London to inaugurate a Sondheim theatre

The Stage reports that the West End’s Queen’s Theatre will be renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, when its refurbishment is completed in December.

Cameron Mackintosh, the theatre owner, said: ‘For the past 25 years I have tried to build a studio theatre in central London named after Sondheim…’

The theatre is home to the long-running musical Les Miserables.

  • English Heritage listed buildings should also protect the original name of the theatre. Queen Alexandra will be turning in her grave.

  • If I were Sondheim, I’d be appalled at the current occupant. Let’s hope something more appropriate eventually takes the place of Les Mis.
