The Royal Comedy Theatre, as it was then known, opened on 15 October 1881. The theatre's reputation grew through the First World War when C.B. Cochran and André Charlot presented their famous review shows.
The range of work at the Comedy Theatre has been far reaching, from musical comedies to revival and experimental theatre and includes hugely successful shows such as Savages starring Paul Scofield in 1973 and The Rocky Horror Show making its West End debut in 1979. Alan Bennett has appeared with Patricia Routledge in his Talking Heads and Stockard Channing appeared in Six Degrees of Separation, which won best play at the 1993 Olivier Awards. No history of the Comedy Theatre would be complete without reference to Harold Pinter. The Homecoming, No-man's Land, Moonlight, The Hothouse and The Caretaker have all been presented in recent years.
Maureen Lipman has also graced the Comedy stage starring in Alan Plater's highly acclaimed comedy, Peggy For You, but The Comedy's two biggest successes must be The Caretaker starring Michael Gambon in 2000 and an eight week sell out of Little Malcolm and his Struggle Against the Eunuchs in 1999, starring Ewan McGregor and directed by Denis Lawson, which smashed all box office records.
