About Phoenix Theatre

The Phoenix Theatre opened on 24 Sept. 1930. It was built on the site of the Alcazar Music Hall, a performance space that had fallen from grace into a casino.

Noël Coward’s Private Lives opened the Phoenix Theatre, starring Noel Coward and Laurence Olivier. On Coward's 70th birthday, the bar in the foyer of the theatre was given the name the Noël Coward Bar in his honour.

The theatre’s greatest success arrived in November 1991 in the form of Blood Brothers, Willy Russell’s musical. It ran for 21 years, finally closing on 10 Nov. 2012. The Phoenix Theatre was also home to the West End premiere of Come From Away.

Phoenix Theatre Seating Information

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

The seats in the Stalls offer very good views of the stage, with a light rake in the seating helping seats further back.

The view from the Dress Circle is generally very good, though the rake of the seating is not as noticeable as in other theatres.

The Grand Circle is surprisingly close to the stage, which is great for feeling involved in the show.

Additional Information

Venue opens 1hr 30min before showtime. Please arrive with plenty of time, latecomers will be admitted at a suitable point, which may be the interval.
