The Piccadilly Theatre opened on 27 Apr. 1928. The Piccadilly Theatre opened with a production of Blue Eyes, but then the theatre was turned into a cinema by Warner Brothers and was the house of the very first talking picture to be shown in England – Al Jolson in The Singing Fool.

Suffering considerable damage during World War II, the venue had to be partially rebuilt and reopened again in April 1945 with a production of Agatha Christie’s Appointment with Death.

The Piccadilly Theatre is also known for the ITV variety show Live From the Piccadilly which began in 1986, playing on Sunday evenings and hosted by Jimmy Tarbuck. Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Barbara Dickson, Lynn Redgrave, Julia McKenzie and Dame Edna all appearing in productions over the years.

Piccadilly Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has three levels - Stalls, Royal Circle and Grand Circle.

The Stalls offers very good views of the stage, with a noticeable rake in the seating.

The overhang of the Royal Circle affects the view from Row F onwards, but the seating at this level is very well raked which allows for excellent views.

The Grand Circle is well-raked, allowing good views of the stage, but the legroom is rather slim at this level.
