Performances of The Woman In Black will continue at the Fortune Theatre until March 4th, 2023.  The Fortune Theatre is a small West End Theatre with three levels of seating and has a capacity of 431 seats. Due to the theatre having a high stage and there is no rake in the Stalls section, which can feel a little cramped with the quality of views of the stage across the auditorium varying quite dramatically so studying the seating plan prior to purchase is recommended.

Premium seats in the theatre can be found around the centre of Row D, in seats 11-14 as they do not suffer from the lack of rake and have clear views of the entire stage.

Excellent value is available throughout the Fortune Theatre, with cheap Woman In Black tickets available to book for most performances in both the Upper Circle and at the  rear of the Stalls. Restricted view seats can sometimes be worth a risk and row L is an usually a good bet for those on a budget looking for cheap London theatre tickets or last minute shows.
