About Shaftesbury Theatre
To its initial owners, Walter and Frederick Melville, The Princes Theatre, as it was then called, stood as a vision to host fashionable melodrama, much like their other theatre, The Lyceum. Designed by Bertie Crewe, it was considered a flamboyant masterpiece in the early 1900’s from the life-size groups of statuary representing Comedy, Tragedy, Poetry and Music that still adorn the tops of the boxes, to the original paintings above the boxes.
