Opening in 1905 as the Waldorf, Novello Theatre was built as a pair with the Aldwych Theatre and features design by W. G. R. Sprague. At present, the theatre is managed by the Shubert Organization. In 2005, Sir Cameron Mackintosh purchased the theatre from Delfont Mackintosh Theatres and renamed it the Novello Theatre in honour of Ivor Novello, the owner of a flat above the theatre. In its century-long existence, the Novello Theatre has been refurbished 3 times; once in 1930, then in the early 1970s, and most recently in 2005. The last refurbishment was done by Cameron Mackintosh’s company for the theatre’s 100th anniversary.
