The Comedy Theatre

Perhaps a little lost in the side streets between Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square, the Comedy Theatre is situated in Panton Street. First opening its doors in 1881 and going under the name of the Royal Comedy Theatre, with comic opera being performed. Changing its name to The New Watergate Club in 1956 and charging a small club subscription fee the theatre was able to beat the censorship laws, and when licensing laws were relaxed the theatre became The Comedy Theatre.
