The Menier Chocolate Factory was originally constructed in the 19th century. After lying derelict since the 1980s, it returned to life as a full-time producing house in 2004. Today the factory contains a theatre, restaurant, bar and rehearsal space. The theatre continues to produce a mixture of musical and play revivals, new writing and comedy. The Menier Chocolate Factory has hosted several fantastic productions since its reopening in 2004. Many of these productions have ended up transferring to the West End or Broadway. Influential shows that the theatre has put on include the Stephen Sondheim musical Sunday in the Park with George. The production won five Olivier Awards and later transferred to Studio 54 on Broadway. As the theatre's shows are often influential, they don't just feature up-and-coming talent. Instead, the Menier Chocolate Factory can often be the place to catch A-List stars. In 2010 Catherine Zeta-Jones and Douglas Hodge starred in productions of A Little Night Music and La Cage Aux Folles. In addition to its theatre, the Menier Chocolate Factory's restaurant offers up a perfect place for a catch-up before and after a show in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant has a very popular meal deal which includes a two course meal and tickets for a show. You're not going to enjoy a sweeter evening than at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
