The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 11 November 2012

It was announced last week that The Lowry in Salford was the winner of a Peter Brook Empty Space Award for the work done in its Studio to promote and develop new work and new artists. We speak to Studio programmer Porl Cooper to get his reaction to winning the award.

We have a look at a new book that looks at the structure and writing of musicals, Julian Woolford's How Musicals Work from specialist theatre book publishers Nick Hern Books, and also at the Christmas shows offered by the main theatres in Greater Manchester over the next couple of months.
