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.

Being one of those Londoners with as busy a life as the next person, I sometimes struggle to recall what happened a fortnight ago, let alone a 1992 animated motion picture which I only went to see out of a sense of duty, after I had no idea what everyone else was on about at the time. But strenuous efforts have been made by the Disney Theatrical Group to take those who enjoyed Aladdin as a motion picture 24 years ago and now have the disposable income to splash out on a night in the West … [Read more...]

The attention to detail is phenomenal as Thomas Schumacher, President of the Disney Theatrical Group (just one division of the huge Walt Disney Company) explains in an appropriately animated fashion quite what was involved to get Aladdin to the Prince Edward Theatre, where previews for this … [Read more...]
