The Duke of York’s is a stunning building with delicate arches and decorative columns, built for Frank Wyatt and his wife Violet Melnotte and opening for business in 1892 as the Trafalgar Square. In 1894 its name changed to the Trafalgar and a year later it was re-christened the Duke of York's in honour of King George V. Over the years it has featured top class ballets, earning a name as the theatre that brought ballet to fame in Britain. In the late ‘70s Capital Radio bought the freehold and 1979 saw it shut for refurbishment. In 1980 it re-opened with Rose, starring Glenda Jackson. Al Pacino won awards there for his performance in American Buffalo, Richard Harris' comedy Stepping Out created a stir, as did Willy Russell's ever-popular play Shirley Valentine. The Ambassador Theatre Group bought the venue in 1992 and it has thrived ever since, with shows like The Holy Terror, Dirty Blonde, The Dresser and Hedda Gabler. Want Duke of York’s Theatre tickets?
