The Duke is where Puccini saw 'Madame Butterfly' and decided to write the opera; JM Barrie premiered 'Peter Pan' and Al Pacino wowed British crowds starring in David Mamet's 'American Buffalo'. Its colourful reputation outshines its productions in some cases, though the Duke of York's Theatre still boasts a solid mix of comedies, musicals, classic dramas and the odd spangly moment – David Walliams in his West End debut for example.

‘The Moderate Soprano’ review
A genteel middle-aged English love story frames operatic levels of passion, betrayal and vanity. And highly appropriate too, when Glyndebourne is the setting and the subject. The champagne picnicker’s favourite opera house has a history worth hearing....Off-West End Until Saturday June 30 2018

Beautiful theatre which has a real closeness about it's feel and allows you to feel connected to the performance.
My daughter and I watched the matinée performance of Jeeves and Wooster 'Perfect Nonsense' on December 27th. It was a most memorable and wonderful theatrical experience! We laughed from start to finish. Our thanks go to the three wonderful actors and the production staff - please thank them personally for me. Best wishes, Marina O'Callaghan.
I attended Constellations from the upper circle. My tickets were first circle but I was not permitted into that area because I arrived at 7:30 for a 7:30 performance. During the performance, I was closely monitored by a member of staff who took exception to my placing my legs over the chair back in front of me. The seats seem to have been designed for people with half my height.
