The Novello Theatre is a large West End venue which is usually home to musicals.
The theatre was originally called the Waldorf Theatre and opened in 1905 and was re-named the Strand Theatre in 1913. The theatre took it’s current name in 2005 after a £4.5 million refurbishment to celebrate its centenary. Notable productions at this venue include Rhinoceros starring Laurence Olivier and Maggie Smith, Frankie Howard in A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum and the Broadway production of Cat On A Hot Tin Roof starring Adrian Lester and James Earl Jones.
The theatre is currently home to the Abba musical Mamma Mia!
