All the other seats were reduced for previews, makes sense dayseats go up at the same time.

Not to me it doesn't! It drives me absolutely mental when day seats are more than £10-£15. The whole POINT of day seats is they're an unbelievable bargain, a trade off for having to go to the box office in person and queue up for them (although, yes, you can in this case sometimes get them online). With a MUCH higher top price, The Audience is front row day seats at £10, a price that didn't alter before or after previews.

£20 instead of £59.50 for front row (which actually isnt even front row as seats have been taken out for orchestra so view is even better) is still a bargain!! We should be grateful that day seats even exist as there is no real business sense to sell a seat you could potentially sell for £60 for £20.

For the big sell out shows you could have days seats at full price and people would still queue.

You could, only the two biggest (admittedly non-musical) hits currently running have day seats at £10 and £12. As much as I enjoyed this production of Merrily, I can't see it being a big draw, even with those reviews. I think doubling the price of day seats is a tad foolhardy. Yes, I know, we should be grateful they exist, and there at least 4 shows I can think of off the top of my head I wouldn't have seen if they weren't doing them, but even so.

Still good value, but not as good as they were.
