Piccadilly Theatre London Tickets for Shows in London West End
The Piccadilly Theatre London
The opening of the theatre was on 27th April 1928 with the musical Blue Eyes, by Jerome Kern and starring Miss Evelyn Laye.
The Piccadilly Theatre was at the time one of the largest theatres to be built in London, as its souvenir brochure of the time proclaimed “If all the bricks used in the building were laid in a straight line, they would stretch from London to Paris”.
In its early days, the Piccadilly operated as a cinema and made history when it premiered the first talking picture to be shown in Britain, which was The Singing Fool with Al Jolson. Jolson also opened the Jazz Singer in 1928, appearing on-stage after the show to sing Mammy.
When the theatre opened it was named The Piccadilly Theatre in a multi-purpose theatre used to house musicals, revue and films, the theatre reopened as The London Casino on 2nd April 1936 having been converted into a cabaret restaurant which became particularly noted for its lavish stage shows. During the Second World War it was used by servicemen under the name The Queensbury All Services Club.
