This cultural juggernaut has three different stages (Olivier, Lyttelton, Cottesloe) and an innovative artistic director, Nicholas Hytner (who also directs). Get a backstage tour of the scene shop or reserve tickets to classics like Shaw’s Major Barbara or new hits including Afterlife by Michael Frayn; production values here are consistently of the highest caliber.

 

Insider Tip: Thanks to the long-running Travelex program, more than half the tickets to each performance in the 1,160-seat Olivier theater are $20; book online or by phone.
