Wyndham's Theatre

Wyndham’s is a West End theatre with genuine pedigree. It was here that JM Barrie staged a series of plays from 1903; Graham Greene chose it to premiere 1953’s The Living Room; and Edward Albee presented the autobiographical ‘Three Tall Women’ starring Maggie Smith here. It is also where Madonna made her rather awkward West End debut in 2002. Today, Wyndham’s is best known for hosting Donmar Warehouse’s programme of big plays and big names that opened in 2008 with Chekhov’s ‘Ivanov’. The production set the bar high for a season that featured Derek Jacobi in ‘Twelfth Night’, Judi Dench in ‘Madame de Sade’ and Jude Law in ‘Hamlet’, all directed by Donmar’s artistic director, Michael Grandage.

Wyndham Theatre is Grade III listed building which is situated literally next to the Leicester Square Station. It's one of the medium/small theatres in the West End. The stalls go up to the row P and even though it says that the view is restricted somewhere at the last rows due to the overhanging circle, I think it's actually reasonably good. The seats are quite narrow and the lavatories are shockingly small, you literally can't turn around.  

The decor of the theatre is beautiful with lots of impressive paintings, candelabras, ceiling decorations and so on. 


Beautiful old theatre with high quality programme and often famous actors, the building is well maintained and has a charming character. That being said, avoid the cheap but extremely uncomfortable balcony seats; anyone with long legs or back problems won’t have that much of a nice time, even if the view is not too bad.
