Located near Trafalgar Square, The Playhouse is a West End Theatre, opened in 1882. It was originally built by F. H. Fowler and Hill with a larger seating capacity than it currently has. After being restored in 1907, it reopened as The Playhouse in 1987. From 1951 until 1976, the venue was used consistently by the BBC as a live performance recording studio. The Ambassador Group managed the venue from 2002, and in 2013, they bought full ownership of The Playhouse.

Booking until January 03

Following two storming runs in the West End at both the Dominion Theatre and the London Palladium, Michael Flatley's hit "dansical" show will get a third staging in time for the Christmas season, this time at the Playhouse Theatre! Having entranced audiences with thrilling choreography, as well as a guest appearance by songstress Nadine Coyle during earlier runs, this new run is set to continue what has been a fantastic year for the company.
