Waterloo – The Old Vic

When the National Theatre company was formed in 1963 under the direction of Sir Laurence Olivier (see previous post), it staged productions at the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo until a new theatre was built on the South Bank.

The Old Vic Theatre is one of London’s most historic theatre’s, first opening in 1818. The theatre was rebuilt in the early 1980s, copying the 1830 exterior and 1871 interior.
