It's been condemned and saved many times - can the Epstein Theatre's new owner break the cycle?
Plus: the new Levelling Up white paper, and the rest of the mini-briefing
Dear members — in October it was reported that the famous old Epstein Theatre on Hanover Street was under new management. Again.
Three Liverpool producers — Bill Elms, Chantelle Nolan and Jane Joseph — have formed a joint venture to run the Epstein. Elms recently ended a successful West End run of his production about the man the theatre is named after, Brian Epstein. For today’s main story, Vicky Anderson caught up with Elms to ask him about his plans and what kind of shows we will be seeing in the months ahead.
Before that, we have a mini-briefing with the latest news on the government’s Levelling Up white paper and a Covid-19 update.
