Teatro Lope de Vega was inaugurated in the mid-20th century with a musical variety show, and it could be said that this beginning marked its fate. Even though it operated as a cinema for a number of years (and remains so in the hearts of thousands of 'madrileños' who saw the films of the era on the screen here), Lope de Vega is the theatre that has led the transformation of the Gran Vía into Madrid's very own Broadway, through its large-scale productions like 'The Lion King'.
