Prince Edward Theater
The theater building was built in 1930 according to plans by the architect Edward A. Stone. The interior was designed by Marc-Henri Levy and Gaston Laverdet. The house, conceived as a multi-purpose theater, was to serve as a venue for musicals, revues and cinema screenings.
The Prince Edward Theater opened its theater on April 3, 1930 with a performance of the musical Rio Rita . On April 2, 1936, the house, renamed London Casino and converted into a cabaret restaurant, was reopened. During the Second World War , from July 1942 until the end of the war, the theater was renamed the Queensberry All Services Club as an entertainment club for members of the military. After the war, the name London Casino was reverted to and the old revue business was resumed. In 1954 the theater was converted into a cinema and from then on operated as the Castino Cinerama Theater .
After it was converted back into a theater in 1978, the house was given its original name Prince Edward Theater and opened with the world premiere of the musical Evita .
