Novello TheatreBuilt in 1905 to form a pair with the near-identical Aldwych Theatre, the Novello Theatre (formerly known as the Strand Theatre) is one of London's more spectacular theatres and has matching roster of hit shows. An attractive columned exterior gives way to a gorgeous foyer and auditorium, with marble, polished brass and gold the dominant materials and gods and cupids sprawled across every available surface. Frankie Howerd appeared here in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1960), which ran for two years and became one of the few plays to have a spin-off TV series - the hugely successful Up, Pompeii!. Michael Crawford made his name at the Strand with a ten-year run of No Sex Please, We're British. British premieres have included works by Chekhov and Tom Stoppard, while Maureen Lipmann, Felicity Kendall, Joseph Fiennes and Imogen Stubbs have all appeared here in recent years. It was at this theatre (as The Strand) that Buddy became the most successful rock and roll musical of all time with 5,140 performances between 1996 and 2002.
