The London Palladium
In the 1880′s the land where the current theatre is was home to Hengler’s Circus. The current theatre was constructed in 1910 and presented variety. It was at first called The Palladium before changing to the now popular The London Palladium in 1934. In 1931 the London Palladium saw the emergence of a group of comedians who formed what was to be known as the Crazy Gang who performed at the theatre from June 1931 to October 1939.
The London Palladium became familiar millions of people in the UK in the 1950′s with the weekly television variety show Sunday Night at The London Palladium. This format was revived in the late 1980′s with the popular Live From The Palladium.
From the 1980s in particular the London Palladium become associated with large scale musicals including: The King and I with Yul Brynner and Virginia McKenna, Barnum with Michael Crawford, Singin’ in the Rain with Tommy Steele, Ziegfeld with Topol, La Cage Aux Follies with George Hearn and Denis Quilley, the Opera North/Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Show Boat, Oliver! with Jonathan Pryce and Michael Ball in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
