“The successor to Gaiety (i) (q.v.) was built on a corner site between the new cut of the Aldwych and the newly widened Strand. It opened in 1903 under George Edwardes’s management, continuing the musical comedy policy of the old house and presenting its established stars, including Gertie Miller, Connie Ediss, Ada Reeve and George Grossmith Junior, ensuring that the new house would be a success from the start.”
The Cinema Theatre Association (CTA) have asked me to speak at their monthly meeting in London. March 28th, 2020. This is my first overseas talk. It will add to my reputation as a theatre historian.
I have started a GoFundMe campaign to extend my stay, conducting research and visiting historic theatres.
Research will be used for future talks, essays, articles, etc. The theatres visited recorded and shared on social media.
Funds collected will go directly to travel within the UK, accommodations, food and everyday expenses.
