Lyceum Theatre

Lyceum Theatre Wellington Street, WC2
Tel: (0) 870 606 3446
Covent Garden

Destroyed by fire in 1809 and again in 1830, demolished in 1902 and reopened in 1904 as a music hall and later a venue for variety shows, musicals and ballet, The Lyceum Theatre is a London landmark. Managed to fashionability by Sir Henry Irving (1875 - 1902), the first actor ever to be knighted, with his business manager Bram Stoker, author of "Dracula," the Lyceum was known for Victorian melodramas and lavish Shakespearean productions. Converted to a dance hall after World War II, the theatre was closed until Apollo Leisure refurbished and reopened it in 1996, with a production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Jesus Christ, Superstar."
