This year's theatre just got a whole lot brighter.
whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should

Yes, join. But even then you will be allowed only 4 tix a show. Cunning beasts.

oooo crafty
well I don't know about online
I usually get one of those letters which takes a PhD in communication studies to understand with its exceptions and price for this and price for that..and usually as I said, they limit the juicy stuff to 4 tix a person.  If anything comes up, I'll post

Members booking starts September 10, public October 15, or so goes the rumour. Time to get that membership, I think

I've never had a problem booking in the first week of public bookings for solo or groups. If you want to guarantee a Saturday night, you might need to get membership

One of the interesting things about this production is that I believe (and someone may correct me) that Michael Grandage appeared as an actor in the greatest production of this play I have ever seen - the RSC Nunn/McKellen one. In fact this was such a landmark production that subsequent productions by Sam Mendes and Michael Attenborough have simply duplicated it (the Mendes one in particular was very similar). It will be interesting to see if Grandage has a different approach.
