The Theatre Royal is well known and loved for bringing entertainment to the masses and has a long and illustrious history dating way back to 1663. Every monarch since the Restoration has paid the venue a visit and it features two royal boxes. Earlier buildings on the site were managed by the legendary actor David Garrick and the playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan. The building you see today dates back to 1812 and was home to a series of splendid Victorian melodramas and pantomimes, followed by excellent musicals. Ivor Novello’s operettas played there to rave reviews, as did Rodgers and Hammersteins’ masterpieces. My Fair Lady was the longest running show here for many years, a record only recently broken by Miss Saigon, which has played here for a decade. While the auditorium was reconstructed in 1922 and there are seats for an impressive 2,200 seats over four tiers. Walk this way for the best selection of Theatre Royal Drury Lane tickets in town!
