About the Cambridge Theatre

The Cambridge Theatre is a stunner, a rare concrete and steel and example of a London theatre taking on the trendy German Expressionist style that was so popular in the 1930s. As an early adopter of the new style, it was built in 1929-30. The idea was to calm the decor down from the dramatic design excesses of the music hall era. Past shows at the Cambridge Theatre include Chicago, Dancing in The Streets, and Something Wicked This Way Comes, the famously spooky science fiction story originally written by Ray Bradbury.
