There is no guarantee they will be selling them at TKTS in 3 weeks time, if the reviews are good. For a reasonable price there are the options of day seats or the upper circle, which has a fine view at the Palladium.

Day seats are not feasible, I'll only be getting into London at 5pm.  I was just wondering if there was any chance of anywhere other than the Upper Circle, as I'm not sure I can convince the friend I'm going with that sitting up there will be fine...I don't mind sitting there though, so I guess it's time to try persuading her!

It's a show to be seen from the dress circle and upper circle by all accounts. Check out the theatre monkey website for seating advice.
I expect later on in the run the discounts will start to appear though, the Palladium is a big house to fill every night.

Yes, the Palladium is a HUGE theatre to fill, and however good the reviews I think it is a show that has not got the big appeal with the coach parties such as Singing in the Rain or Top Hat. So I suspect it will always be a show available at TKTS - it is just a quesion of how much of a reduction - alot of shows there are not 50%off.

The view from the Second Circle is fine at the Palladium and the show is definately one to watch from above and back.

I don't think Cassie's meant to be a diva. I was watching her thinking how great her sister Zizi would be in the role but she's too young at the moment.

She is a girl on stage, not a woman. But I love her!! She is super talented!

Zizi's definitely my favourite Strallen! She is an incredible dancer! But you're right, she needs to mature as a performer. She's only 22 though (I think)

I like Scarlett but Didn't think this completely suited her.

Totally agree with you! Scarlett is one of my favourite performers, but Cassie isn't her role.

Must be the cheapest show ever to stage.
Pallet of big mirrors from Ikea
Costumes from Primark
and a roll of thick masking tape.

Show did little for me, The cast were good but the characters didn't get me emotionally involved so I didn't care if they were picked or not.
Maybe my expectations were too high.
I can't think out of the box as I don't have a box to start with.

We sat row G to the side in the Upper Circle and missed none of the main action. However the reflected images of the down-stage cast could not be seen.
