Repertory Theatre Birmingham

Birmingham Repertory Theatre - often called Birmingham Rep or just The Rep - is a theatre in Centenary Square, off Broad Street, Birmingham.
The theatre company was founded in 1913 in a building in Station Street, which is now now called The Old Rep. In 1971, the company moved to a new 900-seat venue in what is now Centenary Square. The theatre is undergoing redevelopment in 2011-2013 as part of the new Library of Birmingham.
