I tried about two weeks ago for a Saturday mat (didn't win). There must have been at least 100 people there.

Yes I have been unlucky 3 times. But simply not prepared to pay full price for anything these days. I can see 4/5 shows for the price of a top price ticket for this and would rather do that.

Been unlucky 8 times so far... Doesn't seem to matter either whether I try a midweek show or Friday/Saturday. Always about 100-150 people other people there.

Succeeded second time for the lottery myself. It's pure luck, but the odds ( 6-10% chance) is worth the risk, epseically if you make alternative plans.

Yes there have been 100-150 people there when I have been too. Certainly worth doing for a 10% chance as long as you are in London anyway and have alternative arrangements. TKTS is nearby although I have found lately (when I have lost out on the lottery) you can get a better deal by going to the theatre box office directly and asking if they have any "day seats" left. If the theatre is not busy - at the box office discretion they sell any unsold seats cheap up to an hour before the show. Theatre land is small enough to walk from one to another theatre - I have always got something. On my last unsuccessful lottery outing I walked to the Adelphi and got a "day seat" in the front stalls for £25 and I always smile when I see people next to me who have paid £60 plus or even premium prices! Strangely I always enjoy the show so much more!

Me and my friend tried 3 times last week but had no luck.  The first time my mom and I went for lotto we got tickets so think it is worth trying.   With TKTS around the corner we found that we still ended up with good seats at shows.  One of the days we went from Mormon to Merrily we Roll along and got great day seats.  Worth trying as the tickets in the front are great value.

Walked past earlier before they did the lottery for the evening show. There looked to be about 70+ people trying for it.

Anyone know of a good site to get tickets for this? Ticketmaster/ATG-Tickets appear to be sold out, planning a trip down to London in the Summer and this show is at the top of my list

No they haven't. It's perfect for passing trade tbh.
If I stay awake, it must be good.
