The Aldwych Theatre was built in 1905 on the newly built road from which it takes its name. Though built as a pair with the Novello Theatre (known as the Waldorf at this time) by the same designer, W. G. R. Sprague, they were funded and managed by different entities, with Seymour Hicks and the American impresario Charles Frohman taking control of the Aldwych. Together they produced several musical comedies in the theatre’s early years, including the opening production Blue Bell, which starred Mr Hicks himself. The Aldwych Theatre is designed in an Edwardian Baroque style.


Located in the Covent Garden area of the West End, The Aldwych Theatre has hosted a mixture of plays, comedies and musical theatre productions since 2000. No video cameras or recording devices allowed. Latecomers will not be admitted until a suitable break within the performance.
