Palace Theatre

The Palace Theatre in Cambridge Circus is one of London's most popular theatre venues and a landmark of the West End of London.

The brick and terracotta, 1,400 seat Palace Theatre was built on the west side of Cambridge Circus in 1891 originally to stage opera performances. Now the Palace Theatre is home to many successful musicals which began to be staged here from the 1920's onwards.

Famous musicals with long runs at the Palace Theatre include the Sound of Music, Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Misérables, Monty Python's Spamalot and most recently The Commitments.

The Palace Theatre was owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber from 1983 until 2012, when he sold the building to Nimax Theatres.
