Ok update on the Donmar debacle. I've booked the three shows but even as a supporter at Wigs level I was only offered side stalls and for a Saturday in April I was offered row D. I know the theatre is tiddly and they are all usually ok seats but I was a little amazed. So the Props supporters who can book from next week won't have a lot of choice for Saturdays I guess. I was told that the held back seats, the £10 ones are mainly in the circle and not many in the stalls. So that means the Lights level bagged all the rest.. Fair enough. But I wonder how many people will note in the diary the day they can bag a ten pounder and bag it before a ' new  ' audience  person gets a chance.

Will they publish the results  of this new booking pattern?

The Trafalgar studios have good availability. I booked Dance of Death.

In the circle, 22 seats are £10

mmm so we're not really being given accurate information then. Really disappointed with this, I love the donmar and its intimacy but since I'm not going to be able to be on the phone every monday and I need to be able to plan my time maybe I'm going to have to go elsewhere. So in that case I really need them to stop doing good productions ;)

It does rather discriminate against the working masses doesn't it....

It's no good....I can't do it. I keep going on the website and looking to book stalls tickets but those cheap £10 seats are all greyed out, mocking me at every turn. And the stalls are now £35.....for a play next June.....sorry Donmar, I am ashamed but I am holding on to see how the plays are when they open. You have driven me to this... <_<

Oh and not many stalls seats left atall...some dates just circle seats left. Was hoping to book The Weir

Good on ya! I've yet to work out my plan for 1st Oct when it goes on public sale; to book & return if I get a £10-er, or just wait and hope?

Think so. DD was no good for me sadly, always Monday evenings.

EDIT: the website says this-



"We are currently reviewing the Donmar Discovery scheme so are not taking any new members at this time."

"We are currently reviewing our policy of booking all Donmar productions, good or bad, in advance so are not getting any new tickets at this time"

The sad thing is I don't suppose they care.....I feel like an ex
