Lyceum Theatre

Samuel Beazley


Wellington Street, Strand

"This is one of the prettiest houses in London, and while large enough to enable the poetical drama, even in the case of the heaviest Shaksepeare play, to be effectively mounted, is not too large for the requirements of modern audiences. . . .Lobby accommodation is on an unusually handsome scale. The convenience and safety of the public, as well as the beauty of the house, were greatly enhanced by the extensiove alterations, which have been made by Mr. Irving at various times." — Dickens's Dictionary of London 1888, p. 154.
