Harold Pinter Theatre London Shows & Tickets
Opening on 15th October 1881 this Victorian theatre only took six months to build, and was at first called the Royal Comedy Theatre, with the The Royal being dropped by 1884.
The theatre’s reputation was enhanced during the First World War when C B Cochran and André Charlot presented their review shows.
Significant reconstruction took place in the mid-1950′s with the theatre reopening on 14th December, 1955. One feature of this theatre is the use of columns to support the circle seating areas, which means that a number of the seats have a somewhat restricted view. The Comedy was possibly best known for the role it played in the late 1950′s, helping to overturn stage censorship.
More recent productions include the award winning comedy Steaming, and the fabulous award winning musical Little Shop of Horrors making its West End debut in 1979, both of which played at The Comedy in the early 1980s.
The Comedy was renamed the Harold Pinter Theatre in 2011 after Harold Pinter CH, CBE Playwright, screenwriter, actor, theatre director and poet.
