THE LYCEUM THEATRE Guide


Situated on Wellington Street, the City of Westminster, The Lyceum Theatre has actually been in existence since 1765, though the present building was built in 1834. One of its most notable claims to fame is that it hosted the premier British performance of Mozart's 'Marriage of Figaro'. It was also the place in which the celebrated actor of the 18th Century, David Garrick made many performances.

During the late Victorian period, Henry Irving was the most famous actor there, performing many of the great Shakespearean roles to critical and public acclaim. Prior to World War II it was earmarked for demolition, but when the plans fell through it was converted to a ballroom and concert venue. A period of restoration in the late 1990s meant that it is now able to seat as many as 2,000 theatre goers and has become a venue that plays host to large scale musicals such as The Lion King.

The full address is 21 Wellington Street, London, WC2E 7RQ.
