Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5DE
The venue is situated in the City of Westminster, near the Embankment and the Charing Cross railway station.
The venue has a seating capacity of just over 780 people, and is known for its intimate and cozy atmosphere. It has hosted a variety of productions over the years, including plays, musicals, and other live performances.
One of the most notable productions to have been staged at the venue is the play “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde. This production premiered in 1895 and has since become a classic of English literature. Other notable productions at the Playhouse include the musical “The Sound of Music,” which ran from 1961 to 1965, and the play “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie, which has been running at the theatre since 1952.
The venue has undergone several renovations over the years to modernize its facilities while maintaining its historic character. In 1905, the theatre was expanded to include a balcony, which increased its seating capacity. The theatre was also refurbished in the 1950s, and more recently in 2010.
Currently, home to Cabaret, the Playhouse Theatre, with its rich history and central location, is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in theatre and the performing arts.
