You’ll find the Prince Edward Theatre on Old Compton Street, a splendid building designed by Edward A. Stone who also had a hand in the beautiful Piccadilly Theatre. Named in honour of the Prince of Wales at the time, it opened in spring 1930. Cinema took over in 1954 with a vast curved screen installed to meet the public’s insatiable demand for movies, but in 1990 salvation came in the form of Bernard Delfont and Cameron Mackintosh, who vowed to rebuild the venue and did so with considerable style and panache, spending more than three million pounds on it to improve the audience experience. March 1993 saw it reopening with the smash hit musical Crazy for You. The venue has been refurbished again since then, improving the bar and front of house facilities. Mamma Mia! Held its premiere here in ’99 and Mary Poppins proved incredibly popular. There’s plenty of room with a huge capacity of 1618 seats – why not join huge audiences every night with our varied choice of Prince Edward Theatre tickets?
