Once renowned for its burlesque shows, Playhouse Theatre showed a stunning return to form in 2008 when ‘La Cage aux Folles’ transferred from The Menier Chocolate Factory. The frou frou chorus – and the love story between a drag club owner and his main attraction – enticed a steady stream of punters, while Graham Norton replacing Douglas Hodge as the aging star resulted in a surge of fresh interest. Prior to returning to its cabaret roots, Playhouse was used variously as a highbrow theatre, West End funhouse and, rather randomly, a BBC radio studio where ‘Hancock’s Half Hour’ and ‘The Goon Show’ were recorded.
