Mhora Samuel: Nick Starr is wrong about the West End

19th November 2015

Mhora Samuel, Director of The Theatres Trust, has written an opinion article for The Stage, with the reasons why she disagrees with Nick Star’s opinion regarding the West End.

“I applaud what Starr and Nicholas Hytner hope to achieve with the new theatre [on Potters Fields]. That they have plans for many more theatres can only help to add to the capital city’s diverse theatre offer. But I do take issue with his conclusions about the state of theatres in the West End.

At The Theatres Trust’s annual conference earlier this year, it was concluded that theatres are valued because they help make places – they give them life, identity, soul. None more so than those in the West End of London – which also generates more than £2 billion for the British economy and is a magnet for tourists, domestic visitors and theatregoers of all backgrounds and tastes. The Victorian and Edwardian theatres that are home to award-winning contemporary plays, long-running musicals and the best of British talent are some of the best-equipped in the country. These historic proscenium arch theatres are to be found not only in the West End but across the breadth of the country and continue to provide the backbone of our touring circuit.”
