About The Gielgud Theatre
First known as the Hicks Theatre and then the Globe, the Gielgud Theatre name didn't come into play until 1997, in honour of the late, great actor Sir John Gielgud. This particular venue was chosen because Gielgud performed here many times throughout his long and illustrious career. Located on London's famous Shaftesbury Avenue, the Gielgud is close to the Queen’s theatre, the Lyric theatre and the Apollo.

Spell binding portrayal of a much loved book. True to the book and cleverly told! Sue, 22 Mar 2023
Full of students who arrived very late
We could not hear it adequately in the Grand Circle.
We lost the plot in the final act since we just couldn't hear certain characters.
Think we will need to buy the book to fully appreciate the themes and ultimate thoughts about the play.
This is very disappointing.
I paid over 70 pounds for 2 tickets. HILARY, 08 Mar 2023
Great story but spoilt by poor diction
I have not read the book or seen the Gregory Peck movie but it is a great story and script. It particularly delivers in the second half. For me, I had great difficulty in understanding many of the actors, particularly the children. I could follow the main threads but amongst others, could not understand the subplot about falling on a knife, who Billy? was or who the character at the end was who was standing under a streetlight. Whether the acoustic in the Grand Circle had something to do with it, I am not sure. I could hear Matthew Modine and the actors playing the prosecutor and Linus Deas very clearly. Andrew, 03 Mar 2023
