The London Theatre

Does anyone know what performances are playing at the theatres in London on June 21 and then from June 22- 28th? Where do you get the rush tickets?

One of the things I learned from this site is going to www.whatsonwhen.com. If you go to that site, click on theatre, england, london region, and plug in the dates, and you will find a pretty comprehensive list.

You can always check at the Leicester Square 1/2 price b.o. for tickets, or wait until 10 minutes before show time at the box office, and can usually get decent seats.

Go to www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk, plug in your dates and it will show you every show booking for the time you are there. If it is important to you, then call the theatre directly (the numbers are listed right there) and book the tickets with them for no service charge or extra mark-up. Otherwise wait until you arrive and get day of show tickets at the official half price booth in Leicester Square.

The 1/2 price booth is great or you can go directly to each theatre and try for student tickets. The advantage to the Leicester Sq TKTS booth is that there are so many shows to choose from and you don't have to run from theatre to theatre.

Every day is different but for an idea. here are the 1/2 price shows available last Thursday:

MATINEE
Bedroom Farce
Blood Brothers
Caught in the Net
Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
Constant Wife
Daisy Pulls it Off
Humble Boy
An Inspector Calls
Kiss Me Kate
Midsummer Night's Dream
Les Miserables (25% off)
My One and Only
Night of the Soul
Stones in his Pockets
This is Our Youth
Vagina Monologues
Yeoman of the Guard

EVENING
Art
Bedroom Farce
Blood Brothers
Caught in the Net
Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
Constant Wife
Daisy Pulls it Off
Fame
Full Monty
Glee Club
Humble Boy
An Inspector Calls
Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train
Kiss Me Kate
Lady Windermere's Fan
Midsummer Night's Dream
Mind Games
My Fair Lady
My One and Only
Mysteries
Night of the Soul
Noises Off
Phantom of the Opera
Shockheaded Peter
Stones in his Pockets
Taboo
Tempest
Vagina Monologues
Woman in Black

As you can see - something for everyone

We returned from London on Tuesday. We prtebooked My Fair Lady (very good, big budget, lavish musical) directly from the theatre, paid no service other than 1 pound and tickets arrived in 5 days.

We also wanted Blood Brothers (recommended by daughter). Passed Leicester Sq early afternoon on a Saturday and TKTS had only 2 people in front of us.

Bought Blood Brothers, First balcony 5th row and paid 42 pounds for both. This theatre is very small and seats were excellent.

Blood Brothers, though quite heavy is excellent. Highly recommend it.
