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 saw the National Theatre's production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime here at The Gielgud Theatre. We had great seats in the Dress Circle area as we can see the stage clearly and the actors' expression from our seats. For the price, it was a good deal.

2 plays in week, I am a lucky man indeed. Unfortunately for this play, I went with very high expectations having been to the incredible Yelp goes to Charlie & the Chocolate Factory event the night before. A tough act to follow.

First, the theatre. Superbly placed on Shaftesbury Avenue, the home of the West End in my opinion, the Gielgud is another beautiful building with an exterior that...more
