Prince Edward TheatreThe Prince Edward Theatre was designed by Edward Stone and opened in 1930 with a performance of the musical Rio Rita. Just a few years later, the space was converted into a dance and cabaret hall, and was renamed the London Casino. After a few more name changes, the building was turned back into a theatre, re-christened with its original name, and opened in 1978 with the world premiere of the smash hit Evita. Other big hits staged here include Mamma Mia! and Mary Poppins .
