London Theater Museum to close January 7

The Theatre Museum in London is scheduled to be closed to the public January 7, 2007 it is due to a lack of financing for redevelopment. It is shaky when and where the collection will reopen. It is a tragedy that one of the world’s largest collections of documents and artifacts related to theater, dance, opera and other performances will no longer be available to enrich and educate the public.

The Theatre Museum was opened in its premises in Russell Street, Covent Garden, in 1987. It is a collection comprised of the theatre collections held in the Victoria and Albert Museum, notably that of Gabrielle Enthoven, and at Leighton House.

There is an online petition collecting names to save the museum on a website run by an organization called Guardians of the Theater Museum at
