News just in, tickets go on sale on the 21st.

Apparently, originally it was the 13th, but I hadn't seen that put about. Think we might get a cast announcement at the same time, I'm sure they'll want to build a bit of hype for this.

Very very exciting and they're bringing over the ticket lottery too. Am preparing myself for some serious addiction from February on! :)

Or today, if you have an American Express card.

Ticket prices for this seen relatively reasonable - 57, 47 and 27, (plus 2 booking fee) looking at theatremonkey even the cheapest seats are ok

I would have it have been £65-67 which for West End is the current top price, how much are premium seats? I doubt they'll be charging anywhere near thr $477 they charge for premium in NY,

Premium seats are 85 I think

I guess for people in NY it might work out cheaper to fly to the uk and see it!

I've have been told that Wicked was very popular over head with US tourists because they could actually get a half decent seat, so I'd expect BoM to have the same effect.

Yes that is a market wicked definitely tapped into, don't know if it's still the case but I think Mormon will do the same

OK, further playing with dates shows that the prices I quoted were for previews.

Preview prices to 31st March
Weekdays:
£52.50, £37.50, £27.50, £85 premium
Friday and Saturday:
£57.50, £42.50, £27.50, £85 premium

Regular prices will be
All shows:
£67.50, £47.50, £37.50, £95 premium

So those mid-week preview prices are a bit of a bargain.

Can anyone please explain to me how a ticket lottery works? Never been to a show that's had one before

You go to the box office 2.5 hours before the show starts and get a lottery ticket. You write your name on it and hand it back into the box office. 2 hours before the show starts they come out with a box containing all the entries and pick out a certain number of tickets. You must be there in person if your name is pulled out. If you're one of the lucky ones you can buy up to 2 top price stalls tickets (though in some lotteries it's 1 ticket only) for that evening's performance for 20 each.
There may be a few differences in how BoM do it but essentially that is what happens.
