Although there have been various earlier entertainment buildings on the site the reconstructed Adelphi Theatre, with its art deco interiors, opened to the public in December 1930 with Jessie Matthews starring in Ever Green.The front-of-house areas of the Adelphi Theatre were restored to their original lustre and extravagance in 1993 when Andrew Lloyd Webber became co-owner and opened his musical production of Sunset Boulevard. Other famous productions at the Adelphi Theatre include Gertrude Lawrence in Cole Porter’s Nymph Errant, Ivor Novello’s The Dancing Years, Bless The Bride, Beatrice Lillie as Auntie Mame, Van Johnson in The Music Man, Lionel Bart’s Blitz! and Maggie May, Charlie Girl with Anna Neagle, a revival of Me and My Girl originally starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson and in the Adelphi Theatre’s longest run (over nine years), the new Broadway production of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago. Revivals of Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have proved enormously popular. More recently, the theatre played host to the worldwide premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Love Never Dies.

A truly fantastic show! Great energy throughout, impressive cast and music. Some openly sexual references, so might not be suitable for younger children. Absolutely worth the money!

I saw this musical in NY a few years back, so when I had a chance to get discounted tickets in London and my sister in law hadn't seen it, I was fine with going again. We had seats way up in the upper balcony, but with parts of the set being elevated, the high seats weren't so bad. The... More

Kinki Boots was amazing. Music, set and costumes were amazing. Great fun upbeat musical! Easy to get to - I got off to Leicester Square and it was a five min walk. Would recommend

At the beginning I was skeptical but the show is brilliant, the singing was great. The stage was beautifully created and changed throughout the show. Don't miss it.

Entertaining musical with parts that will send you roaring with laughter. Music and story line were engaging and makes the point it was promoting. That's where the musical failed. It was propaganda to push the point that gays should be accepted by all. That may be a good point to make but it did so by creating caricatures of those... More

We sat down for a matinee performance and I was sceptical, and the opening song was a bit lame, sorry to say. Then Lola arrives with her band of girls and the show takes an amazing turn for the better. The guy playing Lola was so camp but brilliant with it. I have to say this is by far the... More

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
