There are two theatres in West street, and I came across them by chance as I was completely lost. I do know London well, but wander without a map most of the time, and look for important landmarks.
Looking at bus maps, it looks like the routes 24, 29 and 176 travel very close by. I would not touch any of the local tube stations, excepting those which are National Rail stations, which are not only likely to be accessible, but also have toilets, including some disabled toilets.
[The brand new Tottenham Court road station does not have toilets, the Crossrail budget was not large enough!]
I list these two theatres as they have quite a history in conjunction with each other.
Ambassadors Theatre – The shark is broken
West Street, London, WC2H 9ND (444)
Facilities: Infrared hearing loop
St. Martin’s Theatre – The Mousetrap
West Street, London, WC2H 9NZ (550)
Facilities: Disabled toilets, Infrared hearing loop, Wheelchair accessible
There are a series of ramps provided as needed to gain access. Nearest tube is Leicester square, which is inaccessible.

The worlds longest running play, the Mousetrap, has been running since 1952. It was originally next door at the Ambassadors theatre, and move here in1974.
