A break because I just CBA
I go (well, went) once a week minimum for the last few years and coupled with a health issue, I fell out with it a bit - the last thing I saw was Hamilton back in December.
Anyway, I’ve got a parental visit in 2 weeks so I’m booking to go see Mormon (4th visit) and The King and I. I want to see Orlando Bloom in Killer Joe too... I hear he’s naked but it’s for cultural purposes, I swear
In terms of cost, I hardly ever spend more than £25 a ticket (Mormon is £35, but it’s worth it). I refuse to spend more - theatre is great, but there’s no need to spend much more than £25 - and mostly that gets me a great stalls seat.
I mean, if you’re flexible even Harry Potter tickets in the first few rows of the stalls can be found for £20 a part nowadays, and TodayTix is amazing for a bargain - I plan on getting rush tickets for £25 to The King & I as I refuse to pay their actual prices.
Are you not a member of one of the seat filling websites? I get tickets for £3.50. Mostly fringe stuff, but enough west end stuff (and o2 shows) pop on it to make it worth joining - I saw Kristin Chenoweth for £3.50
