Lottery money has led to massive building of theatres in Britain. But “theatre isn’t about bricks and mortar – or, these, days, concrete and glass. It’s about what happens on that stage inside. It’s about imagination, about content and about ideas. The heresy that a new building was more important than a new idea began about a generation ago. The glamorous, if sometimes tacky, Edwardian music halls were pulled down. Lottery money made this obsession with rebuilding even worse.” – London Evening Standard
