Aldwych Theatre London

The Aldwych was built as a pair with the then Waldorf Theatre (Novello) both being designed by W.G.R. Sprague. Funded by Seymour Hicks, in association with the American impresario Charles Frohman, and built by Walter Wallis of Balham, the ornate decorations were in the Georgian style. The theatre was constructed on the newly built Aldwych.

The Aldwych Theatre was inaugurated on December 23, 1905, with the staging of Blue Bell, a new adaptation of Hicks’ famous pantomime Bluebell in Fairyland. The following year, Hicks’ The Beauty of Bath was performed, followed by The Gay Gordons in 1907. In February 1913, Serge Diaghilev and Vaslav Nijinsky used the theatre for the first rehearsals of Le Sacre du Printemps before its controversial premiere in Paris later that year.

In 1920, Basil Rathbone played Major Wharton in The Unknown. From 1925 to 1933, The Aldwych Theatre was home to Ben Travers’s farces, also known as The Aldwych Farces. Ralph Lynn, Tom Walls, Yvonne Arnaud, Norma Varden, Mary Brough, Winifred Shotter, and Robertson Hare were among the members of Travers’s company. In 1933, Richard Tauber presented and starred in a new version of Das Dreimäderlhaus at the Aldwych, titled Lilac Time. From the mid-1930s until around 1960, the theatre was owned by the Abrahams family.
