The Palace Theatre, is a West End theatre in the City of Westminster. It is an imposing red-brick building that dominates the west side of Cambridge Circus, and is located near the intersection of Shaftesbury Avenue and Charing Cross Road.
Commissioned by impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte in the late 1880s, it was designed by Thomas Collcutt. Carte intended it to be the home of English grand opera, much as his Savoy Theatre had been built as a home for English light opera, beginning with the Gilbert and Sullivan series. The foundation stone, laid by his wife Helen in 1888, can still be seen on the fatade of the theatre, almost at ground level to the right of the entrance. The Palace Theatre's current capacity is 1,400.
