PIN Piccadilly Theatre

The Pride of Picaddilly

It is located in Denman Street behind Piccadilly Street. Upon its opening it was said; If all the bricks used in the building were laid in a straight line, they would stretch from London to Paris.

More information

It was opened in 1928, with its first performance called, “Blue Eyes” which starred Evelyn Laye, one of the most acclaimed actresses of the time.
It was briefly taken over by Warner Brothers, and was used as a theatre. Then later was opened as a cabaret restaurant, and was not until after World War Two that it returned to being a theatre. Some of its shows include: Guys and Dolls, Grease, Dirty Dancing, Annie and now Jersey Boys.

Triptide Thoughts

The theatre is known to have a lot of character, and the staff to be very friendly. Jersey Boys is also a favourite, providing a great atmosphere and an overall wonderful performance. Apparently you are able to order drinks and food to your seats- which is a definite plus.

According to its website, Pleasance means:
1. a pleasure ground 2. a pleasant and secluded part of a garden. 3. a fundamental feeling that is hard to define but that people desire to experience
