About the Gielgud Theatre

The Gielgud Theatre is one of many designed at the time by W.G.R Sprague, an era when many new theatres were springing up across the West End of London. In 1995 the theatre’s famous cat, Beerbohm, died, and was given a front page obituary in The Stage magazine. He was a mighty fine cat! Past shows at the Gielgud Theatre include Imperium, Jez Butterworth’s The Ferryman, The Upstart Crow, and To Kill A Mockingbird.
