Summary
London's West End commercial theatre is a global success story, staging hit shows that have delighted millions of spectators and generated billions of pounds in revenue. In this book, Aleks Sierz provides a thematic surveys of popular theatre shows that were enormous commercial successes over the past 75 years. He argues that these outstanding hits express the dreamlife of the British people. They have a lot to say about the collective aspirations, fears and social, cultural and political attitudes of the country, and about how our national identity - and theatre's role in creating it - has evolved over the decades. The book spans a range of work from almost forgotten plays, such as R.F. Delderfield's 'Worm's Eye View' and Hugh Hastings's 'Seagulls Over Sorrento', to well-known successes, such as 'The Mousetrap' and 'The Phantom of the Opera'
