Show must go on: Andrew Lloyd Webber guides Charles and Camilla around refurbished theatre

Show must go on: Andrew Lloyd Webber guides Charles and Camilla around refurbished theatre

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were given a tour showcasing the £60 million renovation of a London West End theatre by its owner, Andrew Lloyd Webber, on Wednesday.

The couple toured the renovated Theatre Royal Drury Lane with Lord Lloyd Webber, his wife Madeline and Simon Thurley, the chairman of the Lloyd Webber Theatre Restoration Project. The theatre now boasts the biggest stage in London.

Touring the auditorium, Charles asked when Frozen, a stage adaptation of the hit Disney film, would be able to open.

Referencing the continued setbacks caused by the Covid pandemic, Lord Lloyd Webber joked: "Probably 2040," to which Charles replied: "It's what we call 'put on ice'."

The couple enjoyed a brief afternoon tea on the balcony before unveiling a plaque to commemorate the revamp.

Lord Lloyd Webber has announced plans to mark the "triumphant and hopeful return of live music, theatre and entertainment" with a UK tour and album.
