Tag: Sondheim Theatre (was Queen’s Theatre)
Although the Sondheim Theatre’s (was Queen’s Theatre) interior, designed in 1907 by WGR Sprague, still remains, the modern, glass-fronted exterior was built in 1959, repairing 1940 bomb damage from World War II. The modern foyer is a stark contrast between modern Fifties/Sixties exterior and warm red Edwardian interior of auditorium.
The same bomb damage effected the auditoriumm and in 2019 the long run of Les Miserables was paused for three months so that the theatre owners could finally rectify that damage and do some much needed work back stage.
