With its wide, sweeping curved frontage and dramatic tiered auditorium, the Piccadilly Theatre dates back to 1928, right on the cusp of Art Deco. The outside is low key but the interior is purest Deco, designed by the prestigious Marc-Henri Levy and Gaston Laverdet in a colour scheme so delicious it has been retained over the years. Once one of the city’s biggest theatrical venues, it has been home to a broad spread of entertainment including cinema, ballet and drama. In fact it was the first place in Britain to screen a talking movie. In the late ‘30s it was infamous for scandalous stage shows and was damaged by bombs during the Second World War. The ‘90s saw the Piccadilly focusing on musicals and dance, with Matthew Bourne’s luscious Swan Lake hitting the big time here. Since then it has hosted some serious successes: Spend Spend Spend, Jailhouse Rock, Guys and Dolls, Grease the Musical and Ghost the Musical to name a few.
