The Piccadilly Theatre, as its name suggests, is located in the Piccadilly district of London's West End. One of the largest theatres when it first opened in 1928, the Piccadilly Theatre has been used as an entertainment venue of all sorts, being a cinema, cabaret restaurant and of course, a theatre.
Past early productions at the Piccadilly include the first ever London performances of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and A Streetcar Named Desire in the 1950s, and in the 1960s, legendary rock band The Beatles recorded material in the auditorium.
The 1980s saw a change in direction for material shown at the Piccadilly Theatre, with variety entertainment broadcast live on television in the show Live from the Piccadilly hosted by Jimmy Tarbuck.
When the 90s arrived, the Piccadilly Theatre begun to move in the direction that it is now in, and hosted several top musicals. Productions that have been performed in recent years include Grease, Guys and Dolls and Jailhouse Rock.
Today, the Piccadilly Theatre is home to Ghost the Musical.
