The Lyric Theatre is the oldest surviving of all theatres currently on Shaftesbury Avenue.
Designed by architect C J Phipps and opened in December 1888, the theatre was originally built for impresario Henry J Leslie as a home for operetta. Since then the building has successfully hosted drama, comedy and musicals.
The theatre is currently owned by Max Weitzenhoffer and Nica Burns.
