The longest-running musical in the West End history is Les Misérables. It overtook Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats, on 8 October 2006. Other long-runners include Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera and Disney’s The Lion King musical at the Lyceum Theatre London. However, the non-musical Agatha Christie play The Mousetrap is the longest-running production in the world and has been performed continuously since 1952.
“Theatreland”, London’s main theatre district, has approximately forty theatre venues and is located in and near the heart of the West End of London. It is traditionally defined by The Strand to the south, Oxford Street to the north, Regent Street to the west, and Kingsway to the east, but a few other nearby London theatres are also considered “West End” despite being outside the area proper (e.g. The Apollo Victoria Theatre, in Westminster).
Top and prominent theatre streets include Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Strand. The works staged are predominantly musicals, classic and modern straight plays, and comedy performances.
