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.
