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.

We were really lucky as we got tickets from one of the box offices at the tube station about 30 minuets before the show started at a very good price of around £30. So a 15 minuet walk there, armed with a map and we were ready for the show.

The show is fantastic - really well written and produces with lots of laughs regardless of the grim story line. It also has a great cast including Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball.

On site at the Adelphi Theatre there are toilets, souveniers and a bar for drinks.

This is where musicals are so personal, friends had been and loved it, listening to people leave the theatre they'd enjoyed it but our party of 4 none of us enjoyed it. I was bored.... The dancing was good, the acting was good but I just found the storyline to slow and the music didnt do much for me.

Having seen many broadway musicals, I was skeptical about seeing this new show...Wow! What a wonderful adaptation of the movie. It was a fabulous production with excellent vocalists... Heather Healy is truly outstanding in the lead role...the finale is the best part of the show...everyone up singing along with the cast..try to get tickets early...don't miss this great show
