When I went: 5 July 2010, 26 June 2011, 1 December 2012, 21 May 2014, 3 September 2015, 7 January 2016, 13 June 2016, 28 November 2016
Size: Fairly small
Typical price: Expensive (up to £90 sometimes for stalls tickets)
Special points: Tight-packed seats, some of the best new shows, proximity to Charing Cross for transport
The Savoy is in a great location for shops and restaurants, even if the theatre can feel very tightly packed and the seats a bit snug.
It tends to get the first runs of new shows (which don’t tend to be world premieres but are often long-running shows from Broadway, or revivals of London productions), often starring big names, and the average age of the audience is normally fairly mature.
