Since opening its doors in 1905 in the heart of London’s West End theater district, the historic Aldwych Theatre has hosted some of the city’s most compelling plays and musicals, including recent hits such as Andrew Lloyd Webber's Whistle Down the Wind, Fame, and Dirty Dancing.
Built in 1905 to the design of architect W.G.R. Sprague, the grand Baroque theatre is now a Grade II listed building, with a 1,200-seat auditorium spread over three levels. The theatre made its mark on London’s West End in the 1960s and 70s, when it became the temporary home of the Royal Shakespeare Company and staged various RSC productions including The Wars of the Roses, The Greeks, and Nicholas Nickleby. Most recently, it’s been the London home of Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.
