The mystery is why such an obviously - and literally - theatrical piece such as Mrs Henderson Presents has taken so long (ten years) to get from movie to West End musical. Mrs Laura Henderson is the 70-year-old wealthy widow who, knowing nothing whatever about theatre, took over the ailing Windmill Theatre in the 1930s and placed it firmly on the map by presenting, uniquely, all-nude tableaux vivants featuring lovely young naked women posing motionless on stage in the manner of great works of … [Read more...]

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.

On the 19th December 1843 an author - once popular but with a waning reputation - published a novella about a grumpy old man that hated the world. In the intervening 172 years, the book has never been out of print and has been made into numerous films, television programmes and stage shows. The writer was Charles Dickens and the book was, of course, A Christmas Carol and the latest stage version is currently running at the Noel Coward Theatre in London’s West End. On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer … [Read more...]

Having been brought up on Paul Daniels and David Copperfield, I eagerly awaited my first live magic experience. Taken on an incredulous journey 'now I'm a believer'! A line up of magicians from every genre gather on the same stage, introduce themselves in a cheesy 'Vegas' style, teasing what all their individual talents entail. Using the premise of showing a young boy what magic is really about the collective take turns to show us their skills. Danger, excitement, humour … [Read more...]
