The lovely Queen's Theatre opened in late 1907, around a year after its handsome twin, the Gielgud Theatre. W.G.R. Sprague was the designer and this is just one of many theatres he designed in the city. It got off to a rocky start with a run of unpopular shows until it found its feet as a venue for Tango Tea Dances, which were hugely popular. A year later it scored its first proper stage hit with
Potash and Perlmutter and the place has never looked back. The Lady in the Van, starring the wonderful Maggie Smith, caused a stir as did Contact, the dance spectacular, and a season by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Cameron Mackintosh's musical phenomenon Les Miserables transferred from the Palace Theatre in 2004, its home for 18 years and almost 8000 performances, and his company Delfont Mackintosh Theatres Limited took over in 1999. Since then Les Mis has dominated the scene at this popular venue and it has also been beautifully refurbished. Why not treat yourself to Queen’s Theatre tickets with us?
