The Vaudeville Theatre was built in 1870. In its first year it had a great success with Henry Irving starring in Two Roses. Other memorable productions were HJ Byron’s Our Boys in 1875 and Peter Pan author JM Barrie’s Quality Street in 1901. More recently, it has put on a mixture of plays, such as Shirley Valentine in 1988, and music-based productions like Stomp, which ran from 2002-2007.
The theatre is air conditioned and has a capacity of 690. It is arranged on 3 levels. The back 4 rows of the Stalls and the back 2 rows of the Dress Circle have slightly restricted views due to the overhang from the tiers above.
Disabled access to the building is a bit difficult. There is a step of 5 cm leading into the building and there are steps to all levels inside. Wheelchair users who stay in their chairs can use the AAT Major stair-climber to reach the Stalls, where spaces can be created. To use this, you should arrive 45 minutes before the performance.
The nearest tube stations are Charing Cross (200m) and Embankment (300m). Car drivers should head to the Westminster City Council car park at Spring Gardens or the NCP at Drury Lane.
