One of the West End's most established venues is one for traditional theatre fans
Unlike its West End peers, Theatre Royal Haymarket’s repertoire trips along at quite pace. Record-breaking musicals and long-running classics are passed over in favour of straight plays, and the theatre plays host to a healthy clutch of openings each year. An ornate, regal interior, one of the finest in theatreland, sets off classics such as Edward Bond’s ‘The Sea’ and Steven Berkoff’s ‘On The Waterfront’ and you’ll likely catch a thesp or celeb in the audience.
The grade I listed building seems to be a continued draw for big name actors, while the Masterclass initiative allows emerging, aspiring young writers to develop their talent.
Tickets range from £15 for seats way up in the gallery to in the £100-mark in the stalls, depending on show and availability.
