The Theatre Royal Drury Lane – known simply as Drury Lane – has a unique status as the world’s oldest theatre still in operation and has played host to the greatest names in British theatre since it first raised its curtain way back in 1663. Its influence on the national consciousness was so great that it was once described as England’s fourth estate – ‘Crown, Lords, Commons and Drury Lane Playhouse’.
The unassuming entrance of the Criterion Theatre is easily overlooked amongst the cacophony of flashing neon billboards, busy traffic and the incessant crowds of bustling Piccadilly Circus, the centre of London’s glittering theatreland. To pass it by, however, would be to miss out on one of London’s most enchanting theatres. Artful use of mirrors and stunning murals of clouds and cherubs turn this underground labyrinth into an airy paradise.
The much-loved London Palladium – built on the site of a 19th-century circus and skating rink – opened on Boxing Day 1910 and became famous, partly through television, as the “Ace Variety Theatre of the World.” It is a venue to which all performers aspire and has hosted more annual Royal Variety Performances than any other theatre.
The stately and elegant Aldwych Theatre sits nobly in a commanding position at the end of a magnificent sweeping crescent at the foot of Drury Lane, which leads up to London’s bustling Covent Garden district. It’s been home to the famous Aldwych Farces, the Royal Shakespeare Company and a groundbreaking production of A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Laurence Olivier, starring his dazzling wife, Vivian Leigh, and remains one of London’s most vibrant theatres.
The colossal London Coliseum is the largest theatre in London’s glittering West End and has played host to many of the most distinctive, pioneering, iconic and unforgettable opera and ballet productions in the world. It is the home of English Opera, where its resident company, the aptly named English National Opera, leads the way in purely English sung productions.
The Royal Court
The Royal Court Theatre, which stands on the east side of historic Sloane Square in the heart of Chelsea, is a leading force in world theatre – celebrated as London’s powerhouse of new writing – energetically cultivating and showcasing undiscovered, emerging and established contemporary writing talent.
Shakespeare’s Globe is a unique landmark in English theatre’s rich cultural history. Standing proud on the South Bank of the River Thames, it is an authentic modern-day replica of the original Elizabethan Globe Playhouse, hastily constructed in 1599 by a seminal company of actors, which included in its number the world’s greatest dramatist, William Shakespeare.
The magnificent Lyceum Theatre, with its iconic grand pillared portico, dominates the bottom of Wellington Street in London’s vibrant Covent Garden. Playing a prominent part in London’s rich theatrical history, it has hosted a dazzling array of spectacles and performances from its first incarnation as an exhibition space, to its current standing as a theatre of outstanding national importance.
