Phoenix Theatre

The Phoenix Theatre is located on Charing Cross Road (at the corner with Flitcroft Street) with its entrance in Phoenix Street. It opened in 1930 with the premiere of Noel Coward's Private Lives with Coward himself in the cast as well as Gertrude Lawrence and a young Laurence Olivier. In 1969 the theatre's long association with Coward was celebrated with a midnight matinee in honour of his 70th birthday and the foyer bar was renamed the Noel Coward Bar.

The theatre was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, Bertie Crewe and Cecil Masey and is Grade II listed. It has a neoclassical exterior with an Italian style interior. The theatre is now owned by the Ambassador Group

The current production of Blood Brothers transferred from the the Albery Theatre in 1991 and is now the longest running production at the theatre.
