The Cambridge Theatre opened in 1930. The theatre occupies a triangular site on Seven Dials.

The Cambridge Theatre opened with a production of Masquerade, a revue type show by André Charlot. In 1984, the theatre was renamed "the magic castle of Seven Dials" in the hopes of bringing magic shows to the West End — the scheme ended after a year.

In 1999, the building became part of the Really Useful Group Ltd portfolio of theatres. Andrew Lloyd Webber premiered The Beautiful Game in 2000, with musicals including Chicago and Jerry Springer – The Opera. Matilda opened at the Cambridge Theatre in November 2011.

Cambridge Theatre Seating Information

The auditorium has three levels – Stalls, Royal Circle and Grand Circle.

Stalls seating is not affected by the overhang from the Royal Circle.

The Royal Circle is set far back, and with a shallow rake in the seats the audience seated here may feel detached from the action.

The Grand Circle is steeply raked which offers good sightlines.
