London Theatre Report – the lowdown

London theatre report 2014 solt national London Theatre Report: a first for the industry
by -

London Theatre Report, the industry’s first major study into the size and scope of London Theatre, was published earlier this week. The report found that around £620 million is spent at the box office in London and that 22 million people came to see shows in 2012/13.

The Stage’s coverage of the report can be found here, and it has also been widely covered elsewhere, including in the Independent and by the BBC.

Below are some key findings from the report, which was written by The Stage’s Alistair Smith and co-commissioned by the National Theatre and the Society of London Theatre.
