The Gielgud Theatre is part of Delfont Mackintosh Theatres, which are one of the largest London theatre owners with a portfolio of seven theatres.

Delfont Mackintosh Theatres own and run the Prince Edward Theatre, the Queen’s Theatre, the Prince of Wales Theatre, refurbished in 2004 to recreate the glamour of the 1930s, and the Novello Theatre which was renovated to celebrate its centenary in 2005.

I saw a Wednesday evening show of The Curious Incident. The theater - Dress Circle, at least - appeared only half full.

The theater is a nice, medium size. The bathrooms were packed before the show and during intermission, but everything else about its size is wonderful. From Dress Circle, you had a great view of the full stage and could see the actors' faces.

Great theatre

Even up in the gods the seats are comfy and the view isn't bad although be warned you may need to lean forward on the very front row of the grand circle

Highly recommend!more

This is definitely one of the more pleasant theatres that I've been in. The decor and surroundings (everything from the wallpaper to the framed pictures on the walls to the toilets) gave an air of artistic style and pristine condition. The theatre is of an appropriate size with good acoustics. I was sat in row G which incidentally does have a restricted view of the front right of the stage but...more
