The Aldwych Theatre was built in 1905, on the then recently constructed Aldwych, and has ornate, Georgian-style decorations. It was a pair with the Waldorf Theatre, now known as the Novello Theatre, and both had W.G.R. Sprague as their designer. The premiere was Blue Bell, a new production of the successful Hicks’ drama Bluebell in Fairyland. The theatre then presented The Beauty of Bath, also by Hicks, in 1906, followed by The Gay Gordons, in 1907.

The Aldwych Theatre is one of many London theatres that are reputed to be haunted. Other noteworthy productions that have been presented at this West End theatre include The Devils, The Collection, The Fields of Ambrosia, Tolstoy, The Greeks, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Boys in the Band, Whistle Down The Wind, The Wars of the Roses, Fame - The Musical, Nicholas Nickleby, Dirty Dancing - The Classic Story on Stage, and many Shakespeare plays.

The Aldwych Theatre is at 49 Aldwych, in Westminster, London, WC2B 4DF, and has been designated a Grade II listed building since 1971. It has quite a big auditorium that seats 1,200 on 3 levels, and the closest public transport link is the London Underground at Covent Garden.
