The Duke of York's Theatre London West End Tickets
Built for Frank Wyatt and his wife Violet Melnotte, The Duke of York’s Theatre opened on 10th September, 1892 with Wedding Eve. First named Trafalgar Square Theatre, and subsequently shortened to Trafalgar Theatre, and then the following year to The Duke of York’s Theatre to honour the future King George V.
In 1900, Jerome K Jerome’s Miss Hobbs and David Belasco’s Madame Butterfly were staged, which was seen by Puccini, who later turned it into the well-known opera of the same name.
In the late 1970s, the theatre was purchased by Capital Radio and it closed in 1979 for refurbishment. Opening in February 1980 with the first production under Capital Radio being Rose, starring Glenda Jackson.
The Ambassador Theatre Group bought the theatre in 1992 coinciding with London’s hottest show, The Royal Court’s production of Ariel Dorfman’s Death and the Maiden. A number of successful productions followed including Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show – which celebrated its 21st Birthday in the hugely successful Royal Court Classics Season in 1995.
The Duke of York’s played host to the Royal Court and the highly acclaimed co-production of The Weir, running for over 2 years and winning the 1999 Olivier Award for Best New Play. It has also had the sell-out run of Stones In His Pockets, which was the winner of the 2001 Olivier awards for Best Comedy and Best Comedy Actor.
