The Sondheim Theatre is a West End theatre located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the City of Westminster, London. It was originally called the Queen’s Theatre and was built in 1907, designed by architect W.G.R. Sprague. The theatre was named after Queen Alexandra, the wife of King Edward VII. The Queen’s Theatre has been the home of many successful productions, including Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, and The Phantom of the Opera.
In 2009, the theatre underwent a major renovation and was renamed the Sondheim Theatre in honor of American composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim. The renovation included updating the seating, improving the sightlines, and adding state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment. The first production in the newly named Sondheim Theatre was the musical “Hair.”
