Busy West End home of serious drama

Wyndham’s is a West End theatre with genuine pedigree. It's named for Charles Wyndham, the 19th century actor who originally had it built, and he launched it in 1899 with a play where he played another acting legend, David Garrick. It was here that JM Barrie staged a series of plays from 1903; 'Rebecca' author Daphne du Maurier launched her play 'The Years Between'; fellow novelist Graham Greene chose it to premiere 1953’s ‘The Living Room’; and Edward Albee presented the autobiographical ‘Three Tall Women’ starring Maggie Smith. It is also where Madonna made her rather awkward West End debut in 2002.

Wyndham's has a grand Portland stone exterior, with neoclassical flourishes that ensure it cuts a dash on busy Charing Cross road. Inside, Wyndham's Theatre is all Louis XVI splendour. With 759 seats across four levels, it's one of the West End's more intimate venues, meaning you get a good view of the action at most price points. 

Basically the order of the day is serious plays and quality comedies, often starring big names, plus the occasional short run for a successful comedian. Runs are typically limited for this busy house, and absolutely do not go expecting to catch a musical here.
