Yeah, you're right, that's what I was thinking. You can get a very good seat for £10 for Rose Tattoo but have to pay over £40 for a good seat for The Glass Menagerie. It's just unfortunate they're so close together I guess.

But see thread on Rose Tattoo. Sounds as if it's only worth half the price.

Amanda Hale as Laura was magnificent. The best new talent I've seen since Kelly Reilly in Three Sisters. In fact all four actors were class acts, although their voices did not carry well across the Apollo. I was only in Row M, and my hearing is 20/20ish, but I strained to catch the dialogue at times, and I shouldn't have had to do that. (This show feels as though it directed for a smaller space than a prosc arch west end house; I'd love to have seen it at the Donmar.) After the interval I moved forward a few rows and matters improved a tad, but it still wasn't perfect - and for such a long, wordy show this was a drawback. But everything else was outstanding, and Rupert Goold caught the dream-like quality of the play better than any other version I've seen. Bravo.

It is just such a beautiful production, and Amanda Hale gives such a heartbreaking performance.
I also thought Jessica Lange was better this time than the first time I saw her.
I really urge anyone who hasn't seen it to see it, there are a bunch of offers and as wickedgrin says tkts!
