West End theatre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

London's Palace Theatre built in 1891
London's Palace Theatre built in 1891

West End theatre is a common term for mainstream professional theatre staged in the large theatres of "Theatreland" in and near the West End of London.[1] Along with New York City's Broadway theatre, West End theatre is usually considered to represent the highest level of commercial theatre in the English-speaking world. Seeing a West End show is a common tourist activity in London.[1]

Society of London Theatre (SOLT) has announced that 2017 was a record year for the capital’s theatre industry with attendances topping 15,000,000 for the first time since the organization began collecting audience data in 1986. Box office revenues also exceeded £700,000,000.[2] Famous screen actors, British and international alike, frequently appear on the London stage.[3]

ROBERTS LONDON There is in London all that life can afford Samuel Johnson 1709 1784 ladies and gentlemen boys and girls welcome to London right now I'm starting out besides London's Trafalgar Square at the junction where Piccadilly meets the mall Whitehall and Charing Cross and since 1663 where I'm standing or the brass plaque besides my feet has been considered the very centre of London but us Brits have this knack of coming up with charming nicknames for pretty much everything from buildings to bikes that make sense to us but often leave visitors and tourists completely bewildered and confused so it will come as no surprise that this area that I'am in and in particular the part I'am heading into is also colloquially known as the West End but more about that and why its relevant in a moment London is renowned for very many things and something its world famous for is the arts in particular the performing arts and theatre and my family a big fans of the theatre living here in this city it would be silly not to take advantage of everything the city has to offer it would be silly to take access to world class for granted so this evening I'm going to meet my little sister for dinner and drinks to catch up beforehand we're going to go and watch a show a very special performance of a very special show I thought before I get to the theatre I thought I would share with you for anyone who's interested in coming to the theatre here whether your seasons theatre goer or looking for tickets for your first show I thought I'd share with you somewhere that might be of interest for you to get tickets so let's go so why is this area very close to the center of London called the West End of London and why is it often linked to the theatre industry historically this was not the center of town the City of London often called just the city was the center in the very heart of London for centuries and this area is just next to and west of the city today the city is renowned as the home of London's financial services sector and today the West End which is home to many of London's major visitor attractions shopping streets and entertainment venues is a far more popular destination with visitors than the city the term the West End I hear used less and less because the area encompasses is large and pretty vague and the areas within it like Covent Garden Soho Mayfair Marylebone or Fitzrovia have stronger independent identities than they have ever had except that is when it comes to theatre West End seems to add an air of prestige or endorsement to a show so we still have West End shows and West End theatre venues fortunately it's a huge area and there are many of them there is a huge concentration of theatres in the area between the River Thames or the Strand all the way up to Oxford Street okay welcome to London's Leicester Square home of the TKTS theatre ticket booth TKTS here in leicester square is a great place to buy london theater tickets especially if you're here you're ready to watch a show and you're flexible TKTS is run by the Society of London theatres and the original idea was to benefit theatres by simply filling otherwise empty seats so if a show is popular the tickets will be full price if the theater is not full the tickets will be discounted TKTS has been in Leicester Square for more than 30 years and is famous for its excellent on the day deals and half-price bargains it's no secret so every time I walk past here people are looking at the listings and queuing for tickets TKTS is open 7 days a week you can only buy a theater tickets in person only for performances today tomorrow and the next day however if you know what you want to see and when I wouldn't gamble on availability book tickets with the theatre in advance there is so much to choose from here in London plays musicals operas dance and so much more ticket prices go up and down depending on availability so the more flexible you are with dates and times the more seats and better deals will be available show previews for upcoming shows which were effectively rehearsals for both cast and venue before official opening night or a great way to see shows first before all your family and friends also at reduced prices the society behind TKTS also organise West End live in Trafalgar Square a whole day of free show previews and the Olivier Awards which celebrates the best London theatre has to offer and both are fabulous events to watch and also an excellent source to find shows you want to see okay so from the TKTS ticket booth here in Leicester Square I'm gonna head up into the theater and to meet my little sister so the show we're seeing tonight is the mousetrap at the St.Martins theatre a play by Agatha Christie the mousetrap first opened back in 1952 making it today the world's longest-running show when it first opened Winston Churchill was prime minister tea and sugar was still rationed and Queen Elizabeth had been on the throne less than a year Agatha Christie is the best-selling fiction author to date her work sell more than Shakespeare and the only work to out sell her is the Bible Agatha Christie wrote crime novels in the golden age of the genre she is the queen of the whodunit okay this is the St.Martins theatre home of the mousetrap the show my sister and I will be watching this evening and it's just opposite the original and renowned ivy restaurant so as you can see from the neon signs on the theater the mousetrap celebrating its 66th year so now I just need to find my little sister so with such a long history there are many stories about the mousetrap one of which is a lady got one of London's black taxis here she jumped out paid the driver went to run into the theatre the black cabbie realizing he'd been shortchanged then shouted out to her who done it potentially ruining the show for her okay guys I've met my little sister so we're ready to see this evening show so lets head into the theatre the plot of the mousetrap is the timeless who done it in a very quintessential British setting a big old country house the guests are snowed in and then the drama with a very British sense of wit unfolds onstage okay we've collected our tickets from the box office I've got a programme this here counts down the total number of performances to date of this record breaking show obviously to really enjoy the show nobody should walk into this theater for the first time knowing who done it so after every performance audiences are asked by a member of the cast to keep the secret of whodunit locked in their hearts to avoid spoiling the mystery for future audiences and as a matter of principle to avoid spoiling the enjoyment of the play for people who want to go and see it both audiences and critics had kept the secret even in the age of information and the Internet the show's famous tag line simply progressed from keep the secret to hash tag keep the secret there is and probably always will be someone so desperate for clicks and views who doesn't respect the long tradition who will publish it online so if you're planning to see the show don't search too hard but it's amazing really if you consider the tens of thousands of shows to date and multiply that by the size of the audience millions of people have kept this secret and in doing so the mystery of the mousetrap alive and well for future audiences okay we're in the dress circle of the St.Martins theatre so we have got incredible views of the stage its a beautiful theatre good evening ladies and gentleman and welcome to the St.Martins theatre and the 27296 performance of the mousetrap the show Agatha Christie thought she might get a nice little run of about eight months from tonight is a very very special performance because it is the 60th anniversary today of the mousetrap being the longest running show in the world it beat Chu Chin Chow that was on at his Majesty theatre in 1916 so that's not bad so congratulations for being in the audience on this very special night and I hope you enjoy this performance of the mousetrap thank you thank you ladies and gentleman for your warm reception this evening now that you've seen the mousetrap your our partners in crime so in order to preserve the tradition of the mousetrap we ask that you keep the secret of who done it locked in your hearts okay the mousetrap was brilliant Bravo to tonight's cast fabulous performance by all of them it's incredible to think that in the 1950s although the whodunit story's timeless the characters are very much of the period when the first when the first show was in town the 1950's but today its become a period drama the tagline of the show has always been keep the secret it's now in even in the modern day of the Internet become one of Britain's best kept secret it's now hash tag keep the secret okay so we're gonna go for dinner and drinks so I'll see you guys a little later in the month The End

History

Theatre in London flourished after the English Reformation. The first permanent public playhouse, known simply as The Theatre, was constructed in 1576 in Shoreditch by James Burbage. It was soon joined by The Curtain. Both are known to have been used by William Shakespeare's company. In 1599, the timber from The Theatre was moved to Southwark, where it was used in building the Globe Theatre in a new theatre district formed beyond the controls of the City corporation. These theatres were closed in 1642 due to the Puritans who would later influence the interregnum of 1649.

After the Restoration (1660), two companies were licensed to perform, the Duke's Company and the King's Company. Performances were held in converted buildings, such as Lisle's Tennis Court. The first West End theatre, known as Theatre Royal in Bridges Street, was designed by Thomas Killigrew and built on the site of the present Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. It opened on 7 May 1663 and was destroyed by a fire nine years later. It was replaced by a new structure designed by Christopher Wren and renamed the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.[4][5]

Outside the West End, Sadler's Wells Theatre opened in Islington on 3 June 1683. Taking its name from founder Richard Sadler and monastic springs that were discovered on the property,[6][7] it operated as a "Musick House", with performances of opera; as it was not licensed for plays. In the West End, the Theatre Royal Haymarket opened on 29 December 1720 on a site slightly north of its current location, and the Royal Opera House opened in Covent Garden on 7 December 1732.

The Patent theatre companies retained their duopoly on drama well into the 19th century, and all other theatres could perform only musical entertainments. By the early 19th century, however, music hall entertainments became popular, and presenters found a loophole in the restrictions on non-patent theatres in the genre of melodrama. Melodrama did not break the Patent Acts, as it was accompanied by music. Initially, these entertainments were presented in large halls, attached to public houses, but purpose-built theatres began to appear in the East End at Shoreditch and Whitechapel.

The West End theatre district became established with the opening of many small theatres and halls, including the Adelphi in The Strand on 17 November 1806. South of the River Thames, the Old Vic, Waterloo Road, opened on 11 May 1818. The expansion of the West End theatre district gained pace with the Theatres Act 1843, which relaxed the conditions for the performance of plays, and The Strand gained another venue when the Vaudeville opened on 16 April 1870. The next few decades saw the opening of many new theatres in the West End. The Criterion Theatre opened on Piccadilly Circus on 21 March 1874, and in 1881, two more houses appeared: the Savoy Theatre in The Strand, built by Richard D'Oyly Carte specifically to showcase the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan, opened on 10 October (the first theatre to be lit by cooler, cleaner electric lights), and five days later the Comedy Theatre opened as the Royal Comedy Theatre on Panton Street in Leicester Square. It abbreviated its name three years later.[5] The theatre building boom continued until about World War I.

During the 1950s and 1960s, many plays were produced in theatre clubs, to evade the censorship then exercised by the Lord Chamberlain's Office. The Theatres Act 1968 finally abolished censorship of the stage in the United Kingdom.

Theatreland

"Theatreland", London's main theatre district, contains approximately forty venues and is located in and near the heart of the West End of London. It is traditionally defined by The Strand to the south, Oxford Street to the north, Regent Street to the west, and Kingsway to the east, but a few other nearby theatres are also considered "West End" despite being outside the area proper (e.g. The Apollo Victoria Theatre, in Westminster). Prominent theatre streets include Drury Lane, Shaftesbury Avenue, and The Strand. The works staged are predominantly musicals, classic and modern straight plays, and comedy performances.[9]

Many theatres in the West End are of late Victorian or Edwardian construction and are privately owned. Many are architecturally impressive, and the largest and best maintained feature grand neo-classical, Romanesque, or Victorian façades and luxurious, detailed interior design and decoration.

However, owing to their age, leg room is often cramped, and audience facilities such as bars and toilets are often much smaller than in modern theatres. The protected status of the buildings and their confined urban locations, combined with financial constraints, make it very difficult to make substantial improvements to the level of comfort offered. In 2003, the Theatres Trust estimated that an investment of £250 million over the following 15 years was required for modernisation,[10] and stated that 60% of theatres had seats from which the stage was not fully visible.[11] The theatre owners unsuccessfully requested tax concessions to help them meet the costs.

From 2004 onwards there were several incidents of falling plasterwork or performances being cancelled because of urgent building repairs being required. These events culminated in the partial collapse of the ceiling of the Apollo Theatre in December 2013.[12] Of these earlier incidents, only one led to people being hurt,[13] but at the Apollo Theatre 76 people needed medical treatment for their injuries.[14]

In 2012, gross sales of £529,787,692 were up 0.27% and attendances also increased 0.56% to 13,992,773-year-on-year[15] In 2013, sales again rose this time by 11% to £585,506,455,[16] with attendances rising to 14,587,276.[17] This was despite slightly fewer performances occurring in 2013.[18]

Long-running shows

The St Martin's Theatre, home to The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the world.
The St Martin's Theatre, home to The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the world.

The length of West End shows depend on ticket sales. The longest-running musical in West End history is Les Misérables. It overtook Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats, which closed in 2002 after running for 8,949 performances and 21 years, as the longest-running West End musical of all time on 8 October 2006. Other long-runners include Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, Lion King and Willy Russell's Blood Brothers which have also subsequently overtaken Cats. However the non-musical Agatha Christie play The Mousetrap is the longest-running production in the world, and has been performed continuously since 1952.

London's non-commercial theatres

The exterior of the Old Vic
The exterior of the Old Vic

The term "West End theatre" is generally used to refer specifically to commercial productions in Theatreland. However, the leading non-commercial theatres in London enjoy great artistic prestige. These include the Royal National Theatre, the Barbican Centre, Shakespeare's Globe, the Old Vic, and the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre. These theatres stage a high proportion of straight drama, Shakespeare, other classic plays and premieres of new plays by leading playwrights. Successful productions from the non-commercial theatres sometimes transfer to one of the commercial West End houses for an extended run.

The Royal Opera House is widely regarded as one of the greatest opera houses in the world, comparable with the Palais Garnier, La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera House. Commonly known simply as Covent Garden due to its location, it is home to the Royal Opera, Royal Ballet and a resident symphony orchestra, and hosts guest performances from other leading opera, ballet and performance companies from around the world.

Likewise, the London Coliseum is the resident home to the English National Opera. The theatre is also the London base for performances by the English National Ballet, who perform regular seasons throughout the year when not on tour.

The Peacock Theatre is located on the edge of the Theatreland area. Now owned by the London School of Economics and Political Science, it is used in the evenings for dance performances by Sadler's Wells, who manage the theatre on behalf of the school.

Other London theatres

There are a great number of theatre productions in London outside the West End. Much of this is known as fringe theatre which is the equivalent of Off-Broadway and Off-Off-Broadway theatre in New York. Among these are the Bush Theatre and the Donmar Warehouse. Fringe venues range from well-equipped small theatres to rooms above pubs, and the performances range from classic plays, to cabaret, to plays in the languages of London's ethnic minorities. The performers range from emerging young professionals to amateurs.

There are many theatres located throughout Greater London, such as the Lyric Hammersmith, Theatre Royal Stratford East, Rose Theatre, Kingston, New Wimbledon Theatre, the Rudolf Steiner Theatre in Westminster, the Ashcroft Theatre in Croydon, Secombe Theatre in Sutton and the Churchill Theatre in Bromley.

Awards

There are a number of annual awards for outstanding achievements in London theatre:
