The Garrick Theatre is incredibly intimate, with its tight U-shaped auditorium. This is one of the capital’s middle sized to smaller venues with 650 seats over 3 levels, the stalls, dress circle and upper circle. Many seats have less than perfect views, impeded by the narrow proscenium arch. It might be wise to avoid end-of-row seats in the circle, in row C and beyond.
Stalls end-of-row seats M to X have no aisle and sit right up against the wall, but because the rows here are just six seats wide it’s easy enough to get in and out! Pillars get in the way at seats 7 and 18 in rows N – Q, T – X. Because the stage is so low, the views from central stalls seats aren’t restricted in any way.
Watch out for the safety barrier in the centre aisle in the upper circle, which can get in the way. And while the six boxes at dress circle level are comfy and private, the views aren’t too good. J and H are better than G and F, and they all cost about the same. The best seats in the house? Probably BB1 and 2 in the stalls and the front of the stalls in general.
