Wyndham's Theatre London

About the Wyndham's Theatre

Wyndham's Theatre opened in 1899 and was designed by renowned theatre architect W. G. R. Sprague, who also designed the neighbouring Noël Coward Theatre. The theatre was the brainchild of actor and impresario Charles Wyndham, who fulfilled a lifelong dream by building the theatre. The Grade II-listed theatre still retains many of the original Louis XVI style decor, including the resplendent ceiling, which was restored in the 1970s.

The Wyndham's has attracted some of the biggest stars in the world to its stage over the last 100 years, including Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Diana Rigg, Hollywood superstar Sienna Miller and pop icon Madonna, who made her West End debut in Up for Grabs. In 2008 the Donmar Warehouse commenced a year-long residency at the theatre, staging several major revivals of Shakespeare and Chekhov with stars such as Jude Law, Judi Dench and Derek Jacobi.

The Wyndham's is owned by Delfont Mackintosh and recent notable productions include Tom Stoppard's Leopoldstadt, Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag and the acclaimed stage adaptation of the Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi.
