History

The Wyndham’s Theatre was opened by the well known actor/manager Charles Wyndham in 1899, with its debut production a revival of T.W Robertson’s David Garrick.

The Wyndham’s has always been known for presenting high quality plays, and dramatic texts have dominated the theatrical bill for over 100 years.

Early productions include Mrs Dane’s Defence (1900) and Little Mary (1903). In run up to the outbreak of World War One the theatre presented the anonymously written An Englishman’s Home, a patriotic play that bordered on pro enlisting propaganda.

The Wyndham’s was highly active throughout World War One, with productions such as Raffles (1914), Dear Brutus (1917) and The Choice (1919) entertaining audiences despite the political tension in the city.

Crime writer, Edgar Wallace, brought his dramas to the Wyndham’s in a season that was the talk of the town in the 1930s. Following productions of The Ringer and The Calendar, Wallace had intended a further six shows for the Wyndham’s until plans were scuppered by his untimely death in 1932.

1936 saw a successful production of Mademoiselle at the theatre, directed by Noël Coward, however the Wyndham’s was forced to shut in 1939 for a small amount of time during the outbreak of World War Two. Luckily the theatre channeled the spirit of the British and reopened shortly after to present Diversion, a revue designed to make audiences forget their blitz blues.

One of the theatres biggest successes was a revival of Sandy Wilson’s 1920’s musical, The Boyfriend, which ran at the theatre for over five years.

The 1970’s started with a bang as Godspell (1972) became a roaring success, running for two and a half years at the theatre.

In 2002 Madonna made her West End debut at the Wyndham’s in the sell out Up For Grabs. Since then the theatre has continued to host its typical line up of short running plays with stand out productions including The History Boys (2006), Much Ado About Nothing starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate and Quatermaine’s Terms starring Rowan Atkinson.

In 2012 the theatre hosted notorious flop, The King’s Speech, which survived for less than two months before closing early in May 2012.

Despite being known for its (usually) high calibre plays, the Wyndham’s has also been home to some of the UK’s most loved musicals including Avenue Q (2010) and Dreamboats and Petticoats (2012).

2013  saw productions of Relatively Speaking, and Clive Exton’s Barking in Essex.

Irish ghost story, The Weir, opened in January 2014 and was followed by a sell out run of Skylight starring Carey Mulligan and Bill Nighy. Almeida Theatre transfer, King Charles III followed Skylight's limited run.

2015 has seen productions of A View From The Bridge and American Buffalo, The Mentalists and The Father.
