(I actually wish there were different directors like Renaissance had. I do get tired of the Grandage house style and the memory of Madame De Sade doesn't give me any confidence in his ability to choose a decent new play to suit Dame Judi's particular skills)
Still you are all welcome to disagree and I'm sure some of you will, very forcefully

Talking to a few friends who are producers in the West End - they are watching this model closely as if it works, I think it will shake up the current trend of charging silly prices for Restricted view will have to go as people will be less inclined to pay more for a bad seat - when this model is clearly working.
My seats and dates are as follows:
Privates on Parade: Jan 15th - 7:30pm - Stalls V10
Peter and Alice: Mar 19th - 7:30pm - Balcony A3
Cripple of Inishmaan: July 17th - 2:30pm - Stalls V11
AMSND: Oct 2nd - 2:30pm - Stalls V11
Henry V : Jan 8th - 2:30pm - Stalls V10

NT- Kinnear's was too recent
Grandage- Law's was too recent
YV- Sheen's was too recent
Old Vic- Whishaw's was 2004 I think
Donmar- they had the WE one with Law, but maybe under the new regime?
Royal Court- they occasionally do a revival (eg Seagull and Chicken Soup)
Commercial West End- possible, maybe Sonia Friedman?

I certainly remember enjoying the first production of it, at the National in 1997, directed by Nicholas Hytner, though it's not the sort of stuff one associates with him (Hytner, that is). It's set in 1934 and about what happens when a film crew come to a neighbouring island. McDonagh's plays are usually hilarious.
