I think they could easily make the tickets £15 and it would still be a bargain. If a few quid is cited as the reason for dropping Travelex altogether then that's pitiful.
I don't agree that it brings a wider audience in though. Sure they may come for one show but they don't come back when they see the regular prices. The same thing happens when tickets are flogged for £5 on popbitch (Market Boy anyone). People will give it a go once but the regular audience at the NT always has been and will no doubt continue to be way outside the "yoof" demographic.

I remember Trevor Nunn's "Streetcar" in the Lyttelton 3 or 4 years ago, had all these extras come on wheeling barrows of their wares etc and they couldn't even get round the front of the stage so had to turn around and leave again each time between scenes. Looked crazy.
£12 - yep. £15...? Not at the back of the circle for a dodgy production. Too much if it's meant to be an udience development initiative.

Couldn't agree with you more about the extras.. Esp about the UN Inspector.. Although I alway enjoy the live band- perhaps they could incorperate them on the stage a la RSC.. Therefore keeping cost down but still filling the stage....?
I agree with Jaybee that £15 would be too much to be sooo far away and for a show that might not tickle your fancy.... but £12 is fine.. just don't have an ice cream in the interval!
