This descriptive gazetter looks, town by town, at all surviving theatres built between 1750 and 1950. It makes assesments of their quality, architecturally and theatrically and also assesses the potential of reopening some disused theatres. In addition to its critical assessment of more than 650 theatres, the guide contains details of hundreds of lost theatres and biographical notes on the principal theatre architects."
