King's Theatre

The glitziest, most glamorous productions passing through Glasgow often land at the King's Theatre, with productions of Broadway and West End plays and musicals sitting on a programme with physical theatre and circus acts. The odd megastar comedian or retro musical act also graces the stage of King's Theatre, which first opened its doors in 1904.
