Built in 1897 Her Majesty’s is a Victorian playhouse with 1,145 seats over 4 levels – Stalls, Dress Circle, Grand Circle and Balcony.
Supporting pillars result in some restricted views and the Balcony is far back but the relationship between stage and audience makes it a suitable house for both musicals and plays.
The proscenium arch and box fronts have been covered by Maria Bjornson’s set recreating the Paris Opera House for The Phantom of the Opera but original plaster features are still visible elsewhere giving the auditorium a dignity and grace well matched by the subtle pink tones of the paint finishes.
When the great Herbert Beerbohm Tree built Her Majesty's theatre he designed the space under the copper dome as his personal residence and work space. The rear section was furnished as a comfortable flat to escape the pressures of actor-management whilst the larger space under the dome was perfect for entertaining post-show guests and for holding meetings and rehearsals.
It was here that Tree began the drama training for young actors which eventually grew into today's Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.
