Title: Renewing Plays for Modern Audiences Revivals in London’s West End
Authors: Kato, Valerie

Abstract: During a 1996 London Study Abroad semester, I had the opportunity to sample different theatre productions performed in the West End between the months of January and July. The thirty-seven main West End Theatres produced an amazingly diverse set of approximately eighty different dramas, comedies, and musicals. Nonetheless, as I scanned the theatre listings throughout the semester, I realized that several productions were either revivals or shows that had run at the same location for years. Many times I found plays which had never died or faded away instead of premieres of plays that defined a regeneration of theatre for the nineties. Intrigued by this phenomenon, when I returned to Hawaii I began to research the history of London’s Theatres and their production trends over the last thirty years.
