Shows At This Venue

Theatre Royal Drury Lane is a large West End theatre that has played host to a number of large scale musicals.

The theatre was renowned for its spectacular Victorian melodramas and pantomimes but since the 1920s its history has mirrored the development of the modern musical. From the original London productions of American musicals Rose Marie, The Desert Song and Show Boat, through Ivor Novello’s romantic operettas and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s groundbreaking post-war shows to The Producers and The Lord of the Rings. My Fair Lady held the record as the theatre’s longest run for many years but Cameron Mackintosh’s record breaking production of Miss Saigon, at ten years, is the current record holder. After Shrek the Musical followed the family spectacular Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory directed by Sam Mendes.

During productions there are regular daily tours of the Theatre Royal Drury Lane.

The theatre is currently playing host to 42nd Street.
