Lyceum Theatre, London West End
The Lyceum Theatre is currently showing Lion King.
Lyceum Theatre is a 2,000-seat West End theatre located in the City of Westminster, on Wellington Street, just off the Strand.
There has been a theatre with this name in the locality since 1765, and the present site opened on July 14, 1834 to a design by Samuel Beazley. The building was unique in that it had a balcony overhanging the circle.
It was built by the partnership of Peto & Grissell.
The present building retains Beazley's fašade and grand portico, but the theatre behind is substantially to the 1904 design of Bertie Crewe, restored to theatrical use in 1996 by Holohan Architects, after a long period of use as a Mecca Ballroom
