The Vaudeville Theatre is a grand affair on the Strand in the City of Westminster, opened in 1870 but rebuilt twice since then using the skeleton of the earlier buildings as a template and keeping elements of the originals. These include a superb thunder drum and old lightning sheets plus some curious old stage mechanisms. The current building dates back to 1926, designed by the respected theatre-loving architect C J Phipps. In its early days the venue was home to a string of smash hit vaudeville shows and revues but the famously popular 1954 musical Salad Days, with Julian Slade and big screen heroine Deborah Reynolds, caused a splash that’s still remembered today. These days it has room for 690 people and presents a wide range of shows, from comedy to melodrama. Past hits include Blithe Spirit, An Evening with Gary Lineker, The Invisible Man and Portrait of A Queen. Want VaudevilleTheatre tickets? You can buy yours here!
