Previously New Players Theatre. Founded in 1936 this theatre occupied several premises in the West End before locating to its present site under The Arches off Villiers Street below Charing Cross station. The current site was a famous Victorian music hall 'The Players'. It was refurbished in 2005 and taken under new management in 2006 nad reopened as 'The New Players Theatre'. It is one of the smallest West End Theatres, rebuilt to meet the demands of national and international producers wanting a theatre which offers a degree of intimacy and is the equivalent of an Off Broadway space. The Theatre then was taken under new management by Broadway producer Steven M. Levy and Sean Sweeney in 2011 and the theatre once again had its name changed to Charing Cross Theatre with the Players Bar & Kitchen.
