The Savoy Theatre opened on 21 Oct. 1929. The building was known for being the first public building to be lit entirely by electricity.

When a fire ravaged the theatre in 1990, destroying the interior, it was meticulously restored by Sir William Whitfield to the original 1929 designs. The theatre reopened on 19 Jul. 1993.

The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company played several seasons at the theatre over the past 20 years, their last production being HMS Pinafore in 2003.

The theatre has also housed several musicals, including She Loves Me in 1994 starring John Gordon Sinclair and Ruthie Henshall, and has played host to musicals exclusively since 2006.

Savoy Theatre Seating Information

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

In the Stalls, the legroom throughout is very good, and the seating is well raked to ensure good views.

In the Dress Circle, the overhang of the Grand Circle affects the view from Row K onwards. The amount of legroom also decreases the further back you sit.

The Grand Circle feels rather far from the stage.
