The Fortune Theatre is one of the most unique and historical theatres in London. Located in the West End of the city, it was built in 1600 and is one of the oldest surviving Elizabethan theatres in the city. The theatre has a capacity of 432 seats and is situated in Russell Street, Covent Garden.
The Fortune Theatre was originally known as The Fortune Playhouse, and it was built by the actor and entrepreneur Edward Alleyn. The theatre was designed by the famous architect, Peter Street, and was opened to the public in 1600. The Fortune was one of the first theatres in London to have a permanent stage, and it was also one of the first to be designed specifically for playing plays.
Over the years, the Fortune Theatre has seen many changes and renovations. In 1623, the theatre was demolished and then rebuilt in 1624. In the 1700s, the theatre was converted into a warehouse, and it was not until the 1920s that it was restored to its former glory.
Today, the Fortune Theatre is known for its unique charm and its commitment to presenting high-quality plays and musicals. The theatre has been home to a number of successful productions, including the award-winning play, The Woman in Black, which recently closed, had been running at the theatre since 1989.
The Fortune Theatre is a true treasure of London's theatrical history, and it continues to be an important venue for the performing arts in the city. Its intimate setting and rich history make it a popular choice for theatre-goers and history enthusiasts alike. If you're looking for a truly unique theatrical experience, a visit to the Fortune Theatre is definitely worth considering.
