Prince of Wales Theatre
Prince Of Wales Theatre, Coventry Street, London, London, W1D 6AS
Approx. capacity: 1160
The Prince of Wales Theatre is a West End theatre in Coventry Street, near Leicester Square in the City of Westminster. It was established in 1884 and rebuilt in 1937, and extensively refurbished in 2004 by Sir Cameron Mackintosh, its current owner. Built in 1884, the Prince's Theatre was renamed The Prince of Wales in honour of the future King, Edward VII, two years later. From its inception, The Prince of Wales Theatre had great success; the musical comedy Dorothy that ran from 1886 to 1888 made its author enough money to build the Lyric Theatre just around the corner on Shaftesbury Avenue. Initially, the Prince of Wales Theatre was known for its musical comedies and wordless mime performances, but staged its first straight play in 1898, Pelleas et Melisande. From then on, the Prince of Wales Theatre varied its productions and these varying styles brought varying success. Following an unsuccessful spell under the management of actress Edith Evans, from 1932, the Prince of Wales Theatre exclusively staged revues in the Folies style with comedians and risquÚ dancers. These shows proved so lucrative that the income from these performances alone paid for the demolition of the original Prince Of Wales Theatre and the construction of the larger, existing building in its place in 1937. Since the current building was opened, the Prince of Wales Theatre has enjoyed great success in a variety of productions, notably a run of Broadway musicals in the 1960's, including Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand (1966), Sweet Charity (1967) and Burt Bacharach's Promises Promises (1969). Other notable productions in recent years include Underneath The Arches (1982-1983) and Andrew Lloyd-Webber's record breaking Aspects of Love starring Michael Ball (1989-1992), which was the Prince of Wales' longest running production before Mamma Mia.

The Book of Mormon, the Broadway musical from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez. The Book of Mormon was an instant sensation when it landed in the West End in 2013. A sell-out winner of most major Broadway awards in its first year, it is now playing at London's Prince of Wales Theatre just by Leicester Square. Created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the men behind TV's South Park, and Robert Lopez, one of the composers of hit show Avenue Q and writer of Disney's Oscar-winning megahit Let It Go, The Book of Mormon skilfully combines controversial humour with traditional musical theatre style, as well as a surprising amount of affection for its subject matter. Telling the story of two young and naive Mormon missionaries as they are sent out from Salt Lake City to find converts in Uganda, The Book of Mormon is a sharp, savage and satirical show, with an intelligent message, not to mention great songs and performances, and a fair amount of filthy humour. The Book of Mormon has won nine Tony Awards, a Grammy and four Olivier Awards, as well as almost universally glowing reviews, from critics and audiences alike.
