Lloyd-Webber: West End Theatres At Disadvantage

Andrew Lloyd-Webber tells a parliamentary committee that London’s commercial theatres are at a big disadvantage to non-profit theatres. ” ‘We are not on a level playing field with the public sector’. He said central London’s theatres were crumbling while state-backed venues picked up grants to fund revamps.” There is a proposal to grant tax breaks to the theatres to help refurbish them.
