Harry Potter, London Theater
I'll be in London for four days mid-September. I've been reading reviews about Harry Potter and would love to see it. It would be worth the splurge to me, but is StubHub reliable and reputable? Any other suggestions of how to get tickets, or recommendations on any other plays? I've seen most of the big musicals either in New York or local theater. Thanks!

The only legitimate seller is If there are tickets available, they will be shown here. Tickets have generally been sold out since they began to be released in October 2015.

Even if you buy from elsewhere, they check ID to verify you are the purchaser, and if you aren't the one on file, you will likely get turned away.

According to the theatre's terms and conditions, any resale tickets may be void.

Per the official website:

<blue>"We reserve the right to refuse admission to customers with tickets purchased on re-sale websites. Tickets purchased through either of our official ticketing platforms must not be sold or advertised for sale on the internet, in newspapers or elsewhere.

We saw Harry Potter last November. My daughter got us tickets by going to the Harry Potter website and looking for returns by constantly reloading the site every hour or so on her iPhone. (We put Brit Sims into our phones when go to London) She tells me that the tickets would come up not so infrequently but you have to act fast to get them. Am not sure how things are today. It's a two part play. We got two seats 5 two rows back middle!

Good advice, thank you!
