The Queen’s Theatre is one of six London Theatres located close to Shaftesbury Avenue.

The theatre is on the opposite corner facing Shaftesbury Avenue and was built in 1907. The architect was W G R Sprague who designed the theatre as a pair with the Globe, now the Gielgud Theatre.

For several decades the theatre’s auditorium was used as a Tango Tearoom and Theatrical Lounge but in the 1930s it was returned to its original function as a theatre.

In 1940 the Queen’s was the first West End theatre to be put out of action by enemy bombing in World War II. The theatre was rebuilt in 1959 with acclaimed Interior Designer, Sir Hugh Casson, acting as consultant on the décor.

The Queen’s Theatre became the permanent home in 2004 for the West End's longest-running musical Les Misérables.
