mousetrap, worth seeing? Available at half-price? Nedd to book in advance ?

We are traveling in mid March and so far have struck out getting tickets to posters rec shows. Is Mousetrap worth seeing? Are tickets available at the half-price booth? Would we be better off getting in advance ? Or are they , too, sold out ? Thanks so much....we are travelling with 2 teens , one older , one not so old, and don't want to shock one or bore the other ( or embarrass orselves) .

No, they never handle tickets to Mousetrap at the half-price booth. Frankly I think most teenagers would be bored with it. It is mainly filled with huge tourgroups and packages as it is considered more a tourist attraction than fine theatre. On the other hand, if you are not avid theatre goers, it will fill the job of seeing some decent British theatre while in London. What about Blood Brothers? This is a very interesting and extremely long running musical that always has tickets at the half-price booth. It is very popular with younger people as it has a sort of "rock" sound to much of the music. It's an interesting story about two brothers who were separated at birth, one raised as a wealthy boy, one as a poor boy, and their paths cross several times. Or just wait till you get there, there will be many options for shows at the half-price booth.

Thanks for your input..... and the suggestion of Blood brothers. Would you happen to know if the RSC productions need to be gotten in advance,or are available at the 1/2 price booth ? I am interested in others' experience as well . I 'll keep checking . This is an interesting forum.

We saw Blood Brothers in London in 1990 and again in San Francisco in 1995. You will enjoy it.

Mousetrap was also enjoyable. We tried to see it on a 1971 trip, but were unable to get tickets. Finally saw it in 1990. There is a reason a play continues to draw crowds that many years. We saw HAIR in 1971 and it no longer plays. We also saw an unknown comedy actor, Michael Crawford (Phantom) in NO SEX PLEASE, We're BRITISH. It no longer plays. Go to Mousetrap. You will enjoy it.

Saw Mousetrap last fall for the first time. Highly recommend it. I loved it. As the previous poster states, there is a reason a production plays for years, in this case, DECADES.
