London’s West End has several theatres, but the London Coliseum is the biggest and finest. Even though some seats were removed as part of the recent restoration, the theatre still seats 2,359 guests. Sir Oswald Stoll, a British theatre manager and co-founder of the Stoll Moss Group theatre company, commissioned the theatre in 1904 to create a theatre of variety. His vision has inspired those after him, keeping the London Coliseum relevant in the competitive theatre scene in London’s West End.
