Cambridge TheatreThe Cambridge Theatre is a 1930s design classic in the Art Deco style, with smooth, sparsely decorated curves and two stunning gold murals. Its simplicity is belied by a long history of bizarre and spectacular productions, from the West End's first ice dancing (John Curry's Theatre of Ice), through the high-camp of Return to the Forbidden Planet to the all-singing, all-dancing Ku Klux Klan members in Jerry Springer, the Opera. In its time, this dignified auditorium has played host to a cinema, an opera company, the Comedie Francaise, the National Theatre, a magic show and some of the most important figures in theatre. John Mortimer's first play The Wrong Side of the Park (1960) was produced here, Albert Finney first made his name here, Jonathan Miller directed Laurence Olivier in The Merchant of Venice (1970) here, and Bruce Forsyth and Tommy Steele had some of their biggest stage musical hits on this very stage. Quite a pedigree.
