The Apollo is one of the few theatres in London to be freehold. The only complete theatre design of architect Lewin Sharp, the Apollo was specifically designed for musical theatre and named after the Greek god of the arts and leader of the muses. Owing to the death of Queen Victoria the previous month, it became the first London theatre to be completed in the Edwardian period.
