Welcome to The Stage Archive
The Stage Directory (A London and Provincial Theatrical Advertiser) was founded by Maurice Comerford and Lionel Carson in February 1880 as a monthly newspaper. The first issue was 12 pages and priced 3d.
Today, the weekly newspaper and website cover a much more diverse entertainment and performing arts industry. The Stage has previewed, reviewed, monitored, reported and analysed performance across the UK entertainment industry for more than 125 years and over 6,500 issues. Its 170,000+ pages provide a rich and fascinating record of changing fortunes and fashion in the world of showbusiness.
