Hamlet/Love's Labour's Lost have been available to the public for a few days I think

I had 3 phones on the go plus 2 laptops, and managed to get through on the phone by 10:10am. The internet was being very slow, and showed all seats as sold out. In the end, got 2 stalls side seats for a Saturday in December. I'm amazed!

I got onto the website at 9.00, and though it was incredibly slow, thankfully it didn't crash (at least not for me), though I can understand why people would think it HAD crashed when it took more than 5 minutes for every single page/step to load. I managed to get the last stalls ticket for Jan 3rd, which in the end took 45 minutes from start to finish. I was a bit worried that it was so slow that it would time out and the ticket be relased to someone else, but after much worrying I finally got the confirmation page to load  biggrin.gif

No luck at all here. Looks like I picked the wrong year to let my Friends membership lapse. sad.gif

I see that Ambassadors in their newsmail are promoting this as the Ewan McGregor show (not that they need to promote it at all any more).

Got lucky after about an hour and a half of trying at 10.30.  Got front row in the circle for a Friday night in February - pleased and surprised as only Friday or Saturday were any good.

Someone I know started ringing just after 9 and by the afternoon still hadn't got through. I started at the same time, and got through after about 12 attempts. Over the years I've seemed blessed when it comes to this sort of thing... for which I give constant thanks! It helped that I only needed a single and managed to get just about my favourite seat in the house, stalls B13 - aisle with no seats in front - on a cheap Monday in Feb.

I initially tried the website but even on good days I don't like that ATG system, it always seems to just go off and leave me hanging there.

I can take or leave McGregor by the way - I'm mainly going in order to ogle Kelly Reilly.
Turn up the signal... wipe out the noise

I got tickets too. In fact, I'm struggling to think of any play that I have failed to get tickets for through the "normal" advance booking process.
