When the Sadler’s Wells Ballet (which was its name then) toured the USA in the post-War era I attended performances at the old Boston Opera House in Boston Massachusetts. I also went to performances of vintage musical shows which were presented from time to time at the theater. The performances I attended were very good and always sold out. I recall the huge orchestra pit there. The only drawback was the walk back to my hotel in Russell Square through dark, creepy streets. I agree with Ian’s post above- it seems to me that the old 1931 theater was demolished prior to building the present venue.

I believe that in 1998, the 1931 theatre was entirely demolished and replaced by the current building – any reuse of the 1931 structure was minimal in the extreme, if at all.
