The Gielgud Theatre

Opening on 27th December 1906 as the Hicks Theatre, the Gielgud Theatre was designed by W. G. R. Sprague in the style of Louis XVI. Constructed as a pair with the Queen’s Theatre, the Gielgud was adorned with impressive gold leaf work in the auditorium and boasts a stunning circular staircase in the foyer which leads up to an oval gallery. These features were artfully restored during a 1987 refurbishment and the theatre was refurbished again in 2008 by Cameron Mackintosh. During the 2008 refurbishment, the boxes at the back of the dress circle section were reinstalled, adding to the theatre’s seat count.
