Man in Grey - WC2: Drury Lane Theatre Royal - Prior to a long running show - Seeing this ghost, dressed in a long grey coat with a Tricorn hat, is considered a good omen; if it appears either in the morning or afternoon during rehearsals then the performance goes on to be a great success. King Charles II is also supposed to haunt the building (he was a great theatre lover), as does the shade of Joe Grimaldi who helps anyone struggling with their lines. Finally, the backstage corridors are home to the wraith of Charles Macklin, a murderer who was never found guilty, and now walks the scene of his crime.
