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.

We also own the Wyndham’s and the renamed Noel Coward Theatre with the Gielgud completing the portfolio in March 2006. Major restoration of these three theatres has now been completed, demonstrating our commitment to the improvement and upgrading of all Delfont Mackintosh Theatres.

I saw The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (whew long title) and it was an excellent play. I went down to the box office when it open and managed to get a stall ticket for £15. My seat was right in the front row, which meant I had to crane my neck a little bit (the stage is high).
