Theatre Royal Stratford East
Situated in the Stratford neighborhood, this restored Victorian theater produces an average of seven shows each year, as well as a pantomime and one-time events. Originally built in 1884, the theater features a large chandelier, six private boxes, and bright red seating on three levels, all of which offer excellent views of the gold proscenium arch stage. The venue showcases work by up-and-coming, culturally diverse playwrights, with an emphasis on musicals and interpretations of classic literature. Additionally, the on-site bar serves Caribbean-influenced cuisine and hosts free Monday night comedy shows, Sunday night poetry readings, and live music almost every night.
