Her Majesty's Theatre

Her Majesty's Theatre is on Haymarket in London's West End. The building was built in 1897 for the actor-manager Herbert Beerbohm Tree, who later went on to establish the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), one of the most prestigious acting schools in the world.

The theater changes its name depending on the sex of the monarch. It was Her Majesty's Theatre from 1837 until 1901, when it became His Majesty's Theatre until 1952, when Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne. The theater has been home to Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera since 1986.
