London Theatre

The Queen's Theatre

Shaftsbury Avenue W.1

The Queen's Theatre was completely destroyed during World War II, except for a few rows at the rear of the building. It was used extensively for rehearsals for a few years afterwards. It re-opened in 1959 with a new façade built on the front in a modern design by Brian Westwood. It has been the home of many successful shows including Anthony Newley’s “Stop the world I want to get off” in 1961. The current show Les Misérables that moved here in 2004 from the nearby Palace Theatre, and is still going strong.
