Charing Cross Theatre
There's been a theatre under the arches at Charing Cross Station since the 1860s. But, the Charing Cross Theatre that audiences can visit today opened in January 2011. Typically, the Charing Cross Theatre is home to London premieres, as well as small-scale musicals running for limited engagements.
The Charing Cross Theatre hasn't always been named after its central London location. During the years, it's been called Gattis-in-The Arches, The Players Theatre and the New Players Theatre. In the early 2000s, the theatre was a Victorian musical hall, honoring the type of production staged over a century ago. Today, it's called the Charing Cross Theatre, a simple name that reflects it intimate, cosy productions.
Recent productions at Charing Cross Theatre include a London revival of The Woman in White, first seen at the Palace Theatre in 2004. Musicals and plays are both performed at Charing Cross Theatre, with shows like Titanic, Dusty and Phil Wilmott's Lost Boy.
