I take it I'm going to have to pay full price for these then. Anyone recommend any seats in the Wyndham's?

There may be offers later on in the run. It wasn't full yesterday afternoon: balcony closed.

If you're paying £60, I'd go for the front row, simply because you see the facial expressions so well, which is important for an actor such as Atkinson. And your get a huge amount of legroom. The back row of the stalls is well raised up, and not too far away. £47 I think. Otherwise the balcony (and I've sat up there a lot!) is a clear view, though distant. I do think it's one of, if not the best, West End theatre in terms of sightlines.

They might introduce dayseats/stand-bys later on too, who knows.

Any cheap tickets going for this or any sign of them starting deals, etc.?

AWFUL

Went on Thursday and left at the interval

Bored rigid

Totally irrelevant play and outdated

If THIS is what Rowan Atkinson decided as his "vehicle" to make a serious stage comeback on then I consider it a pathetic choice of play

SImon Gray is certainly an acquired taste but I loved Butley (which is a far superior play)

Any chance of others being able to get into this?  I just want to see the play, not bothered about the cast and seems to be no cheap way to see this like there is at most West End joints.
If, for some strange reason you care what I've seen, it's all here:

  It doesn't sound like an essential watch unless you're a Simon Gray/Rowan Atkinson completest but what does 'totally irrelevant play' mean. Irrelevant to what? :blink: And what are relevant plays relevant to?

Looks like it is open to the general public. It's been posted on the understudy runs in London facebook page.
