About Sondheim Theatre
The theatre opened on 8 October in 1907 with The Sugar Bowl, a comedy by Madeleine Lucette Ryley. The architect was W G R Sprague who designed the theatre as a pair with the Gielgud Theatre on the adjoining corner of Shaftesbury Avenue. Cameron Mackintosh’s Les Miserables transferred to the Queen’s Theatre following an 18 year run at the Palace Theatre. Les Mis opened at the Queen’s on the 12th April 2004. In 2019, Cameron Mackintosh announced that the long-running original production of Les Misérables would close on 13 July 2019 while the theatre goes under a major restoration and will return in a new production from 18 December 2019, when The Queen's Theatre would be renamed as The Sondheim Theatre in honour of composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim.
