The Aldwych Theatre was acquired by the Nederlander Organization in 1982 after 21 years of ownership by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Nederlander Organization operates 9 theatres on Broadway and a further 15 across North America.

In London, we own and operate three theatres in the West End.  Our London theatres are the Aldwych Theatre, where Beautiful: The Carole King Musical has recently finished a two and half year run, the Adelphi Theatre, owned in conjunction with Really Useful Theatres, where the hit musical comedy Kinky Boots is currently playing and the Dominion Theatre where the critically acclaimed and multi-award winning Broadway musical, An American in Paris, inspired by the Oscar-winning film and featuring the timeless music and lyrics of George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin, is currently wowing audiences night after night.

Built in 1905, the Aldwych has housed many famous productions since its opening including the first performance of Chekhov’s  The Cherry Orchard  in England, A Streetcar Named Desire starring Vivien Leigh, Tom Stoppard’s Jumpers, Hapgood and Indian Ink all featuring Felicity Kendall, Tom and Clem  starring Sir Michael Gabon and Alec McCowen and Amy’s View with Dame Judi Dench.

In the 2000’s it became a popular musical theatre venue housing Fame, Dancing in the Streets and Dirty Dancing which became the longest running show at the Aldwych achieving five years at the theatre.

Notable productions in recent years have included Irving Berlin’s Top Hat as well as Wolf Hall and Bring up the Bodies both based on Hilary Mantel’s award winning books and most recently currently the Olivier award winning Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

We have a lot more theaters for you to look at in our directory.
