The Philanthropist

Sunday Times

Christopher Hampton’s most celebrated play has been delighting audiences and since its premiere at the Royal Court in 1970. A biting ‘bourgeois comedy’ and a fiendishly clever inversion of Moliere’s ‘The Misanthrope’, Simon Callow’s new production boasts some of today’s most exciting young stage and screen actors.

Designed by Edward Stone. This Theatre opened on 29th September 1930 with "The Way to treat a Woman"by Walter Hackett.

Formerly the Whitehall Theatre, Trafalgar Studios is two new theatre studios under one roof in the heart of the London's West End. Opening with the RSC's production of Othello at the end of May, the larger space has approximately 380 seats. Othello was followed by the Watermill Theatre's acclaimed production of Sweeney Todd.

Architects Tim Foster and John Muir have created two new intimate and dynamic theatre spaces that will inject a new energy and excitement into the venue and into the West End allowing The Ambassador Theatre Group to host a much wider range of entertainment than has previously been possible in commercial theatre.

The Whitehall theatre opened in 1930 with a transfer of The Way to Treat a Woman by Walter Hackett (also the theatre's licensee). He presented several more highly successful plays of his own until leaving in 1934, and the theatre continued to build its reputation for popular modern comedies throughout the 1930s. During the war this tried and tested formula was rejected in favour of revue shows, which were all the rage elsewhere in London's West End. In 1942, The Whitehall Follies was launched, featuring a non-stop performance by Phyllis Dixey - audiences flocked in, mostly due to the fact that the celebrated Miss Dixey was famous for being the first stripper in the West End!
