre?

There are only two tiers in the theatre and the strange seating plan is designed to offer good views of the stage which does apply for the majority of seats. There are some minor restrictions to seating on the extreme sides of both the stalls and circle however these will only affect the action happening right on the very sides of the stage and shouldn’t hinder your enjoyment too much. The only other tickets to feature restrictions would be the front row of the circle due to a railing. It is always advisable to check the seating plan thoroughly before booking tickets to ensure full transparency and peace of mind over your purchase.

How Can I Book Cheap Tickets To The Gillian Lynne Theatre?

It is advisable to avoid peak times such as school holidays and weekends when looking for bargains for tickets at the Gillian Lynne Theatre. The layout of the theatre offers plenty of scope when looking for good value in the ticket price and seats at the rear of the stalls and a little to the sides tend to be well priced and the majority have a clear view of the stage. As with most businesses that rely on the public, footfall the West End has both peaks and troughs and the quiet months of November, January and February usually sees a downward movement in the price of tickets which can give big savings.

Why Do My Tickets Have A Booking Fee Included?

If you have purchased tickets from a third party such as a website or through the official retail outlets in Leicester Square rather than directly from the box office at the Gillian Lynne Theatre then it is likely that they will include a booking fee if you have booked during peak periods. The reason for this is that the producers of the show will always attempt to maximise profit for the production and will therefore sell to agents at full price during busy times forcing agents to add on a booking fee to make a profit.

The booking fee should be no more than 25% though if you are booking through official agents who are members of the Society of Ticket Agents and Retailers (STAR) and during quieter periods when the footfall is not so strong there is often great value to be had as the producers will then sell to agents at a negotiated discount which will then be passed onto the consumer sometimes resulting in big savings on the face value.
