Wyndham's was opened in 1899 by the actor-manager Charles Wyndham, who with engaging egotism named it after himself. William Sprague designed the grade II listed building in a classical style using Portland Stone. Many renowned thesps (and also Madonna) have trodden its boards; the young Charles Laughton made a name for himself here, Diana Rigg banished the shade of Emma Peel with her terrifying Medea, and it saw the record-breaking London run of Art.
The theatre seats 759 over four floors and has three licensed bars. Leicester Square Tube (Northern / Piccadilly) is directly adjacent, and Charing Cross surface rail is nearby. The theatre is served by bus routes 24, 29 and 176.
