Noël Coward Theatre
Time Out says
Thu Sep 13 2012
Expect a broad programme of productions at this long-standing, popular Covent Garden landmark. Originally known as The New Theatre, the tribute to playwright Noël Coward was paid much later in the theatre's history – though a young Coward did manage to present one of his own plays, 'I'll Leave it to You', on the theatre's stage in 1920. 'Avenue Q' billboards have adorned the front in recent times, only making way in 2009 for the star-heavy 'Calendar Girls' with Lynda Bellingham, Patricia Hodge and Siân Phillips.
