The Palace Theatre London: Opened in 1891 as the Royal English Opera House, grand opera flopped here and the theatre was re-opened as the Palace, a music hall, two years later on 10th December 1892. During the late 1950′s the interior marble work was painted over but thankfully during the last half of the 1980s, the theatre was extensively restored to its former glory without closing the theatre.
The interior painting was removed to once again reveal the marble and onyx, while on the exterior the huge illuminated billboards, advertising productions at the theatre, have been removed to provide a clear view of the building which has a prominent position on Cambridge Circus at the Junction of Shaftesbury Avenue with Charing Cross Road.
Since the mid-1920s, the Palace has been predominantly home to musicals which have included, in 1925 No No Nanette! running for 655 performances, Song of Norway in 1946, in 1949 839 performances of King’s Rhapsody, The Sound of Music in 1961 running for 2385 performances, Cabaret in 1968, and 1972 Jesus Christ Superstar which had a run of 3358 performances. Les Miserables originally opened at the Barbican on 8th October 1985 before transferring to the Palace Theatre on 4th December 1985. Les Miserables became the Palace Theatre’s longest-running show on 10th January, 1994.
