Barrie’s box at the Duke of York’s
« on: March 06, 2020, 10:55:26 PM »
Does anybody know the box that Barrie always used at the Duke of York’s Theatre? I read recently that he always used the same box but the box number may have changed. If I wanted to book a seat in the box for a performance which box would this be?

There is a mention in Denis Mackail's biography of JMB (p458) that he sat "again behind his little curtain in Box F." As far as I can see, that's the only reference to a box at the theatre. Perhaps the Duke of York itself can help if you contact their archive department? Let us know if you find out more.
