      Description

      The Edinburgh Playhouse started life as a cinema, first opening its doors to the public in 1929. Now a Grade A listed building, The Edinburgh Playhouse avoided closure and imminent demolition in the early 1970s by collecting 28,500 signatures voting against such action.

      In 1993, a major restoration project began that would ultimately see The Edinburgh Playhouse return to the splendour it embodied in its heyday. The Edinburgh Playhouse now stands as one of the most successful and highly regarded theatres in the UK - a stature which is evidenced by the long list of impressive acts and shows which have appeared there over the years; Kylie Minogue, Sting, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, U2, We Will Rock You, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Riverdance are just a few of those featured on The Edinburgh Playhouse over the years.
