The Palace Theatre is situated in Soho, the heart of London’s West End just off Shaftesbury Avenue. The Palace theatre has a seating capacity of 1,480.
It is close to Chinatown and Covent Garden with numerous bars and restaurants in the surrounding streets.
Originally built by impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte as The Royal English Opera House in 1891, it was soon renamed as the Palace Theatre of Varieties – a film and revue venue. In 1904 it was renamed the Palace theatre and eight years later was the venue for the first Royal Variety Performance.
The theatre became a popular house for musicals, including the original London productions of The Sound of Music in 1961 and Jesus Christ Superstar, which played at the Palace for eight years from 1972.
Les Misérables opened in 1985 and became the longest running show in the theatre’s history with 7,602 performances before transferring to the Queen’s Theatre in 2004. More recently the Palace Theatre has staged Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s musical, The Woman in White, Monty Python’s Spamalot the musical and adaptations of Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Singin’ In The Rain.
