The Piccadilly Theatre is the beating heart of Piccadilly. The venue is set on Denman Street, just behind Piccadilly Circus, in the heart of London’s West End. Since its grand opening in 1928, when it was one of the largest theatres to ever be built in the city, this place has played a big part of London’s history.
In its early days, Piccadilly Theatre, which has a seating capacity of 1,232, was used as a cinema – premiering the first talking picture to be shown in Great Britain, The Singing Fool. This place has also seen the likes of The Beatles performing on stage, before an expansion into musicals, ballet and dance.
This huge theatre has played host to many big name faces – including Judi Dench, Michael Pennington, Julia MacKenzie and Eric Sykes – and the award-winning Jersey Boys is currently playing at the venue.
