The Adelphi Theatre

The Strand, London, WC2E 7NA
Tel: 020 7344 0055     Web: www.adelphitheatre.co.uk
 

Famed for it's musical productions such as; Evita and Chicago. The current Adelphi Theatre is noted for being designed in a modernist 1930's art deco style. When it opened it was described as being designed with a complete absence of curves. Externally and internally the entire conception is carried out in straight lines and angles, the angle of thirty-two degrees being used as the master note. This 'straight-line' design is most noticeable from the outside by the glazed window looking out from the Dress Circle bar area onto the street, directly above the theatre's canopy and, internally, by the line of the front of the two circles and side boxes. The current show, Chicago The Musical - also a revival - opened in November 1997 and will take over from Me and My Girl to become The Adelphi Theatre's longest running show in October 2005!

Built on the site of a former factory, it opened in 1927 as a cinema. However, it was converted for theatrical use in 1976 and is now exclusively a music venue with a capacity of 2,000. The building that houses the London Astoria was originally built as a pickle factory for food producers Crosse and Blackwell. Before becoming a music venue the London Astoria has played many roles in the history of the West End. The buildings first venture into the world of entertainment was as a variety club for men- complete with nude dancing. Though reasonable successful, the site was so well located that it became apparent that the venue could cater to a broader audience and was refurbished as a music hall. The venue then became synonymous with television broadcasts. The Sky television show 'The Happening' was the first show to be recorded here. All round music enthusiast Jools Holland recorded his 'Jukebox Jury' show here at the Astoria. Within the last two decades the London Astoria has evolved into an exclusive live music and club venue. 'Nirvana', 'Black Sabbath', 'Prince', 'Eminem' and 'The White Stripes' are among the acts to have played here and large scale acts continue to perform here. In 1992 a poll conducted by music journal the 'NME' saw the London Astoria voted the nations second favourite music venue. High praise indeed. In 2002 the Astoria was acquired by 'Mean Fiddler' who promise to uphold the venues rich traditions and continue to draw the worlds finest Rock acts. The venue plays host to the popular nightclub G-A-Y, which sees many celebrities visit and perform music for the assembled crowd.

In addition, Lord's is the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club and the England & Wales Cricket Board as well as the European Cricket Council. It is also the setting for the state-of-the-art MCC Indoor Cricket School, the unrivalled MCC Library and the world-famous MCC Museum - where exhibits include the Wisden Trophy and, of course, the Ashes urn.
