A note from the author

We put this AVMovie together (a compilation of still photos and video clips) to show off London theatres as they are seen most often by theatre goers – by night.


Thanks to Ben Shafik for his lighthearted and  informative commentary and Fionn O'Lochlainn for the original music.

Watch out for the new version with current liveries and the names of the theatres as they appear.

Baxter
This is a musical with a score that is clever and sophisticated, in watlz time.  It is is based on the film Smiles of a Summer Night, by Ingmar Bergman. It takes place in Sweden in the 19th Century and revolves around affairs of the heart which are the prevailing theme of the play. It has been called a  'stylish celebration of romance'.

Story
It tells of the long passion of a aging lawyer for his bride who refuses to consummate the marriage for nine years although she loves him. It centres on the affairs between the members of the house and focuses on the character - the actress Desiree Armfeldt – the  tangled web of intrigue that surrounds her features the classic “Send in the Clowns”. There are many stories that unfold in a brilliantly written score. They are energetically performed. The musical line up is very impressive.
