The Grade 2 listed splendour of the Apollo theatre is hard to beat, a popular venue since it first opened its doors in 1901 on London’s splendid Shaftesbury Avenue. The Apollo has a stellar reputation for inspirational theatreland entertainment, in line with its namesake the Greek God of the Arts, Apollo. This is a relatively intimate venue with 755 seats split across four levels. There’s a smart, cosy Stalls bar across two levels and a smaller Upper Circle bar too. Owned by Nimax theatres since 2005, it has hosted smash hit shows like Summer and Smoke and The Glass Menagerie as well as the extremely popular Rain Man and Three Days of Rain. Recently showcasing the wonderful actor David Suchet in Long Day’s Journey into Night, it’s a great place to experience the finest Shakespeare plays with a portfolio that includes Twelfth Night and Richard III. You’ll find an excellent selection of Apollo theatre tickets here on site, to suit every pocket.
