Trafalgar Square

The Duke of York's Theatre is a London West End Theatre in St Martin's Lane, in the City of Westminster. The Duke of York's Theatre was built for Frank Wyatt and his wife, Violet Melnotte, who retained ownership of the theatre, until her death in 1935.

The theatre opened on 10 September 1892 as the Trafalgar Square Theatre, with Wedding Eve. Designed by architect Walter Emden, the theatre became known as the Trafalgar Theatre in 1894 and the following year became the Duke of York's to honour the future King George V.

Today, the Duke Of Yorks Theatre is the London headquarters of the Ambassador Theatre Group, forming part of their portfolio of eight venues. It is also the producing offices of Sonia Friedman Productions, whose revival of In Celebration starring Hollywood leading man Orlando Bloom played until 15 Sep 2007.

The theatre was Grade II listed by English Heritage in 1960.
