Theatre Royal: Still Finding a Way

The Theatre Royal (known currently as the Drury Lane Theatre) opened on this day in London’s Covent Garden district in 1663. The current structure is the fourth in a series of buildings which have housed theaters continuously at the location, making it the oldest theatre site in London. The theater in its various incarnations has housed such legends as David Garrick and Edmund Kean, such hits as Oklahoma and My Fair Lady, and is currently owned by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
