History

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.

Early productions in the 21st century included Moira Buffini’s Dinner (2003-2004), Democracy (2004), By the Bog of Cats (2004-2005), The Witches (2005), starring Ruby Wax, Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues (2005), As You Like It (2005), starring Sienna Miller and Heroes (2005-2006).

2006-2009 saw a quick turnover of shows, including Honour, starring Diana Rigg, Sunday in the Park with George, with Jenna Russell, A Voyage Round My Father, starring Derek Jacobi, The History Boys, The Letter, Shadowlands, a revival of The History Boys and The Shawshank Redemption.

J B Priestley’s An Inspector Calls came to the theatre in 2009, followed by the transfer of Avenue Q (2010), Clybourne Park (2011), Much Ado About Nothing (2011), starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, Driving Miss Daisy (2011), starring James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave and two Rat Pack shows.

2012 saw the notorious flop The King’s Speech, followed by Jill Halfpenny in Abigail’s Party (2012), Dreamboats and Petticoats (2012-2013), Quartermaine’s Terms (2013), starring Rowan Atkinson, Relatively Speaking (2013), with Felicity Kendal and Kara Tointon, Barking in Essex (2013-2014) with Lee Evans and Sheila Hancock and The Weir (2014), as well as Uncle Vanya (2014).
