The remarkable diversity of entertainment on offer and the incomparable gifts of English actors are internationally renowned, but it is in the buildings themselves that the long rich history of the theatre is to be found. From the imposing classical grandeur of Drury Lane to the functional modernism of the National Theatre, poised on the edge of the Thames, the development of the theatre can be seen in architecture and decor. The book brings you a lively and informative account of the buildings, and of the plays and players who have graced their stages, and contains a wealth of illustration, largely in colour. 24.
