Located on Shaftesbury Avenue, The Gielgud Theatre is a West End theatre which was designed by W.G.R Sprague and first opened in 1906 as the Hicks Theatre, after Seymour Hicks. In 1909, Charles Frohman took over the management of the theatre and it was named the Globe Theatre for 85 years. In 1994 it was renamed the Gielgud Theatre in honour of John Gielgud, as the Shakespeare's Globe was being constructed on the South Bank. Since 2006, Delfont Mackintosh Theatre have operated the Gielgud.
