Every day is Love Theatre day at Time Out Towers, but now a hashtag has made it official. Today is the first #lovetheatre day (and also, incidentally, World Toilet Day). Twitter has been bursting with stories straight from backstage at London theatres, tweets from artistic directors, producers, stage managers, designers, actors and the likes of YOU, all telling us how great theatre is. Here are some of our favourites that helped to get #lovetheatre trending worldwide…
