Garrick Theatre



Garrick Theatre

The Garrick Theatre in London's West End was financed in 1889 by the playwright W. S. Gilbert, the author of over 75 plays, including the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas. It was designed by Walter Emden, with C. J. Phipps brought in as a consultant to help with the planning on the difficult site, which included an underground river. The gold leaf auditorium was restored in 1986 by the stage designer Carl Toms, and in 1997 the front façade was renovated. The theatre has mostly been associated with comedies or comedy-dramas. 


Bars are available on all levels of the theatre and access spaces are located in the Dress Circle. No video cameras or recording devices allowed.
