West End needs US stars

Sir Peter Hall, veteran theatre director, has admitted that West End success is becoming almost impossible without a US star in the cast.

Unfortunately, Sir Peter says, not all the star imports are able to cut it.
"There are a lot of people we think of as stars in television who haven't been on the stage and don't know how to cut it, they just don't have the muscle."
Sir Peter has a new series of plays opening next week at the Theatre Royal in Bath.
