Owner description: Although there have been various earlier entertainment buildings on the site the reconstructed Adelphi Theatre, with its art deco interiors, opened to the public in December 1930 with Jessie Matthews starring in Ever Green.The front-of-house areas of the Adelphi Theatre were restored to their original lustre and extravagance in 1993 when Andrew Lloyd Webber became co-owner and opened his musical production of Sunset Boulevard. Other famous productions at the Adelphi Theatre include Gertrude Lawrence in Cole Porter’s Nymph Errant, Ivor Novello’s The Dancing Years, Bless The Bride, Beatrice Lillie as Auntie Mame, Van Johnson in The Music Man, Lionel Bart’s Blitz! and Maggie May, Charlie Girl with Anna Neagle, a revival of Me and My Girl originally starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson and in the Adelphi Theatre’s longest run (over nine years), the new Broadway production of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago. Revivals of Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have proved enormously popular. More recently, the theatre played host to the worldwide premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Love Never Dies.

“Sweeney Todd”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

A great adaption of the original Tony Award winning production Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s musical masterpiece SWEENEY . The music fits the story very well and some of the lyrics are very funny.
Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton were brilliant as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett, the pie lady.

“Michael Ball's bloody night!”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

Michael Ball's performance is outstanding you can hardly recognise him, but Imelda Staunton is fantastic!
This is a great show it's better than the film,but it's a limited run so go and see it if you can get a ticket!
