Owned and operated by Ambassdor Theatre Group (ATG) the Phoenix was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and Bertie Crewe. It opened in 1930 with the premiere of Noel Coward's Private Lives starring the author, Gertrude Lawrence and Laurence Olivier. Many star actors have appeared at the theatre including Maggie Smith, Diana Rigg, John Gielgud, Dustin Hoffman, Derek Jacobi, Kenneth Branagh and Stephen Fry. More recently the theatre has presented a number of successful musicals including, between 1991 and 2012, Willy Russell's Blood Brothers which became the theatre's longest-running show and was seen by over 5 million people. The theatre is now home to the award-winning Broadway musical Once.

We saw "The Girls" at the Phoenix Theatre in May 2017. The cast was excellent, but the story was not stellar, at least in our opinions. I would definitely visit the Phoenix Theatre again when they offer another show that interests me.

Lovely theatre in which to enjoy a London show. Polite staff, comfy seating, good air con and clean toilets. The interval bar we used was comfortable and not crowded. Probably the best experience I've ever had in a London theatre.

The Girls was a great show, which we enjoyed. The show does not visually change a lot throughout, but the music makes up for it. The theatre is small, we sat in the stalls row C which were great seats. I would not recommend rows...More

This isn't the same as the film but a different view of the same basic plot. It tells the story from the different characters perspectives who all have their own life issues. It's a good refection of the difficulties we all encounter on life's journey....More

Really enjoyed seeing 'The Girls' at the Phoenix! Not really a family show, but pretty hilarious and sometimes moving. Was a shame the theatre wasn't very full, but it helped to be able to spread out a bit as there wasn't much leg room in...More

A beautiful, well maintained theatre currently home to 'The Girls'. The show is superb, the lighting excellent and the sound spot on. The story can be poignant, happy and uplifting. A thoroughly enjoyable evening out.

Thank you to all for the very useful information on seating. Gone for Row E in the stalls 7 & 8. Another query, is it correct that if you arrive at the theatre an hour before the performance, all drinks are half price? Thank you

To be honest... not sure? We didn't drink in the theatre.. we had a drink before the performance in the 'Phoenix' bar next door downstairs in the cellar bar. So sorry can't help I'm afraid.
