Duke of York’s Theatre

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 Duke of York is one of those not so big theatres in the West End. It's full of history, character and quirkiness. If you are looking to seat in the Stalls, don't buy further than row M as after that the overhanging circle is very low and you won't see top half of the scene. Surprisingly there are still binoculars to rent for £1, in most theatres they either gone or you rent it separately much more expensive. The bar is rather small but the interior is charming, good service.


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.
