Though it may still be best known as the host of the annual World Snooker Championship, the Crucible is now also recognized as an important national theatre. Touring companies such as the National Theatre Company play either here or at the neighboring Lyceum Theatre. The Crucible complex is Sheffield's answer to London's Barbican Center and also houses the Crucible Studio, where more experimental work is shown.
