Wyndham's opened on 16 November with a revival of David Garrick by T W Robertson in which the theatre's owner Charles Wyndham and his future wife, Mary Moore, both appeared. The theatre was designed by the architect W G R Sprague in the Louis XVI style. Gerald du Maurier became actor-manager of Wyndham's for more than a decade. Some of his most famous roles were in Raffles and Bull-Dog Drummond. The original theatre plans included a winter garden on the roof. The Council refused permission for this, but it was used once for a rehearsal of a charity performance of J M Barrie's The Admirable Crichton at which G B Shaw was also present. Tallulah Bankhead was the talk of London when she made her debut in The Dancers written by Gerald du Maurier and Viola Tree. Her most famous scene was one in which she performed an Indian dance costumed in feathers and jewels.
