History

The Wyndham’s Theatre is one of the most famous in the West End, being renowned as very much the actor’s theatre.

Named after Charles Wyndham, who owned it, paid for the construction and starred in its shows, Wyndham’s Theatre originally opened in 1899. Wyndham had always dreamed of building a theatre of his own, an ambition realised when the venue opened its doors for the first time in the presence of the Prince of Wales. The theatre has since gone on to host many of the UK’s most celebrated actors: Dame Judi Dench, Jude Law and Derek Jacobi to name but a few. The theatre was designed by the architect W G R Sprague in the Louis XVI style.

The venue is one of two opened by Wyndham, the other being the Criterion Theatre. It was originally designed to seat 759 visitors over three levels, with a fourth added in later refurbishment. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in September 1960.

Famous productions which have taken place at the venue include Godspell in the 1970s, starring David Essex and Jeremy Irons, and Up For Grabs in 2002, which saw the one and only Madonna make her West End debut in a sell-out production. In May 2005, the theatre was purchased by Cameron Mackintosh’s Delfont-Mackintosh Ltd.

The Wyndham’s Theatre is located right next to Leicester Square Underground Station, in the very heart of London’s Theatreland, meaning you easily can get home in time after the show for the news and a cuppa’.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
