Royal National Theatre

http://www.nt-online.org/?lid=7058

The official website of the Royal National Theatre. The archive section will be particularly useful to the theatre student as it enables you to obtain information on previous productions. At the moment this only includes performances since 1998 but the website also provides a documentary record of the Royal National Theatre since its inception in 1963. The Archive can also supply photocopies of the programme notes and the major reviews and associated articles about any past National Theatre production.

About Guide to the British Theatre

http://theater.about.com/

A superb websites for students of the British Theatre. Like other About Guides it includes extensive site reviews, feature articles and discussion areas.

Hackney Empire

http://www.hackneyempire.co.uk/

In 1901 the architect, Frank Matcham, modelled his design of Hackney Empire on the great Italian opera houses of the 18th century. However, the building also reflected the technology of the time by becoming Britain's first all electric theatre. Combining tradition and the latest developments in technology is also in evidence in this beautifully designed website. Its main feature is a history of the theatre and this can be viewed as a straight narrative or by using an animated timeline.

Thank you so much for the useful links.

Reminds me of the time I failed the drama class because the professor didn't like my comments on Godot! :)
