The Sondheim Theatre originally opened as the Queen's Theatre in 1907 and is situated on the famous Shaftesbury Avenue, where many other major West End theatres are located. The theater was originally named for its builder, English-born actor-producer Henry Miller; since 2010, it has been named for composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim. The theatre has housed legendary musical Les Misérables since 2004, which transferred to the venue from the Palace Theatre and remains one of the must-see shows in the West End. When the theatre reopened in 2019, a new production of Les Misérables was introduced, with updated staging and more modern direction.
