RSC secures West End home in deal with Mackintosh

The Royal Shakespeare Company, without a permanent London base for nearly five years, is to team up with Sir Cameron Mackintosh, the theatre owner, to present an annual Shakespeare season in the West End for the next five years.

The deal kicks off in December with a series of Shakespeare comedies to be performed at the Strand Theatre, which will be renamed the Novello Theatre when it reopens after a �3m refurbishment."
