Apollo TheatreThe first West End theatre of the Edwardian Age, the Apollo has a pleasingly over-the-top design that takes in facades, statuary, and a gypsy coat-of-arms that was intended to bring good luck. Vertigo sufferers may wish to know that the balcony at the Apollo is said to be the highest in London, a design that was intended to improve the acoustic for musicals. Playing host mainly to relatively small-scale shows rather than more obvious crowd-pullers, this compact theatre has never really established an important role in the West End, although there have been a few stand-out productions, notably, in 1989, Peter O'Toole's performance in Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell.
