The New Regency Theatre was a London theatre, active during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

History Edit

Henry Gordon Jago acquired the New Regency Theatre in the 1890s (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams), having sold the Palace Theatre as a result of the scandal following the Weng-Chiang incident in 1889 (PROSE: The Shadow of Weng-Chiang).

In the 1890s, the theatre was refurbished and renovated. (AUDIO: Higson & Quick)

Jago made phonograph recordings of certain performances at the theatre. (AUDIO: Changing of the Guard)

Jago owned the theatre until his death. Sometime later, the ballet Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was first performed at the New Regency Theatre. It was a huge success, selling out the theatre for months. (AUDIO: Swan Song)

At 8:47 p.m. on 12 October 1940, the theatre was destroyed in the Blitz during World War II, as was the hotel next to it. (AUDIO: Swan Song, Chronoclasm)

Théâtre de Fantasie Edit

Around the time when he was first given the theatre Mr. Jago was trapped in a dreamlike reality by the Théâtre de Fantasie. In this reality Queen Victoria attended a play at the theatre, fulfilling Jago's dream. (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams)
