Trafalgar Studios 1

The most electrifying new venue in London, Trafalgar Studios has two distinctive, dynamic and intimate stages, Studio One and Studio Two, housed in the former Whitehall Theatre. Constructed where the 17th-century Ye Old Ship Tavern once stood, Whitehall Theatre was designed by Edward A. Stone and had Art Deco-style interiors. It opened in 1930, and its premiere was Walter Hackett’s The Way to Treat a Woman. It had a chequered history of revues, plays and striptease shows, as well as a 22-year run of farces known as the Whitehall Farces.

Today, Trafalgar Studios serves as a launching pad for new performances seeking a home in London’s West End. Architects John Muir and Tim Foster designed Trafalgar Studios, and the larger of the two, Studio One, seats 380, and opened in 2004 with a production of Othello by the Royal Shakespeare Company, while Studio Two, which seats 100, opened in 2005 with Cyprus.

Other notable productions presented at Trafalgar Studios are Shoot the Crow, The Old Country, Bent, Sweeney Todd and Jane Eyre. The theatre has been a Grade II listed building since 1996, and is located at 14 Whitehall, London, SW1A 2DY. The closest public transport is Charing Cross station.
