Garrick Theatre, London

Opening in 1889, the Garrick Theatre is a prolific West End theatre which has hosted multiple high-calibre productions. In its early life, the theatre was renowned for hosting comedies and melodramas and was named after David Garrick, one of London’s most influential Shakespearean actors. Elegantly designed by C.J Phillips and Walter Emden, the Garrick Theatre was built over an underground river and now sits on top of the London Underground. In 2000, the Garrick became a Really Useful Theatre, before being purchased by Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer and becoming a Nimax Theatre. A beautiful Grade II listed building, the Garrick Theatre is a West End favourite that continues to host starry productions, most recently Kenneth Branagh’s acclaimed season.
