Day 142: Lyceum Theatre

15 Sep

Lyceum Theatre

The Lyceum Theatre is a 2,000-seat West End theatre located in the City of Westminster, on Wellington Street, just off the Strand.

There has been a theatre with this name in the locality since 1765, and the present site opened on July 14, 1834 to a design by Samuel Beazley.

The building was unique in that it had a balcony overhanging the circle. It was built by the partnership of Peto & Grissell.
