About Noël Coward Theatre

The Noël Coward Theatre opened as the New Theatre on 12 Mar. 1903. In 1973, the theatre’s name was changed from the New Theatre to the Albery Theatre, as a tribute to the theatre’s long-serving manager Sir Bronson Albery. Sir Cameron Mackintosh acquired the theatre through his company, Delfont Mackintosh Theatres, in 2005 and renamed the theatre in memory of the famous playwright, Noel Coward.

The theatre famously played host to two theatre companies whose theatres were destroyed during the Blitz – the Old Vic and Sadler’s Wells both performed at the theatre until their new theatres were built in the 1950s.

The theatre also played host to the premiere of Lionel Bart’s world famous musical Oliver! The show was a huge success, running for 2,618 performances.

Several notable actors have appeared in productions at the theatre, including Judi Dench, Helen Mirren and Patrick Stewart.

Noël Coward Theatre Seating Information

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

The Stalls offers excellent views throughout. The high setting of the stage allows for good views.

The view from the Royal Circle is completely unobstructed and the seating is well raked.

The Grand Circle is set fairly high, but again offers unobstructed views of the stage.

Whilst the Balcony is high, the seats are well raked and comfortable with a good amount of legroom.
