Her Majesty's Theatre

Home > Theatres in London > Her Majesty's Theatre

Since 1705 there have been four theatres on the site of Her Majesty’s. The current building was erected by the famous Actor-Manager Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree to house his spectacular productions of Shakespeare and literary adaptations and opened in 1897.

The theatre hosted the original production of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion and Oscar Asche's record breaking Chu Chin Chow. During the rest of the Twentieth Century it was home to many successful musicals including Noel Coward's Bitter Sweet (1929), Brigadoon (1949), Paint Your Wagon (1953), West Side Story (1958), Bye Bye Birdie (1961), Lock Up Your Daughters (1962), Fiddler On The Roof (1967) and the current production of  The Phantom Of The Opera which opened in 1986.

Due to the nature of the auditorium, some seats are classified as 'restricted view' or 'side view'.

Nearest underground station is Piccadilly Circus (Piccadilly and Bakerloo lines).
