A classic viewing of all the Theatreland play houses by night. The authentic commentary, by Ben Shafik - a player himself - gives an authentic feel to the West End's theatres - and is backed by real music.
Next version will be more upbeat as, suggested, to celebrate Britannia's unbeatable heritage.
(Over 6000 viewings and all good reviews to date).

A note from the author

I took these pictures to show off London theatres as they are seen -most often - by theatre goers, at 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.




Two of the world's greatest living actors James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave - are together in Alfred Uhry's classic. Its a great occasion to see a charming funny classic that has delighted for so long.

Driving Miss Daisy

Ageless story of a friendship over many many years between an obdurate Southern matron with matriarchical leanings and her friendly, loving black driver who takes his place and his hat seriously. Set in Atlanta Georgia from 1948 to 1973

Changing times helped to transform their friendship and the transformative power of their love for each other has lifted the hearts and spirits of men, women and children everywhere - and the children? The theatre says over tens and that is based on....What I wonder?

Driving Miss Daisy

The age police are awful silly billies. The play Driving Miss Daisy is being performed for the first time - that is - on a London stage.

It is said by 'What's On?' that the show boasted "this year's hottest theatre tickets" And its a limited season so better book.
