The Novello Theatre, known as the Waldorf Theatre opened on 22 May 1905. On 13 October 1915 the entrance to the theatre pit was bombed during a heavy Zeppelin raid when 19 bombs fell on the Strand. The performance that night was of The Scarlet Pimpernel, with Fred Terry as Sir Percy Blakeney, the Pimpernel. In spite of the destruction going on all around he managed to calm the audience and in true theatrical tradition 'the show went on'. The theatre was bombed during the Blitz but the show went on once again; lunchtime performances of Shakespeare were given with the artists picking their way to the stage over the rubble. In 2005, the theatre closed for a major six-month, £4.5 million refurbishment to celebrate its centenary. It re-opened on 8 December 2005 under its new name of the Novello Theatre.
