Step Backstage into London’s Great Theatres 
A new book by acclaimed actor Simon Callow and expert photographer Derry Moore has been released today.
 
The pair have chosen 28 theatres to unpick in rich detail, including The Old Vic, The Adelphi, The Apollo Victoria, the Hackney Empire, Wilton’s Music Hall and the Royal Court among many others.
The publication is filled with exquisite photography by Derry Moore, alongside engaging and witty insights from Simon Callow, who reveals his expansive knowledge of each theatre’s history, from the stars who tread the boards to the number of times a theatre has been demolished and rebuilt more beautifully than before.
“It must be such fun going to the theatre with Simon Callow. He is entranced by the history of the London stage and has a sharp eye for its setting. Reading this handsome book is guaranteed to enrich any West End outing.” – Country Life Magazine
