One of London's most storied theatres, though these days it's basically just the home of 'The Lion King'
The huge, sumptuous Lyceum Theatre has one of the liveliest histories of any London building. Originally built in 1765, it functioned as a theatre for a while before drifting off to host other things, including a circus and a waxwork exhibition. After a fire it was rebuilt and reopened in something like is present form in 1834, functioning as a theatre venue until 1951, when it was turned into a ballroom, then finally closed or a decade from 1986.
There's not a lot to note after 1999: it has played continual host to 'The Lion King', the most successful theatre show of all time, and it shows no sign of going anywhere.
