The history of theatre on the Strand in London dates back to the early 1700s. The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane was the first to be constructed, followed by the Adelphi Theatre and the Covent Garden Theatre. These theatres were initially used for plays and operas, but eventually became popular venues for concerts and other performances. Many of the original theatres in the area are still in operation today.
