History

Originally built in 1930, the Prince Edward Theatre opened with a performance of the energetic musical Rio Rita. As early as 1935, the theatre was converted into a cabaret hall and renamed the London Casino. The venue continued in this guise until it was damaged during World War II.

1942 saw the venue become the Queensberry All Services Club, where shows would be broadcast for the BBC. Following this, the building was reverted back to a casino in 1954, including a Cinerama. Films shown included the premieres of Search for Paradise (1961) and How the West Was Won (1962). In 1969, the venue premiered Ben-Hur, which continued until 1970.

In 1978, the venue reopened as the Prince Edward Theatre, with the world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Evita, starring Elaine Paige and David Essex. Evita ran for eight years before being replaced with Tim Rice musical Chess, which also starred Elaine Paige.

Elaine Paige also took to the stage in Anything Goes (1989-1990), with subsequent productions at the venue including Children of Eden (1991), The Hunting of the Snark (1991), Some Like It Hot (1992), starring Tommy Steele, Crazy for You (1993-1996), starring Ruthie Henshall, and Martin Guerre (1996-1998). Further productions included Show Boat (1998) and West Side Story (1998-1999).

Mamma Mia! received its West End debut at the Prince Edward Theatre, opening in 1999 and continuing until 2004, before transferring to the Prince of Wales Theatre. This was followed by Mary Poppins (2004-2008) and the West End premiere of Broadway’s Jersey Boys, which ran from 2008 to 2014, before transferring to the Piccadilly Theatre.

In 2014, the Prince Edward Theatre became the home of Cameron Mackintosh’s revival of Miss Saigon, starring newcomer Eva Noblezada. The show continued until 2016, when Broadway’s glittering musical Aladdin made its way into the theatre.

Aladdin - Disney's New Musical played at the theatre until June 2019, where it was followed by the return of Disney's Mary Poppins in the autumn. Zizi Strallen and Charlie Stemp star as Mary and Bert.

Mary Poppins closed in London in 2023, and hit Broadway jukebox musical Ain't Too Proud, about the life and careers of Motown group The Temptations, made its West End debut at the Prince Edward Theatre in March 2023.

In October 2023, James Graham's acclaimed new play Dear England transfers from the National Theatre, starring Joseph Fiennes as England football manager Gareth Southgate.

In 2024, Tony Award-winning musical MJ - celebrating the creative mind of Michael Jackson during his Dangerous World Tour - opens at the theatre, after wowing audiences on Broadway.
