History

London's Lyric Theatre is Shaftesbury Avenue's oldest surviving theatre, first opening in 1888 with a transfer production of Dorothy. Originally, the venue was intended as a house for operettas, featuring productions such as The Mountebanks (1892) and His Excellency (1894).

During the 20th century, plays and musicals were popular at the venue, with early productions including The Duchess of Dantzic (1903), The Chocolate Soldier (1910), The Girl in the Taxi (1911), The Bird of Paradise (1919), Whirled into Happiness (1922) and The Street Singer (1924).

In the 1930's the venue saw Strange Interlude (1931) and The Royal Family (1934), which starred Laurence Oliver. During the Second World War, the Lyric Theatre went dark, reopening with Terence Rattigan’s The Winslow Boy (1946).

Over the next few years, a range of productions played at the theatre, with notable shows including The Little Hut (1950), which ran for 1,261 performances, South Sea Bubble (1955), Robert and Elizabeth (1964), Alan Ayckbourn's How the Other Half Loves (1972), which ran for 869 performances and hit musical Blood Brothers (1983), which was later revived at the Phoenix Theatre for a long run.

A series of well-known shows followed, including Joe Orton's Loot (1984), Steel Magnolias (1989), Five Guys Named Moe (1990), Ain't Misbehavin' (1995), An Ideal Husband (1998), Brief Encounter (2000), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (2001), The Constant Wife (2002), Beautiful and Damned (2004), Death of a Salesman (2005), Cabaret (2006) and Eddie Izzard Stripped (2008).

In 2009, Michael Jackson musical Thriller Live opened. Days later, Jackson surprisingly passed away, causing the musical to rocket through the roof, becoming a tribute production to one of pop's greatest performers. Thriller Live continues to run to this day, entertaining audiences from around the world.

The Lyric Theatre's 2018 season sees Thriller Live return, alongside further performances of Showstopper! and The Simon & Garfunkel Story. Summer saw We're Going on a Bear Hunt return to the theatre, whilst the winter production for children sees Tall Stories' Room on the Broom Live return.

The venue reopened in December with a socially-distanced production of the hit musical SIX. The theatre was forced to close again later that month and reopened in May 2021, continuing with performances of SIXThe hit musical played a 3-month run at the Lyric Theatre before transferring to its forever home at the nearby Vaudeville Theatre.

BAFTA-winning children's show Operation Ouch! returned to the West End with a brand new show at the theatre in December 2021 for a festive run.

Brand new musical biopic Get Up, Stand Up! The Bob Marley Musical opened at the Lyric Theatre in October 2021, starring Arinzé Kene. It closes in London in January 2023, and shares the Lyric stage with hit YouTube-inspired Blippi the Musical over Christmas 2022.
