Adelphi Theatre Sweeney Todd

The Adelphi is a 1500 seater theatre in the West End of London.  It was founded in 1806 as the Sans Pareil (Without Compare) and in 1819 it took on its present name, which came from the name of a block of neoclassical terrace houses situated between the Strand and the River Thames which had been built by the Adam brothers (Greek for brothers is αδελφοί  - adelphoi).

There have been four theatres on this site in the Strand, operating under seven different names.  The current building opened in December 1930 and the art deco features were restored in 1993 with the opening of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Sunset Boulevard which starred Patti Lupone, Betty Buckley, Petula Clarke, Rita Moreno and Elaine Paige during its run of over 1,500 performances.  This was followed by a number of other musical theatre productions including Chicago, Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and of course it is where Andrew Lloyd Webber will open his sequel to The Phantom of the Opera “Love Never Dies.
