Standard Theatre, Shoreditch, one of the principal East-end houses, as well as one of the largest theatres in London, just opposite the old terminus of the G.E.R. Provides at times a rather higher class of performance than is customary in these districts, with leading actors, or at times whole companies, from the best West-end houses. NEAREST Railway Stations, Bishopsgate and Shoreditch Omnibus Route, Shoreditch.
