Backstage Tours at the Duke of York's

News   Backstage Tours at the Duke of York's

The Duke of York's Theatre, currently home to hit comedy Stones In His Pockets, was where the original production of James Barrie's Peter Pan took place in 1904 and - less ethereally - where theatre union Equity held its inaugural meeting.

Now the Duke of York's is joining larger theatres - like the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, and the London Palladium - with its own backstage tour, which has plenty (as theatres tend to do) of ghostly goings-on to relate: a costume that tried to kill; an iron door which is heard to slam shut each night - even though it no longer exists; the woman who dominated the building for over three decades, whose ghost is still seen in the theatre.

The tour begins at 12 noon and lasts 75 minutes.
