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.

What an fantastic voices, choreography, decor and costumes. But most of all it's envolves you so much that you feel all emotions from every character on the stage. Plenty of funny moments beautifully linked with something to think off. From the start of the musical...More

Brilliant for non musical kind of people. Enough of a solid storyline and songs but not toooo many. Loved every sec. Was a birthday treat from my girlies. Just such an uplifting, fun and enjoyable musical. Would recommend to everyone of any age!

It is cheaper by block bookings. You might try and ring the box office and get tickets that people have returned. Matinees, during the week, can offer good deals. Good luck.
