Prince Edward Theatre

The Prince Edward Theatre in London is currently home to Aladdin, and will soon be home to Mary Poppins

The first show to appear at the venue when it originally opened its doors was “Rio Rita”. Described as a light musical comedy and set on the Rio Grande, “Rio Rita” follows the character of Jim Stewart as he falls for a girl named Rita Ferguson, who is also pined after by the villainous General Esteban, the Governor of the San Lucar District.

Over the century it would welcome may shows of different shapes and sizes, but it would return as the home of musical theatre in 1978 when it staged a production of the world famous “Evita”, which starred the famous singer and actress Elaine Paige as part of its illustrious cast, as well as David Essex and Joss Ackland. Elaine Paige would return for the next production, which was another premiere in the form of the now-famous musical “Chess”, which contained music from ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson. 

Another high profile show to appear at the Prince Edward Theatre was “Mamma Mia!”, which would eventually transfer to the Prince of Wales Theatre, but would start out life at the Old Compton Street venue for its first five years. The show would see the work of Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson return to the stage of the Prince Edward as the music of ABBA filled the stage and elevated a romantic story set on a Greek island.

Flying into the Prince Edward Theatre in 2019, make sure you've got your tickets for Mary Poppins now.
