Named after one of the main players in Covent Garden’s rich theatrical history, the actor David Garrick, the Garrick Theatre opened in 1889 thanks to the financial clout of another of the area’s stage legends—WS Gilbert of Gilbert & Sullivan.
These days the Garrick provides a Covent Garden staging post for a wide range of touring companies. Recent hits have included Kwame Kwei-Armah’s award-winning Elmina’s Kitchen, Rupert Everett in Pygmalion, Christian Slater in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest and Billie Piper in Treats.
