Full Description
The Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the beating heart of London’s Covent Garden, is the oldest theatre in the world in continuous use. This delightful souvenir guidebook is packed with fascinating facts about the Theatre Royal and its many personalities, from actor-manager David Garrick, ‘the first modern superstar’, to Andrew Lloyd Webber, who saw his first musical here and has now restored the theatre to its Georgian glory. From iconic shows to the first pantomimes, from rituals and superstitions to royal fisticuffs, from performers, composers and playwrights to backstage crew, the rich and colourful history of London’s oldest theatre is brought to life.
