Charing Cross Theatre, London

#202 of 1,205 in Nightlife in London
The Charing Cross Theatre is a theatre under The Arches off Villiers Street below Charing Cross station. Founded in 1936, the venue occupied several premises in the West End of London before locating to its present site. The current site was once a famous Victorian music hall The Players' Theatre. It was refurbished in 2005 and reopened under new management in 2006 as The New Players Theatre, before being taken under new management by Broadway producer Steven M. Levy and Sean Sweeney in 2011 and the theatre once again had its name changed to the Charing Cross Theatre, with the Players Bar & Kitchen.

It is one of the smallest West End Theatres, rebuilt to meet the demands of national and international producers wanting a theatre which offers a degree of intimacy and is the equivalent of an Off Broadway space.

With the appointment of Thom Southerland as Artistic Director in 2016, Charing Cross Theatre announced it was turning into a producing house launching with a number of major musicals.

  • The layout and feel of this theatre has been completely changed as the stage is now in the centre and revolving. Really feels immersive. Saw Violet which I would highly recommend
  • Very cool, intimate venue allowing everyone feel very close to the actors. We sat on the balcony right overlooking the stage and although a different.angle, did not detract from the enjoyment at all. Also, had we known, we would have eaten dinner before the show as there is an extension to the theatre bar that serves food
