- Where is Andrew Lloyd Webher's bank? - Where did Agatha Christie live? - Where is the monument to Shakespeare's First Folio? - Where was Nahum Tate buried? - Who was Nahum Tate anyway and why should any self-respecting theatre buff care? Jim DeYoung doesn't simply tell you the answers to these tantalizing questions, he takes you to their source in his entertaining and unavoidably educational book, LONDON THEATRE WALKS. DeYoung guides you through the streets of London with authority, humor, and relish; he escorts you to the site of the long buried Globe to the newly remodeled Lyceum theatre, from Shakespeare to Les Miserables. Stand and behold the original inspirations for some of the most famous plays in the English language. Visit the trysting spots of London's greatest actors and actresses. Walk home from the theatre with England's greatest playwrights. When you have followed these dozen easy-to-follow tours, you will have visited the best theatres of the most theatrical city in the world: London! Your escapades will be filled with enough detail to satisfy the most curios scholar but with enough juicy gossip and colorful legend to entertain every theatre fan. Detailed maps accompany each tour. And whether you only have an hour or you want to spend the day, LONDON THEATRE WALKS has a fascinating walk in store for you. Each walk starts and finishes at a well-known London landmark. In fact, you are never far from the main sightseeing pleasures of the city. Public transportation will get you to your starting point and back to your hotel again. And your tour guide, Jim DeYoung, doesn't believe in walking with parched throats. He points out dozens of theatrical wateringholes along the way!
