Adelphi Theatre History

The Adelphi Theatre is co-owned with the Nederlander Group. Throughout its fascinating 200-year history, the theatre’s gorgeous art deco interiors have hosted Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard, Phantom-sequel Love Never Dies, the record-breaking One Man Two Guvnors, gloriously glam-drag Kinky Boots, and Sara Bareilles‘ hit Broadway musical Waitress. 2021 will see the musical adaptation of the classic Hollywood film Back To The Future.
