This 1930s musical powerhouse is the long-term home of the RSC's ‘Matilda’
Cambridge Theatre might have been a hit with architecture nuts, but it didn't always have the easiest time finding a hit to fill its concrete walls. Early in its life, it was relegated to serving as a venue for trade shows and concerts but during the war drama took the stage once again, with a notable production of Shaw’s 'Heartbreak House', starring Edith Evans. Keith Waterhouse’s benchmark drama ‘Billy Liar’ played here for two years in the early 1960s; variety stars Tommy Steele and Bruce Forsyth also appeared during this period. A National Theatre season played at the Cambridge in 1970, a decade which also brought Ingrid Bergman and Peter Cook and Dudley Moore to the venue.
