So, I renew my membership with National theatre, only to find that Headlong have started their own £15 membership scheme that will give priority booking for this play. I note they won't guarantee priority booking for all their productions, though, as there is a nasty little * get-out clause. Feel a bit cheated, even before this has begun. Smacks of profit making....for goodness sake put the show on in a bigger space if it is going to be incredibly popular. Needless to say will not be joining any time soon.....

Yes, she was v good in Reasons to be Pretty, though in that play, the marvellous Sian Brooke stole the show.

Billie was sensational in Reasons to be Pretty and I'm very excited for The Effect. Does anybody know if I sign up to the Headlong productions priority will I get the same choice of seats as I would joining up to the NT priority booking membership thing? I just want to get front row seats to The Effect so there's no point in me signing up to the NT one, but how can NT and HL be offering priority booking to the same show with the same seats if you book with NT.... bit confused!

I see that they are restrictng supporters to four for this play. OOO ah, they must expect a deluge. Or is this just clever marketing/ I do admit I thought I would have to get the full four. I just find this very silly.
