    Yes it is, check it out:

    Ticket prices

    * Monday to Friday performances

    All performances (excluding August 3 to 31, October 26 to 30, December 21 to January 1 & February 15 to 19)
    o Best available top price seat - £55 now only £35
    o Best available second price seat - £42.50 now only £29.50
    o Best available third price seat (may be restricted view) - £32.50 now only £16.25

    Performances from August 3 to 31
    o Best available top price seat - £55 now only £39
    o Best available second price seat - £42.50 now only £29.50
    o Best available third price seat (may be restricted view) - £32.50 now only £16.25

    * Please note: Prices are subject to a booking fee of £1.85 per ticket

    EDIT: that means the bottom half prices are a little higher on the top seats but they're available on the friday.

    [url]www.tkts.co.uk[/url] genuine half price offers but only on the day to personal callers Im afraid but great value if you just want to see a good show. I know this doesnt help you for les mis but worth knowing if you are ever in london for a couple of days and willing to take a chance.

    usually if Im in london 2 days I will buy for one show in advance and then take my chances at tkts for a second show.

    I just checked and you're right, it's not available on there.....that's why you have to book in advance to get the best deals in London. :roll:

    Aren't they flexible with dates at all?

    i dont know if there are any bartering involved i just mean them people handing out flyers and wearing sandwich boards....they are connected to them little shops in lecicester square....always queues of tourists when im down there so i pressumed they must be decent discounts?

    £59 seems to be face value and fridays seem to be very hard to get -seetickets have row s in the stalls tho-61.50 each including booking.

    not sure you will get these cheap for a friday night.-and its bank holiday weekend too.

    Nah, sorry, it was my mistake, it's when you actually check the availability on the next page that you see the cheaper allocations have already been sold out.

    This is why things have to be booked comfortably in advance in London, as a lot of companies have cheap allocations to make the place look busy and once that's full, then it reaches the next tier of prices.

    The main thing is, they don't want people paying a premium price to sit in an empty theatre.

    lol, don't worry you'll never forget DG. :giggle:

    Regarding the restaurants, some of them Taste for London card deals isn't as great as they make out but there's sites out there that can offer you 50% off loads of restaurants, as all the top-average restaurants are fighting for business.

    There's a place I might go with my friends which offers 50% off and a free cocktail. lol

    I just need to find a place with unlimited drinks and I'm laughing lol
