A Little Bit About Drury Lane
Drury Lane takes its name from Sir Thomas Drury, who had a house there in Elizabeth I’s reign. It was a fashionable street in the 17th century but had become rowdy by the 18th dominated by prostitution and gin palaces. The first theatre opened in 1663. Nell Gwyn made her début in 1665. The theatre, burned down in 1672, and was rebuilt by Wren. Garrick made his début there in 1742, became manager, and passed it on to Sheridan in 1776. His new theatre, built by Holland in 1794, was burned down in 1809 while Sheridan was at a debate in the Commons. The replacement was by Benjamin Wyatt and, much restored, is the present building. In the 1890s the theatre was famous for Dan Leno’s pantomimes and in the 20th century for musicals.
The name of the street is often used to refer to the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane. The street Drury Lane is also where The Muffin Man lives as mentioned in the popular nursery rhyme. 173 Drury Lane was the location of the first J Sainsbury store, now one of the UK’s largest retailers. The store was opened in 1869
