So after losing at the lottery multiple times, I finally gave in and treated myself to a row B centre seat dress circle ticket and i can only sum up my experience by saying that i'm strangely disappointed...

I saw BOM on broadway and it was amazingly good fun but something was off tonight. The cast gave it their all but were sorely let down by the sound guys. It was hard to hear what they were saying/singing (surprisingly) at many times during the show and i think the 'offness' was felt by the audience as they were hardly a laugh a minute in my past experience at BOM. David O'R was in for Elder Cunningham and I thought he was good - he even made Gavin C corpse it at one point..speaking of Gavin ..his voice is amazing and is wasted on this...would love to see him in Next to Normal.

I would give it a solid 3.5/5 and hardly any gave the standing 'o' (and rightly so!! too much of this happening around at the moment) but i'm going to go back again to give the west end version another chance.

I went to the box office today, £150 for a ticket from the theatre?

I'd want to be up on the stage singing for that amount of money.

Crazy! Someone must be paying those prices I suppose. I'm glad I got in before the prices were bumped up after press night.

I once collected my ticket at the box office and a couple was asking for tickets for that week. Luckily for them, the clerk offered them return tickets for £125, which they refused – I thought that was quite a good deal, since I had paid £67.50 for my ticket, so they would’ve saved £5 per ticket. When I asked the clerk afterwards why they hadn’t taken the tickets, she told me they were £125 each... crazy.

So they must have introduced even more expensive seats since then. I absolutely adore BoM and it’s one of the best shows I’ve seen recently, but no show is worth that much money. I could see 3 or 4 other shows for £150.

The maximum I’m willing to pay for tickets is roughly £65, and only for special events like cast changes or closing nights.

This really saddens me. I love this show but feel I'm being forced out of seeing it because of the ticket prices. I have a couple of non-regular theatre going friends who said they were interested in seeing this show as I had raved about it so much, but when I told them the cost of seats they both said no. I totally understand it too. I just wish they would put some online offers out there as I live too far outside of London to risk the lottery :(
