Garrick TheatreNamed after the great 18th century actor-manager David Garrick, whose portrait hangs in the foyer bar, The Garrick is a fantastic piece of late-Victorian kitsch, originally financed by WS Gilbert. The interior is decorated like a Renaissance palace, all cupids and laurels, with hardly a smooth surface visible among all the moulding, gilt and classical statues. In recent years this venue has played host to a number of hugely popular shows including the Lieutenant of Inishmore and Tommy Cooper tribute Jus' Like That. Since long-running drama An Inspector Calls moved out in 2001, The Garrick has proved to be something of a magnet for Hollywood starlets, including Jake Gyllenhaal and Anna Paquin in Kenneth Lonergan's celebrity brat-fest This is Our Youth and Julia Stiles in David Mamet's Oleanna.
