Owned and operated by Ambassdor Theatre Group (ATG) the Phoenix was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and Bertie Crewe. It opened in 1930 with the premiere of Noel Coward's Private Lives starring the author, Gertrude Lawrence and Laurence Olivier. Many star actors have appeared at the theatre including Maggie Smith, Diana Rigg, John Gielgud, Dustin Hoffman, Derek Jacobi, Kenneth Branagh and Stephen Fry. More recently the theatre has presented a number of successful musicals including, between 1991 and 2012, Willy Russell's Blood Brothers which became the theatre's longest-running show and was seen by over 5 million people. The theatre is now home to the award-winning Broadway musical Once.

This is a beautiful theatre. Brilliant atmosphere. We went to see the matinee performance of The Girls and was wondering how the film "Calendar Girls" could be successfully adapted to a stage show. There was no need to wonder for as soon as the cast...More

It's been a long time since I watched the film "The Calendar Girls" and other than remembering that they bared, nearly, all to raise money for cancer, I'd forgotten the characters, who died, and how it ended. I made a conscious decision not the watch...More

To be honest... not sure? We didn't drink in the theatre.. we had a drink before the performance in the 'Phoenix' bar next door downstairs in the cellar bar. So sorry can't help I'm afraid.
