London Theatres


Dazeley’s 2nd edition ‘London Theatres’ is about recording London’s wonderful theatre heritage as it stands in the 21st Century. The book contains 53 London Theatres, from the Grandes Dames of the West End to some of London’s smaller gems.

Like no other book, London Theatres offers a unique front-of-house and behind-the-scenes overview of the capital’s world-class theatrical spaces. The book is brought to life with leading theatre critic Michael Coveney’s stories of the theatres’ architecture and productions. Peter is also incredibly grateful to Sir Mark Rylance for writing such a wonderful foreword for the book, describing the interaction between the artist and the theatre space.

London Theatres is published by Frances Lincoln and is available to order from all good bookshops and Amazon & Waterstones online.
