History

The Prince Edward Theatre, which was briefly and confusingly known as The Prince of Wales Theatre, opened its fabulous Art Deco doors in April 1930 with energetic musical, Rio Rita.

Despite regular revue shows in its opening years, the theatre was not a commercial success until it revamped itself and reopened as a Casino in 1936. The Casino included sumptuous entertainment shows such as Folies Parisiennes which were hugely popular with gamblers and visitors alike.

Sadly the Prince of Wales Theatre was hit badly during London’s worst air raid attack in World War II, forcing the theatre to close for a year.

In 1942 the venue was partially used as a club for service men, sometimes broadcasting shows to the nation via the BBC. Following this the theatre was then restored to its former casino glory in 1954, only this time it also incorporated a cinema.

The Prince Edward got back on its theatrical tracks in 1978 when it reopened after an extensive revamp with the world premier of the smash hit musical, Evita. Evita, starring Elaine Paige and David Essex, ran for 8 years at the theatre.

Evita was followed by Chess (1986) and Anything Goes (1989) which also starred Elaine Page who at this point had become part of the Prince Edward Theatre furnishings!

The 1990’s saw productions of Children of Eden (1991), Some Like It Hot (1992), Crazy For You (1993), Martin Guerre (1996), Show Boat (1998) and West Side Story (1998).

Mamma Mia! made its West End debut at the Prince Edward in 1999 and ran at the venue until 2004 before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre. This was followed by a successful production of Mary Poppins which ran for just over three years from 2004.

Jersey Boys opened at the Prince Edward to critical acclaim in 2008 where it will ran until Spring 2014, after which it continued its run at the Piccadilly.

in 2014, The Prince Edward Theatre became home to the West End revival of Miss Saigon, which first opened at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 1989. The show runs until the end of February 2016.

Aladdin the musical is due for arrival at the Prince Edward Theatre in 2016.
