Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London

Located close to Covent Garden, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is one of the largest playhouses in the West End, with a seating capacity of 2196. With a theatre on the site since 1663, it has seen countless productions through its doors. The current theatre in London today first opened in 1812 with a production of Hamlet. In recent decades, the theatre has been home to some of the most anticipated musicals including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Shrek and 42nd Street.

According to reports, the Theatre Royal Drury Lane is the most haunted theatre in the world, with audience members claiming that they have seen the “Man in Grey” walk in the corridors.

Some of the biggest shows in the last few years include the 2009 revival of Oliver starring Jodie Prenger as Nancy after a televised nationwide competition to cast the female lead. Continuing the child-led theme, Shrek received its West End premiere in 2011, bringing the Dreamworks ogre to life.

The theatre is currently closed for renovation, which is expected to be completed in 2020.
