Welcome to the Home Page of British Musical Theatre.
British Musical Theatre of the 1950s and 1960s is a unique archive of the productions, writers, performers and scores from the Golden Age of British Musicals.
Beyond this, the site also offers the best, most provocative and well-informed reviews of British (and many American) original cast recordings on LP and CD.
Following repeated requests it has been reinstated as an archive of material. It will remain as it is until such time as the authors are able to add to it.
Ever sat for hours trying to remember where that song came from ... which show ... what production ... when ... or 'what songs were there in that show? '

The Matchgirls was announced for a Broadway opening in the autumn of 1966, directed by Gillian Lynne, but it didn't happen. It was also announced in the early spring of 1966 that Strike a Light! (another musical about the matchgirls strike of 1888) would definitely not play London - presumably because The Matchgirls had got there first. Instead, Strike a Light! Would go directly to Broadway after its British tour.
