The Savoy Theatre is absolutely steeped in history; built in 1881, it was the first theatre to be entirely lit by electricity! Unfortunately the theatre burnt down in the 1990’s, destroying all but the stage and backstage areas. The theatre was rebuilt in 1993 to its old 1930’s Art Deco interior. The fire may have been a small blessing in disguise as the auditorium was arguably built to be more audience friendly and the theatre now has a good seating rake and very little issues with sight-line obstructions.
With almost 1,200 seats spread across three levels, the Savoy Theatre is of a moderate capacity for a West End theatre but is often referred to as being tall. Due to the height of the seating in the auditorium, seats toward the back of the Grand Circle can feel quite a distance away from the stage, however these seats tend to be the cheapest in the house.
