The Noel Coward Theatre London
First named the New Theatre, and shortly after The Albery, The Noel Coward Theatre was constructed by Sir Charles and Mary Wyndham and had its opening night on 12th March 1903.
In 1915 Dion Boucicault presented a Christmas revival of J M Barrie’s Peter Pan, which was then repeated every year until 1919. It also staged a number of successful productions by other distinguished writers such as Somerset Maugham, A A Milne, Noel Coward, Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, T S Eliot and Tennessee Williams.
The sixties were ruled by Lionel Bart’s Oliver! which ran for an incredible 2618 performances.
A host of famous names have appeared on stage at the theatre including Sir Laurence Olivier, Sir John Gielgud, Sybil Thorndike, and Peggy Ashcroft. In 1973 the New Theatre was renamed the Albery in tribute to Sir Bronson Albery who had presided over the theatre, for many years. The Noel Coward Theatre has seen many diverse productions such as Somerset Maugham’s The Constant Wife, Children of a Lesser God by Mark Medoff, Tom Stoppard’s Travesties and of course Willy Russell’s Blood Brothers.

The idea of Bob Dylan’s songbook landing on a playwright’s mat, along with the invitation to use whichever of the numbers he fancies for the making of a stage musical, sounds like the plotline for a dare-to-dream show. Yet this is just what fell into the life of the now seasoned Dublin dramatist Conor McPherson, whose play The Weir established him as an author of daring and narrative confidence just over twenty years ago. The result, freshly transferred to the Noel Coward Theatre after a … [Read more...]

For anyone with even a passing interest in politics, watching the ups and downs of the Labour Party makes an interesting hobby. From the party’s funding in 1918 to today, Labour supporters have ridden a veritable roller coaster of emotions as the party has lurched to the left, hit the centre, virtually torn itself apart, gone to the right and then made a sharp left once more. However, Labour does seem to have two basic types of members. The proud uncompromising working classes who would like a … [Read more...]
So what do you need for a good magic show? You want to be amazed, you want to be gob-smacked and you want to come away saying: well HTF did they do that? Impossible ticks all those boxes - in spades, if you’ll excuse the deliberate pun. Magical Bones is the card-sharp in this crew and whilst he is truly magical I’m really not sure he’s got any bones after he did a mid-air 360º back-flip amongst the pack of cards that he had spray-chucked in the air, somehow retrieving the one that had been … [Read more...]
