Product Description

From the Publisher

A notable survivor in the turmoil of theatrical history, Glasgow`s Theatre Royal stands today as a symbol of what the city has become in the cultural life of Scotland.
It began with plays and pantomime, the brainchild of James Baylis, a book-keeper in a brewery who found his forte in the footlights, borrowing money to build his magnificent theatre at the top of Hope Street.
Graeme Smith has spared no effort in researching the ups and downs of a truly romantic tale.It is a gripping story, a splendid record that will take its prominent place in the history of Glasgow.

About the Author

GRAEME SMITH is an honorary research fellow of Strathclyde University, chartered accountant, and historian. For a period in the early 1990s he was a director of Scottish Opera and of the Theatre Royal. He assisted Ships for a Nation, the story of John Brown`s of Clydebank.

This book covered a lot of the history of the Theatre Royal from its conception until fairly recent times. It outlined the changes that have affected the Theatre both in relation to the building and the variety of performances that have taken place. There is a good selection of historical photographs too.
The Theatre continues to evolve and perhaps if there is a reprint it will include the most recent developments.
