Apollo Victoria Theatre
A theatre built on spectacular performances
The foundations of the Apollo Victoria Theatre are not built on brick and cement, but rather the radiant voices of the Von Trapps from The Sound of Music.
Or perhaps the uncompromising confidence of men and women swaggering down the street to a backdrop of Bee Gees in Saturday Night Fever.
Whichever it may be, the Apollo Victoria has been the location of musicals that will continue to leave their legacy on the theatre.
Whether you take a seat in the first row or are perched up higher in the Circle, you’ll be thankful you arrived early so you can fully comprehend the beauty of the theatre itself.
But once you’ve settled in, with the lights and noise fading low, your eyes will be drawn towards the red curtains twitching at the hem and every ounce of your attention will be on the stage.
Home of Wicked
For over a decade, bubbling cauldrons and witches’ cowls have filled the theatre’s halls.
Wicked has captivated audiences that span generations from the moment it was first performed in 2006.
From then on, the show has gained award after award and become one of the most celebrated musicals of the London West End.
It’s understandable why Wicked has become such a success at the Apollo Victoria, recently welcoming its 10th million visitor.
The interior of the theatre is luminous and grand so when Wicked arrived, “packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes” as The Guardian describes, it was no wonder it would be sticking around for a while.
The performance and the theatre complement one another to create something truly magical.
Arriving in style
A stone’s throw away from Victoria Underground Station, getting to the theatre is simple and only takes a couple minutes’ walk from the tube.
Arriving early will be the least of your worries as the Elixir Bar is open to ticket holders an hour and a half before the show begins.
Indulge in a luxurious cocktail, wine, or beer in the calming surroundings of the bar as the buzz of excitement undoubtedly unfolds backstage.
The theatre has one of the largest capacities of any in London with over 2000 seats for you to get comfy in.
Once you’ve visited, the countdown will soon begin until your imminent return.
With three levels inside, every trip back to the Apollo Victoria will have you spotting something new.
