History

Formerly the Trafalgar Studios and the Whitehall Theatre, Trafalgar Theatre is a contemporary venue that is scheduled to open in Spring 2021. Previously split into two studio spaces, Trafalgar Studios 1 and 2, the venue is being redeveloped into a single, larger theatre space.

Trafalgar Studios 1 opened in 2004 with the RSC’s Othello, and presented a number of successful works for the next decade. The venue truly stepped on the map in 2013 with a season of work by director Jamie Lloyd, Trafalgar Transformed, which saw James McAvoy take on the title role in Macbeth. Lloyd returned to the theatre for a second season in 2015, in which McAvoy returned in The Ruling Class, and Martin Freeman lead a production of Shakespeare's Richard III.

Several Olivier-Award winning productions have played at the Trafalgar Studios 1, including a new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts in 2013 and Robert Icke's reimagining of Aeschylus' Oresteia in 2015. Hollywood star Orlando Bloom appeared in Studio 1 in 2018 in a production of dark comedy Killer Joe.

Trafalgar Studio 2 presented intimate, innovative new works from national and international companies. Studio 2 opened in 2005 with Peter Arnott's Cyprus and went on to showcase other successes, including the Olivier nominated La Boheme, the hit comedy The Play That Goes Wrong, and a season of work from the Donmar Warehouse.

The Trafalgar Theatre opened with the smash-hit jukebox musical Jersey Boys in summer 2021, and it ran until 4 January 2024.

In January 2024, A Mirror starring Jonny Lee Miller and Tanya Reynolds transferred to the Trafalgar Theatre from the Almeida Theatre, followed by a revival of People, Places and Things starring Denise Gough. In the Summer of 2024, The 39 Steps, returned to the West End, playing at the theatre for a limited time. Shortly followed by The Duchess starring Jodie Comer.
