OPINION - London theatre is stronger than ever — and now better than New York in one key respect

  • Of course, seasonal offerings like the famous Palladium panto close this month on schedule, as do fixed-run “events” with big stars like our Old Friends, starring Broadway’s Bernadette Peters, and the extraordinary Sunset Boulevard with Nicole Scherzinger. While new-built theatres across the country — foolishly constructed with cheap RAAC — have closed and struggled to reopen, the Victorian and Edwardian theatres of London — lovingly restored and nurtured over decades by a handful of private individuals — continue to stand proud.
