Tara: The booth used to open at 11 AM but I have heard that this summer they now open at 10. You don't need to be in line early. They run two different queues - one for matinees and one for evening performances. The line, esp for the evening performances can be long but it moves quite fast. I've never had to wait more than 15 minutes and that was on a really busy Friday, usually it is more like 5 minutes.

One caveat though - one reason the line moved so fast is they didn't take credit cards - cash only really speeds things up. However, they apparently started taking cards in the past couple of months, so the lines may take longer now.

Thanks for the information Janis. Do you know what time the booth closes? Does it stay open until right before showtime?

Tara: Oops I meant to include the closing time - sorry. They used to close at 6PM - but with the other changes in the last couple of months (Credit cards and earlier opening) that may have changed too. I was last in London and at the booth early this year and won't be over there again until the 1st week in October so my info is a few months old.

We just returned from London and we saw the Lion King. It was phenomenal. We bought our tickets several months in advance over the internet. Go see it. You won't forget it.

Tara: This morning I received my londontheatre.co.uk on-line newsletter and it says the hours at the 1/2 price booth are 10AM - 7PM.

Jo Ann, Just got back from London. Mamma Mia was indeed great. We were concerned that our expectations were too high after all the hype, but loved it. My father now wants to see it in Boston or New York. Starlight Express was a big disappointment for my two teens and my husband-my father and I had other plans. Had not seen Mousetrap since I was 19, it was still a good take. My boys loved it. If I had it to do over again I would skip Starlight Express and see Blood Brothers. Have fun.
