About Aldwych Theatre
The theatre was built as a pair with the Waldorf Theatre now known as the Novello Theatre, both being designed by W.G.R. Sprague. Funded by Seymour Hicks, in association with the American impresario Charles Frohman, and built by Walter Wallis of Balham.
The ornate decorations were in the Georgian style.
The theatre was constructed in the newly built Aldwych and opened in 1905. The theatre was listed Grade II on 20 July 1971.
Its seating capacity is 1,200 on three levels, a fairly large auditorium.
The Aldwych Theatre is currently closed and undergoing a multi-million-pound restoration and refurbishment programme to return the theatre to its original 1905 grandeur.
The Aldwych Theatre is committed to making the experience of all patrons as easy and enjoyable as possible.
