This sumptuous book which explores a selection of London theatres is a must for theatre lovers everywhere.
It does not confine itself simply to the West End but also takes in architectural gems such as the Theatre Royal Stratford East and the Hackney Empire. More intimate theatres like the Almeida and the Donmar are also included as well as hidden gems such as the Alexandra Palace Theatre.

I am grateful to John Kirkwood for reading and writing about this book
