Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tourist Boom Provides Bonanza For Theatres By CAROL KENNEDY LONDON (CP) The tour- ist boom of 3970 is proving a bonanza at West End box-oft-' ices. Almost every theatre has been selling out nightly and even at mid-week matinees in what is normally the quietest period of the year. "I cannot remember such a boom for the theatre as that going .on says Toby Rowlandson, president of the IN CALGARY STAY AT THE ATLANTA MOTEL WHERE YOU ARE A STRANGER .ONLY ONCEI 9 45 Modern and Deluxe Units Bridal Suite 0 Free TV and !co Dial Phones in all units Minutes from Downtown- Shopping Stampede Grounds Moderate Rates Phone 243-4651 3630 MACLEOD TRAIL Society of West End Mana- gers. Most of the eager customers lining' up in ticket agencies are Americans agog to catch up with tte latest productions at bargain prices compared to Broadway. July and August are usually torpid months in Shaftesbury Avenue when managers de- part for Mediterranean beaches and theatres are half-empty. Far from opening new plays in the summer, some theatres used to close down in August. This sum- mer, however, there have been several major first nights and out-of-town or sub- urban productions including the nude revue Oh! Calcutta! have had to wait in line for West End theatres.

The fall montls promise even richer theatrical fare with new plays by Terence Ralligan and Robert Bolt, both on historical themes. Rattigan's play, A Bequest to the Nation, deals with Admi- ral Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton and offers some in- triguing new insights into the hero of Trafalgar. It opens Sept. 14 at the Haymarket Theatre. Bolt's new work, Viral! Viral opening in Oc- tober, revolves around Mary, Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I of England and stars his actress wife Sarah Miles as Mary. Bolt's last big historical success on the Lon- don stage was A Man For All Seasons, subsequently made into a lavish movie with its original star Paul Scofield as tba martyred Sir Thomas More. A renowned name from the post-war stage, verse-drama- tist Christopher Fry, is also back on the scene with A Yard of Sun, his first play since The Dark is Light Enough, written in 1954. Set in Siena, Italy, immediately after the Second World War, A Yard of Sun completes the quartet of poetic dramas Fry began with The Lady's Not for Burning in 1919. RANGE IS VARIED Rarely has the London stage offered such a varied range of entertainment. Audi- ences are pouring enthusiasti- cally into such contrasting shows as The Great Waltz, a lS30s-style exercise in Vien- nese nostalgia to the music of Johann Strauss; Kenneth Tyn- an's erotic frolic Oh! Cal- soon to transfer to the Royalty Theatre in central London; and Somerset Maugham's Edwardian drama Lady Frederick, which first saw curtain-up in 1908.
