The Charing Cross Theatre is one of London’s hidden gems, nestled neatly under the brick arches on Villiers Street near Charing Cross railway station. The graceful curved entrance leads to a space that is both cosy and intimate with a modest 275 seats. It’s a venue famous for hosting a truly eclectic mix of comedy, drama, musicals, cabaret and late-night shows at bargainous prices. It aims to make quality theatre affordable for audiences and one way it does this is by presenting a diverse programme which appeals to as wide an audience as possible. The theatre also puts on shows with an open, collaborative spirit where seasoned pros can work with emerging talent. UK premiers, high profile names and revivals of classic plays are therefore all common sights here. You’ll find the venue easily accessible from both Embankment and Charing Cross Underground stations.
