The Prince Edward Theatre opened in 1930 as a multi-purpose theatre able to show musicals, revue and films. The theatre then reopened as The London Casino on 2nd April 1936 after being converted into a cabaret restaurant, which became particularly noted for its lavish stage shows. During the Second World War it became a club for servicemen called The Queensbury All Services Club. In 1946 musicals and revues briefly returned. In 1954 the theatre was converted to screen with the new Cinerama film spectaculars.
In 1978 the musical Evita started a run of nearly eight years and the theatre reverted to its original name The Prince Edward Theatre.
Other musicals at the theatre have included Chess and the Broadway revival production of Cole Porter’s Anything Goes which was then followed by three short-lived musicals including Some Like It Hot, Children of Eden and The Hunting of the Snark. From late 1992 to early 1993 the theatre was completely refurbished, reopening on 18th February 1993 with the Broadway production of the Gershwin musical Crazy For You.
