With its prime location on the Strand, the Adelphi has hosted some of the biggest new musicals and plays and most popular revivals in recent years, including Love Never Dies, The Bodyguard and One Man, Two Guvnors. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s team got into trouble for painting it black for Love Never Dies, due to its Grade II listed status, but personally I thought it looked very appropriate. There are often people camped out there on weekday mornings hoping to get returns for the latest show.
