Henry Gordon Jago acquired the New Regency Theatre in the 1890s (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams), having sold the Palace Theatre as a result of the scandal following the Weng-Chiang incident in 1889 (PROSE: The Shadow of Weng-Chiang).
Jago owned the theatre until his death. Sometime later, the ballet Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was first performed at the New Regency Theatre. It was a huge success, selling out the theatre for months. (AUDIO: Swan Song)
At 8:47 p.m. on 12 October 1940, the theatre was destroyed in the Blitz during World War II, as was the hotel next to it. (AUDIO: Swan Song, Chronoclasm) Another building was eventually constructed on the site. (AUDIO: Swan Song)
Théâtre de Fantasie Edit
About a month after he was first given the theatre, Jago was trapped in a dreamlike reality by the Théâtre de Fantasie. In this reality, Queen Victoria attended a play at the theatre, fulfilling Jago's dream. (AUDIO: The Theatre of Dreams)
