The Criterion Theatre was built and completed in 1873 and has been part of the heart of Piccadilly Circus/Regent Street ever since they opened their doors
Many productions have been shown here including productions from the reduced Shakespeare Company and many more. The theatre has evolved and even now lends itself to auditions for the likes of Pop Idol to the present running show called the 39 Steps.. The theatre has a capacity of approx 588 and retains a well preserved Victorian auditorium with an intimate atmosphere. The Fabric of the building has been kindly restored and adapted to accommodate the requirements of a 21st century audience, but keeping a lot of the original materials, tiles and mirrors etc.
PCS provides a team of cleaners who clean in the morning, but are flexible should there be additional matinees they will stay additional hours to prepare the theatre. The products used for the cleaning, have been carefully selected to compliment the different building fabrics of old and new and the cleaners are trained in alternative cleaning methods so that these original building materials are kept to the pristine conditions they have been for a last 100 years and more. Specialist cleans to the large antique mirrors which can be found throughout the theatre are carried out by PCS fulltime staff. These fulltime staff are also used for periodic cleans to seating, carpets and floors and any High Level Cleaning which is required to the auditorium and stage areas.
