Some of the capital's lesser known theatres are at risk of closing unless more is done to help them survive, according to a new report from the London Assembly.
Almost half of London's 105 smaller venues feel insecure about their financial future, while more than a third are anxious that their venue might be sold to developers.
The report, named 'Centre Stage, will set out an action plan to help protect small theatres from closure.
Recommendations include appointing a new ambassador for small theatres and allowing venues to advertise on public transport by replacing out of date posters or filling empty spaces.
