The St. Martin’s Theatre was designed by the well-known theatre architect W.G.R.Sprague. Originally intended to be one of a pair with the adjacent Ambassadors Theatre which opened in 1913, the opening of the St Martin’s Theatre opening was delayed by the outbreak of the First World War, and the first performance, of Houpla, occurred in 1916.
In the years since its opening the St Martin’s has staged many plays including many by Noel Coward. The most successful play was the then record-breaking thriller Sleuth.
The Mousetrap transferred to the St Martin’s in March 1974. The play is the world’s longest running play and continues to enthral audiences at the St. Martin’s Theatre to this day.
Following extensive interior refurbishment over the last few years the St Martin’s has recently undergone a major exterior refurbishment, restoring it to its former glory. A replica of the original 1916 canopy was constructed and put in place in February 1998.
The St. Martin’s Theatre is one of the few West End theatres that is still privately owned by the same family, the Willoughby de Broke family, whose crest still adorns the theatre.
