The only 5 star I saw was from The Huffington Post

Tim Walker in the Sunday Telegraph gave it 5*- his only gripe was that the show didn't poke fun at Islam.

302 people turned up for the lottery yesterday, and it's apparently busier today

Do you think it'll be busy on Monday since its Bank Holiday?

Someone actually counted the entrants? Impressive! I was there for tonight's lottery and would say it was about double the amount of people I've seen try before (but normally I try during the week and it's 75-100 people, would say tonight was maybe about 200).

Love the lottery dudes by the way, their enthusiasm always makes me smile, even though all 4 times I've tried the lottery I've been unlucky.

Yes! I expect it will be crazy busy. With ticket prices ranging from around £70 to £125 now, unfortunately it is out of most regular theatre-goers' budgets so their only chance of them seeing the show more than once at an affordable price is by doing the lottery.

Or even the chance to see the show at all !!! It's fine to pay £150 for a pair of tickets if it is a special occasion once a year such as a birthday but for regular theatre goers like me it is out of the question. So I intend to do the lottery whenever I am in London when I can and have a fall back plan. But with prices that high, the marketing hype, and the profile of the theatre I think the lottery will remain very busy.

It is a shame that premium/top price seats are out of reach for most theatre goers.  I should say that at this theatre the reduced price seats at the back of the theatre (stalls) are well worth considering, I haven't ever sat in dress or higher so can't speak about the cheaper options in those seats..  The theatre has a great rake and the back stalls offer a very affordable option for those that want to see it but don't have the funds for a full price ticket.

I went last week - got the cheapest seats at the back of the circle - i must admit i was a little worried - but the prince of wales is such a good theatre.  i had no complaints about my view.  even at the back its such an intimate theatre and there isnt a restricted view in the house.  i actually think those seats are the best value.  you can pay the same price for other musicals and sit in the heavens with a strained neck.  

as for the show....wow. boy does it live up to the hype.  i've just booked again for august in the same seats.

Just curious, what do you guys reckon are the chances of us getting a London cast recording? The Broadway one is very recent and I am not sure if it has happened in the last few years that a new Broadway production also got a London cast recording?
