The Novello was built as one of a pair with the Aldwych Theatre on either side of the Waldorf Hotel, both being designed by W.G.R. Sprague. The theatre opened as the Waldorf Theatre on May 22, 1905, and was renamed the Strand Theatre in 1909. It was again renamed as the Whitney Theatre in 1911 before again becoming the Strand Theatre in 1913. In 2005, the theatre was renamed by its owners (Delfont-Mackintosh) the Novello Theatrein honour of Ivor Novello.
The Novello Theatre was extensively refurbished in 1930 and again in the early 1970s. For its 100th anniversary in 2005, the theatre underwent yet another extensive refurbishment. The current capacity is around 1,050. The theatre reopened on 8 December 2005 with the Royal Shakespeare Company's annual London season.
Currently at the Novello Theatre London is the West End production of Mamma Mia!, which has had over 40 million people dancing in the aisles around the world and continues to sell out as one of the most loved shows around.
