    London Shows....

    I am thinking of going to a few london shows in the near future, and was wondering whether "you get what you pay for" when it comes to the seats and prices?
    The stall seats are almost £70 and the Balcony seats are £30ish, is there really £40 difference between the two sets of seats?
    help is appreciated

    Stalls arnt 70 quid and so wherver you getting from your being ripped off ...

    Erm the price does vary. Personally having seen most of londons shows (im a drama and theatre stuides student) I would choose stalls all the time. £45 is average price.

    Must see is Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre - Amazing.

    From my experiences in theatres in manchester, its better to pay for the seats up front. I mean, you dont want to be paying 20p for binoculars when you could just pay a bit more and see the expressions etc etc

    +1 Whereever you go in the theatre, which now is unfortunatly an expensive treat for most. The stalls are your best bet. Front half of first tier is ok for some, But I wouldnt like it because im used to the theatre.

    Have had front row seats to Phantom, Les Mis, Lion King and Woman in Black.

    Normally some good deals here:http://www.getintolondontheatre.co.uk/



    No there Isnt ...


    Just use ticket master as West end shows are renowned for Phoney Ticket booths and People selling illegitimate tickets outside for a "bargain" price.

    Ive only seen the West End Version - Its a true spectacle. A once in a lifetime kinda show. OK Ive seen it 4 times..

    Phantom of the Opera is the best, and always will be for me. The first West End show I seen, and the last I just seen back in Nov. Love Never Dies the sequel is the next to see.

    I saw it a while back, when it was on tour. I`d expected it to be more for the girls, to be honest. But I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    It`s going on tour again later in the year.

    does this seem like a good deal to those theatre experts out there?

    Pompey - if your username is anything to go by for location then you should check out the Sothampton Mayflower as Les Mis is coming on in Aug - Sep 2010.

    thanks for the help and info, but im doing a weekend away with the girlfriend for her birthday in london...
    thanks though

    No probs - done pleny of shows in town at various times. Within the last few months we have seen Sister Act and Billy Elliot and both very good but different.

    Depends on what you like but Miss Saigon, Les Miserables and Blood Brothers (originally from Liverpool) are probably favourites since first show circa 1995 which was Miss Saigon. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    I took the missus to see Chicago at the Cambridge theatre in the west end and it was a great show, I think our tickets in the stalls were about £40 each but quite near the front in the fourth row.

    really want to see Phantom where did you have seats for it? I was told that some seats dont allow you to get the best effect of the chandalier dropping

    it depends really. good circle seats are usually a lot better than far back stalls...
