Theatre Royal
The first theatre building on Drury Lane was designed by Sir Christopher Wren in the seventeenth century, since when it has undergone several incarnations on the same site in London's Covent Garden. Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber selected us to revivify the grand old building, opening up the front of house spaces, making new connections to the teeming life of the streets outside, providing a warmer welcome for the audience, better conditions for actors and staff and upgrading technical systems. We are making subtle but important improvements to the auditorium alongside these changes. Here the issue is as much subtractive as additive - making deft, carefully targeted moves that will clear away the accumulated clutter of past centuries and once again reveal the clarity and intent of the original architecture.
