Although there have been various earlier entertainment buildings on the site the reconstructed Adelphi Theatre, with its art deco interiors, opened to the public in December 1930 with Jessie Matthews starring in Ever Green.The front-of-house areas of the Adelphi Theatre were restored to their original lustre and extravagance in 1993 when Andrew Lloyd Webber became co-owner and opened his musical production of Sunset Boulevard. Other famous productions at the Adelphi Theatre include Gertrude Lawrence in Cole Porter’s Nymph Errant, Ivor Novello’s The Dancing Years, Bless The Bride, Beatrice Lillie as Auntie Mame, Van Johnson in The Music Man, Lionel Bart’s Blitz! and Maggie May, Charlie Girl with Anna Neagle, a revival of Me and My Girl originally starring Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson and in the Adelphi Theatre’s longest run (over nine years), the new Broadway production of Kander and Ebb’s Chicago. Revivals of Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat have proved enormously popular. More recently, the theatre played host to the worldwide premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Love Never Dies.

I've heard people rave about this musical so I thought that I'd go and see it, but I wish I hadn't. The score was extremely loud and there were no distinct tunes, everything sounded the same and like it was from a radio station that...More

Loved this musical, high energy, great singing and dancing. Great fun but with a underlying message to accept people as they are. The Adelphi is easy to find, very close to Charing cross tube station. The bar prices were a bit high but we didn't...More

Kinky Boots is by far one of the greatest musicals I've ever seen... And I've seen quite a few! The songs, the cast, everything is just perfect and puts you in a good mood. Everyone should see it!

Excellent show, even though we were in row X of the stalls. Still brilliant. The show is about a shoe company that is going to the wall but the new owner, whose father has just passed away, comes back to run the factory. He comes...More

I had just seen The Book of Mormon where the seats were comfortable and had unobstructed views. Then I went to the Adelphi and experienced the opposite. Kinky Boots was a disappointment. The first 15 minutes were so dull that I truly thought I'd leave...More

The substance of the show is in the same broad area as "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" which we had seen recently, but this only added to our enjoyment. While Matt Henry was excellent as Lola, the rest of the actors were very, very good,...More

It is cheaper by block bookings. You might try and ring the box office and get tickets that people have returned. Matinees, during the week, can offer good deals. Good luck.

Wednesday and Saturday - West End shows tend to have just two matinees per week.
