Garrick Theatre history

From the outside

The Grade 1 listed Garrick Theatre is a magnificent building from the late 1800s complete with impressive pillars, a row of lovely round windows along the top and an impressive entranceway. Inside its luscious crimson walls and classical Greek-inspired circle decorations, all beautifully preserved, give it a real feel of theatrical tradition, a bit like going back in time.

Garrick Theatre architecture and history

David Garrick, after whom the Garrick is named, was a famously successful actor and manager in the 1700s who first came to London as a wine seller but soon found his spiritual home in the theatre, keeping a special place in his heart for the plays of William Shakespeare.

Commissioned by one W.S. Gilbert and designed by architect Walter Emden, the man behind the Duke Of York's theatre, in collaboration with C.J Philips, the Garrick Theatre was built specially for the well known and loved actor-manager John Hare in 1889. Once upon a time a river flowed beneath the site, which caused all manner of problems when the building was being built. These days the Underground has replaced the long-lost river so you’ll be safe and dry!

The interior décor is stunning, with pretty balcony fronts featuring cupids holding laurel-leaf decorated shields, a portrait of the famous actor Garrick and a bust of Shakespeare. Unusually, the Garrick’s dressing rooms are completely separate from the auditorium and actors have to navigate a spooky underground tunnel to reach the stage.

The Garrick saw various management teams come and go before shutting down between 1939 and autumn 1941. After the war, in 1947, the popular actor, singer and dancer Jack Buchanan took over and put on a series of very successful comedies. It was refurbished extensively in ‘65 and ’66, then again in 1986, when Carl Toms the expert stage designer restored the auditorium, at the same time giving the exterior a badly-needed face lift.

Over the decades the Garrick Theatre has been home to numerous household name actors including Dame Judi Dench, Rupert Everett, Christian Slater, Matt Damon, Casey Affleck and even Summer Phoenix.

Hauntings at the Garrick Theatre

A Mr Arthur Bourchier, a previous actor and manager at the Garrick who hated critics, apparently haunts the back of the theatre. He often appears after a performance and makes his presence felt by tapping unsuspecting people on the back!
