The brand new theatre is set to open in Soho later this year.
Fawn James (director of Soho Estates) has announced the launch of the Boulevard Theatre in the heart of Soho in Walker’s Court. The revived venue is located on the site where her grandfather Paul Raymond opened the original Boulevard Theatre.
Designed by architects Soda Studio and theatre consultants Charcoalblue, the Boulevard Theatre will be headed up by the artistic director Rachel Edwards (Sweeney Todd – London & New York, Founder of Tooting Arts Club).
The theatre will contain a seated capacity of 165, producing its own in-house theatre productions together with a vibrant late night programme of live music, comedy, spoken word, cabaret and films. The venue and operations will be run by General Manager Leon Scott. Both will be supported by the Executive Director Martin Ball.
With the venue’s opening season of work to be announced soon, the theatre will be set to open to the public later this year.
The original Boulevard Theatre began as a sister venue to the Raymond Revuebar. It was run under the same name as the Revuebar and provided an additional bar and restaurant which housed gaming tables, prior to the gaming act in 1968. It presented a variety of productions including erotic, comedy and straight plays.
