Duke of York's Theatre History

Opened in 1892 as the Trafalgar Square Theatre, only a few years after changed its name to The Duke Of York’s Theatre in 1895 to honour the future King George V who agreed to the name change stating, ‘it is a right royal building with a theatrical tradition fit for a King.’ Since 1895, the theatre has played host to a multitude of acclaimed productions and actors; from a 14 year-old Charlie Chaplin’s only West End appearance in Sherlock Holmes in 1905, Embers​, which starred Jeremy Irons, ​Eh Joe​ which starred Michael Gambon and ​In Celebration​ ​which starred Orlando Bloom. Most recently, the theatre opened its doors to acclaimed productions such as Tennessee Williams’ ​Summer and Smoke​ and Ibsen’s classic, ​Rosmersholm.
