Posted: Wed Jun 20 2012
The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is the grande dame of London theatres. Its site has been in constant use as a playhouse since the 1600s and, despite various incarnations, things haven’t changed. The Theatre Royal Drury Lane is still a people’s theatre staging high-profile productions for the masses – ‘Miss Saigon’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, ‘Oliver!’ – and it has a knack for filling its vast and grand auditorium whatever its offering’s critical reception.
The hour-long 'Through the Stage Door' tour takes place six days a week. As Theatre Royal Drury Lane is a working theatre, the content may vary. Comfortable clothing and footwear is recommended as there are stairs on this walking tour.
