The individual episodes (one per All Region DVD) vary in length, between 42 minutes and 80 minutes and feature in-depth interviews with some of the biggest names in British theatre. Sir Ian McKellen, Steven Berkoff, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Martin Shaw, Michael Ball and Simon Callow are just a few of the stars who, through a fund of amusing stories and vivid anecdotes, demonstrate their deep affection for the great theatres of London. Great West End Theatres is the first series of its kind to document all 40 of London's theatres and is available on individual All Region DVDs. A carefully researched and well-written history of the best London has to offer, it is also a backstage pass onto the finest stages in the world. Written by Steve Spence See less
