The first public building in the world to be lit entirely by electricity, the Savoy Theatre was opened in 1881 by impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte on the site of the former Savoy Palace. The theatre was originally built to house performances of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operas, which became known as the 'Savoy Operas'. It presented the first public performance of Oscar Wilde's Salome in 1931 and the premiere of Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit in 1941, and works by other renowned playwrights such as Stoppard, Priestley and Shakespeare. Now part of the Ambassador Theatre Group, it is known for its successful musicals, including Legally Blonde, Soul Sister and Fiddler on the Roof.

The nearest Tube is Charing Cross (Northern / Bakerloo) and the theatre is served by bus routes 6, 9, 11, 13, 15, 23, 87, 91, 139, 176, N9, N11, N13, N15 and N21.
