Originally named the Whitehall Theatre and standing on the site of a famous 1600s tavern, Ye Old Ship, the Trafalgar Studios was designed by the prolific superstar architect Edward A. Stone, with sumptuous Art Deco interiors by Marc-Henri and Laverdet. 1969 saw a scandalous naked revue at the venue, Pyjama Tops, which stuck fast for five years and thrilled thousands. When it ended, the theatre closed down. It didn’t re-open until 1986, when it staged a revival of J. B. Priestley's well-loved play, When We Are Married. The Importance of Being Earnest, The Foreigner and Run For Your Wife helped consolidate the venue’s excellent reputation. A brief hiatus between 1997 and ’99 saw the building transformed into a TV and radio studio, but it soon rose phoenix like to showcase hits like Sweeney Todd, The Old Country and Bent. The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in 1996 and remains one of the prettiest in town. Buy your Trafalgar Studios tickets here to enjoy excellent choice and availability!
