The St Martin’s Theatre opened on 23 Nov. 1916. The building was designed as a pair with the Ambassadors Theatre.

Ricky Meyer was responsible for transferring the theatre’s current tenant, The Mousetrap, from the next-door Ambassadors Theatre to the larger St Martin’s, to continue its record-breaking run. The production began in 1952 and has been performed on the London stage ever since.

St. Martin's Theatre Seating Information

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

Although the Dress Circle overhangs the Stalls at Row J the obstruction does not block anything. All seats in the Stalls have a good view of the stage.

The overhang of the Upper Circle doesn’t affect the view from any seat in the Dress Circle.

Whilst the Upper Circle does not feel far from the stage, the view from the first two rows is impaired by a safety bar running along the front.
