  • The Piccadilly Theatre opened in 1928 with Jerome Kern’s musical, Blue Eyes, and  made entertainment history that year when it premiered the world’s first talking picture, The Jazz Singer.
  • Plays presented at the theatre include the premiere of Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, starring the author and Margaret Rutherford as Madam Arcati, and John Gielgud starring as Macbeth.
  • In the 1980s the theatre was home to the Royal Shakespeare Company who presented Richard II starring Ian McKellen, Piaf starring Jane Lapotaire and Once in a Lifetime with David Suchet, Richard Griffiths and Zoë Wanamaker.
  • Since its acquisition by ATG the theatre has presented a series of successful musicals including Guys and Dolls, starring Ewan McGregor and subsequently Patrick Swayze, which enjoyed a three year run and Grease which ran for four years. In March 2014 the award winning Jersey Boys transfers to the Piccadilly from the Prince Edward Theatre and had a hugely successful 3 year run. The theatre is now welcoming family favourite Annie back to the West End.
