Prince of Wales Theatre

Opened in 1884 as the Prince's and renamed the Prince of Wales in 1886, it saw the establishment of the first Pierrot troupe in England following the performance of mime in L'Enfant Prodigue. Musical comedies and revues continued until the theatre was demolished in 1937. The foundation stone of the new theatre designed by Robert Cromie, was laid in 1937 by Gracie Fields. Since the 1950's and 1960's variety shows, comedies and musicals continued with popular shows starring Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl, Juliet Prowse in Sweet Charity and Barry Manilow's Copacabana.
