About Garrick Theatre

The Garrick Theatre opened in 1889, and is named after actor David Garrick. When the theatre was built, architects discovered an underground river on the site!

The theatre became associated with comedy in 1982 with a four-year run of the farce No Sex Please, We’re British. This was the longest-running show at the Garrick, until J. B. Priestley’s An Inspector Calls transferred from the Aldwych Theatre in 1995 and resided for six years.

In recent years, a number of musicals have played here, including A Little Night Music, Chicago, and The Scottsboro Boys. In 2015, Kenneth Branagh took up residency at the Garrick for a year-long season of plays with his own theatre company.

Garrick Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has three levels – Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle. In the Stalls, the view of the top of the stage is slightly obscured by the overhang of the Dress Circle from Row N onwards.

In the Dress Circle, the view of the stage is not obscured by the overhang of the Upper Circle, but the ceiling can feeel low for those in the last row. The seats are designed in a horseshoe shape around the theatre and the Dress Circle offers good sightlines.
