Donmar Front Row Scheme - Thumbs Down!Donmar cheap seats

But the key reason Honoured Guest and the Donmar are right about impending audience expansion is that the non-hyper-organised will be galvanised into getting tickets by the announcement of the casting, which typically occurs after the first day of public booking. They have always been galvanised this way, but in the past they were resigned to moaning and missing out. Now, when Ewan McGregor or Jude Law or Doctor Who alumni are added to casts, they will have lots of chances to pounce on tickets, and they will undoubtedly do so.
We hyper-organised people who book everything, and members too, will definitely lose tickets to laissez-faire Dr Who fans and star worshippers. And like Honoured Guest suggests, that's actually a fair result for a publicly subsidised theatre to achieve, as Dr Who fans are taxpayers like everyone else.

That's not true either. The Donmar never sold all their public tickets on the first day of booking, they released others later in the run. Your argument simply doesn't convince because of the very small capacity of the Donmar, the £10 tickets will be picked up by the usual suspects. Oh, and when was the last time the casting at the Donmar was likely to galvanise a wider "new audience" ? Not during the current regime for sure.
