Wyndham’s Theatre was originally designed by W.G.R. Sprague and was managed by actor Charles Wyndham, officially opening in 1899 with a performance of T. W. Robertson’s David Garrick. The venue continued to host dramas, including Mrs Dane’s Defence (1900) and Little Mary (1903).

Throughout the First World War, the theatre remained highly active, showing productions such as Raffles (1914), Dear Brutus (1917) and The Choice (1919). Following this, a successful production of Mademoiselle (1936) played, directed by Noel Coward. In 1939 the theatre was forced to close for the second outbreak of war.

In 1953, the theatre premiered Graham Greene’s The Living Room, followed by Sandy Wilson’s The Boy Friend (1954), which later transferred to Broadway. Subsequent productions included Godspell (1972-1974), Art (1996) and Up for Grabs (2002), starring Madonna.
