London Blue Badge Guide Diane Burstein takes you on a virtual tour of theatreland treating you to historical vignettes and anecdotes about some of our famous theatres. Discover how theatre developed from the Elizabethan playhouses of Bankside and Shoreditch, through the rise of restoration drama in Convent Garden to the West End’s Victorian and Edwardian theatres. Bringing things up to date we’ll discover the birth of the Fringe, Off West End and socially distanced performances! The illustrated talk will include stories about theatrical personalities, superstitions and traditions.
