The Windmill Theatre (re-named The Windmill International in 1994), became a well-known theatre situated on Great Windmill Street in London, popular for the Revue and Variety style theatre performances.
Mrs. Laura Henderson bought the theatre in 1930 and renamed it the Windmill. After an inauspicious start, Mrs Henderson brought in a new manager, Vivian Van Damm, who moved the theatre toward a Parisian, Moulin Rouge style of entertainment. However, in England nudes were not allowed to move on the stage, thus the statue-style tableaux were created with much success for the next 30 years.
The Windmill Theatre was always proud to announce that it never closed during World War II.
