While forming part of the Overtures Archive, this important archive is, in the main, kept intact. Before Dan came to Islington with a vision there was hardly a ‘Fringe’ in London. New York had its ‘Off-Broadway’ but London had just a few small playing areas.
1970 saw the change in that and over 35 years Dan made pub theatre an intrinsic part of London Theatre scene. His love of the musical and revue brought important revivals and retrospects. Dan was a dynamic force in the working of London’s theatre scene and the only thing he never conquered was the leaking roof.
