Duchess Theatre London
3-5 Catherine Street, London, WC2B 5LA

Situated on Catherine Street, near the Aldwych and just a stone’s throw away from Covent Garden. The building was designed by Ewen Barr and was opened in November 1929. It seats 494, making it one of the smaller theatres in the West End.

Over the years, the venue has hosted a wide variety of productions, from dramas to musicals. Some of the most notable productions include “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie, which opened at the theatre in 1952 and is still running in London. The theatre has also hosted popular shows such as “Oh! Calcutta!” and “The Play What I Wrote”.

One of the unique features of the venue is its curved facade, which is made of Portland stone. The interior of the theatre is also quite striking, with its Art Deco design and plush red seats. The stage itself is quite small, but it has been used to great effect by many productions over the years.

In recent years, the theatre has undergone some renovations to improve the experience for theatregoers. This has included upgrading the seating and the sound system, as well as installing new lighting and backstage facilities.

The theatre is currently owned by Nimax and continues to be a popular venue for both West End productions and touring shows. Its central location makes it easy to access by public transportation, and there are many restaurants and bars in the area where you can take your seat for pre- or post-theatre drinks and dining.
