Criterion Theatre, London

The Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly Circus is a beloved venue in the West End, having first emerged in the 19th century before maintaining its place in the capital right up to the modern day.

The first shows at the Criterion were An American Lady by Henry J Byron and Topsyturveydom by W S Gilbert. In more recent times the Criterion has welcomed abridged versions of the works of Shakespeare and also a shortened version of Star Wars. The Criterion was also home to The 39 Steps, with famous set pieces involving the Forth Bridge and the Flying Scotsman.
