A  new theatre site from Clair Sedore:
 and will be, a work in progress. These webpages offer information on
theatres (current and demolished, renovated and abandoned)in the three
major  theatre cities of the world: New York, London, and Torontoas well as
other  important theatres throughout North America, The British Isles and
Europe.  It is an excellent site not only for theatre fans, but for
academics and  theatre students. You can spend minutes or days on your
research. Important  facts are featured for every theatre, and if known,
such things as seating  capacity, important plays, year built or
demolished.This research is  part of Clair's book, and of 50 years of
theatregoing in all corners of the  World. It is a work of love, and
hopefully some of it will rub off on our  future theatre fans! The site can
save you money on theatre tickets, will  let you know what is on in
principal cities, and can also help you plan a  holiday. Clair welcomes
your comments, help or criticisms at: 927121@ican.net.  { Clair Sedore.
