Since 1864, there has been a theatre under the arches at Charing Cross Station. Known throughout the years by several names - Gattis-in-The-Arches, The Players Theatre and the New Players Theatre, the theatre was rechristened the Charing Cross Theatre in January 2011 to mark the change in its ownership and the new era on which it was embarking.
Although the Music Hall tradition is still honoured with periodic Sunday performances, the Charing Cross Theatre has operated as a legitimate commercial theatre since 2002. The current management is committed to presenting affordable theatrical productions, while maintaining a collaborative atmosphere where seasoned professionals can work with emerging young talent.
Recent productions include 'The Exonerated'; 'Thrill Me'; the Broadway transfer of 'Ghetto Clown', starring John Leguizamo; 'Fascinating Aida'; 'Cheap Flights'; 'Facing the Music', starring Patricia Routledge; the world premiere of '6 Actors in Search of a Director', written and directed by Steven Berkoff, and most recently, the critically acclaimed West End revival of 'Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris'.
