The Noel Coward Theatre was built in 1903, when it was known as the New Theatre. It was here that The Scarlet Pimpernel had its London premiere in 1905, and it was also here that Noel Coward made his West End debut in 1920, in a play he had written, called I’ll Leave It to You. In 1973 the theatre was renamed the Albery. It closed for refurbishment in 2005 and its name was changed again to honour Noel Coward. The reopening production was the Tony Award winning musical Avenue Q.
The building has 3 licensed bars and a capacity of 872. The seating is arranged over 4 levels. The Royal Circle offers clear views all the way to the back, and the Stalls up to row O. There are slip seats in the Grand Circle and the Balcony, which do not face the stage directly. Because of the height, patrons in the Balcony will have a restricted view.
Wheelchair access to the building is via a ramp at the second EXIT door on St Martin’s Court. This leads to Box M which has 2 spaces for wheelchair users. There’s an infra-red sound amplification system in the auditorium for the hard of hearing. A disabled toilet can be found on the Foyer level by the Cloakroom.
Leicester Square is the closest tube station (100m). There is a MasterPark car park at China Town and Trafalgar Square, and an NCP at Upper St Martin’s Lane.
