Theatre History

The Phoenix Theatre opened in 1930 and was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and Bertie Crewe.

The theatre had a very auspicious start, given that it opened with the premiere of Noël Coward’s Private Lives starring Noel, Gertrude Lawrence and Laurence Olivier.

A long list of famous stars have played at the Phoenix since Noel Coward, including including John Gielgud, Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Smith, Diana Rigg, Derek Jacobi, Stephen Fry and Kenneth Branagh.

In its later years the theatre has become synonymous with musicals, including a hugely long and successful run ofWilly Russell’s Blood Brothers from 1991 to 2012.
