Formerly known as The Queen’s, the Sondheim Theatre opened in 1907 and its ornate, Edwardian auditorium is one of the finest examples in London’s Theatreland. It was originally designed as a pair of theatres (along with the adjacent Gielgud) by theatre architect WGR Sprague. It suffered a direct hit during World War II but was rebuilt with the designers managing to retain the stunning interior.
Since April 2004, the theatre has hosted arguably the most famous musical production of all time, Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Misérables. It played for 18 years at the Palace Theatre before transferring here and remains as hot a ticket in London as it’s possible to get!
