Fortune Theatre

The Fortune Theatre was designed by architect Ernest Schaufelberg and first opened to the public in November 1924. The Art Deco theatre was built on the site of the old Albion Tavern and was the first London theatre to be built after World War I.

The venue is most closely associated with it's current production, The Woman In Black, which first took up residence at The Fortune in 1989 and has since become a West End legend.

For many years The Fortune Theatre was privately owned, but in December 2001 it became part of the hugely successful Ambassador Theatre Group.
