The Phoenix Theatre is located on London’s Charing Cross Road, close to the Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road underground stations.
Built of the site of a music hall named the Alcazar, the theatre opened on September 24th 1930 to a production of Noel Coward’s Private Lives, which interestingly starred Coward himself, alongside a young Laurence Olivier and Gertrude Lawrence.
The following years, however, proved to be a difficult time in the theatre’s history, with a string of unsuccessful productions which forced it to change direction and house Variety Theatre. Unfortunately, this didn’t bring the success that many had hoped for.
The Phoenix’s luck changed when Noel Coward returned in 1936 with Tonight At 8:30, a series of one-act plays which became a hit with the West End crowd. Coward’s alliance with the theatre continued, when his romantic comedy Quadrille played at the Phoenix. In 1969, the main bar in the theatre’s foyer was renamed the Noel Coward Bar, and the theatre even observed his 70th Birthday in a series of special celebrations.
The most recent long-running production at the Phoenix theatre was Blood Brothers, which closed in 2012. Willy Russell’s tale, loosely based on Alexandre Dumas’ novella The Corsican Brothers, debuted in 1983 and was revived in 1988 to make it one of the longest running musicals in the West End.
