The Aldwych and Strand Theatres where built as a pair on either side of the Waldorf Hotel. The theatre originally had 4 levels of seats, but now only 3 levels are used.

The theatre is associated with "The Aldwych Farces" - a series of farces by Ben Travers which played here from 1925 to 1933 as well as The Royal Shakespeare Company who made the Aldwych Theatre their home from 1960 to 1982 when the company then moved to the Barbican Theatre. More recent productions include a revival of Noel Coward's "Private Lives" with Joan Collins, the West End transfer of the award winning Royal National Theatre's production of JB Priestley's "An Inspector Calls", the critically applauded revival of Edward Albee's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (with Diana Rigg and David Suchet) and the critically panned - and short-lived - musical "The Fields of Ambrosia".
