History

The Noël Coward Theatre is on St. Martin’s Lane in the West End. It opened in March 1903, built by Sir Charles Wyndham, directly behind Wyndhams’ Theatre, which he had completed only 4 years previously.

The theatre was originally named the New Theatre. In 1973 it was renamed as the Albery, after Sir Bronson Albery who managed the theatre for many years.

Since 2005 it has been owned by Delfont Mackintosh Ltd. The theatre underwent a major refurbishment in 2006, and reopened with the new name the Noël Coward Theatre.

It was named after the great British Playwright Sir Noël Coward as he appeared at the New Theatre in 1920, in I’ll Leave It To You – the first West End Production of one his plays.

The theatre has a capacity of 872, across 4 levels. It is a Grade II Listed structure.

During the Blitz, when both the Old Vic and Sadler’s Wells theatres were destroyed, the companies re-located to the New Theatre until their own buildings were rebuilt in 1950’s.

One of the most successful shows to play the New Theatre opened 30 June 1960. It was Lionel Bart’s Oliver!, and ran for 2,618 performances

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
