London's West End Theatres 'not fit for purpose'

Howard Panter, Chief Executive of the Ambassador Theatre Group has said that most theatres in London's West End are 'not fit for purpose' . Mr Panter's comments come after the recent collapse of the ceiling at London's Apollo Theatre and Mr Panter, whose group controls over 40 venues in the UK including 11 venues in London, said that many London theatres were over 100 years old and not equipped to deal with modern audiences and modern productions, joining with Andrew Lloyd Webber who has also previously commented on 'shocking' state of many theatres and who had been calling for the demolition and rebuilding of the Apollo before the roof collapse.
