Fodor's Review

In 2015 Matthew Warchus, the director behind Matilda the Musical, took over as artistic director at this grand old theater, the former haunting grounds of such stage legends as John Gielgud, Vivien Leigh, Peter O'Toole, Richard Burton, and Judi Dench. The venue had suffered decades of financial duress before being brought under the ownership of a dedicated trust headed by its previous artistic director, the actor Kevin Spacey. It's now in great shape, secure for the future and producing some of the best theater in London.
