The Wyndham’s Theatre was built in 1899. A memorable moment in its history was when Tallulah Bankhead made her stage debut, in The Dancers in 1923. Other notable productions include The Boy Friend in 1954 and Godspell in 1972, which included David Essex, Marti Webb and Jeremy Irons in its original cast. Latterly, the theatre has presented mostly short runs of dramatic plays.
The building has 3 licensed bars and air conditioning. Its capacity is 759 over 4 levels. It’s one of the most comfortable auditoriums in London with great views from most seats, apart from the end seats of each row in the Upper Circle, which have a very slightly sidelined view.
Disabled access to the building is through the side entrance on Charing Cross Road. There are 2 spaces for wheelchair users in Box A. The auditorium is fitted with an infra-red sound amplification system with 20 headsets for the hard of hearing. The theatre does not have an adapted toilet, but patrons can use the disabled toilets at the Noel Coward theatre, which is behind the Wyndham’s.
The nearest tube station is Leicester Square, which is right next to the theatre. For car drivers, the nearest places to park are the Westminster City Council car park at Cambridge Circus or the NCP at Bedfordbury and Upper St Martin’s Lane.
