Booking & Theatre Info For The Phoenix Theatre

The Phoenix Theatre is a medium size West End theatre with a capacity of 1028 seats. The venue benefits from a deep auditorium that has a tall and narrow feel to it but there are thankfully few obstructions to the view of the stage and due to the raking of the seating the stage can be seen clearly from most seats.

The best seats in the theatre are located in the mid-centre of the Stalls, most specifically in rows C-K which offer clear, unobstructed views of the whole stage and have good legroom. Seats in the front rows of the Dress Circle also offer excellent panoramic views of the stage for those who prefer to view the stage from an elevated position.

For those on a budget or looking for value and cheap tickets to Stranger Things: The First Shadow, sitting towards the end of rows offers excellent, and often discounted views of the stage and as there is only a very slight curve around the stage there is still a good view of the stage even from the very end of a row. The Grand Circle also offers good value for money with completely clear views of the stage for a very reasonable price.
