The Bridge Theatre is a commercial theatre building near Tower Bridge in London that opened in October 2017. It was developed by Nick Starr and Nicholas Hytner as the home of the London Theatre Company, which they founded following their tenancy as executive director and artistic director, respectively, at the National Theatre.
The theatre seats 900 and is a flexible space to accommodate each production. For example, the opening production, Young Marx, featured a traditional proscenium arrangement, Julius Caesar had the stalls seating removed to be in promenade and allow the audience to be part of the mob within the play, and Nightfall was performed on a thrust stage. It was reported that the theatre had cost £12million to build.
