I'm not talking about the restoration levy, I'm talking about if you buy through a ticket agent. Outside of the biggies like Ticketmaster, the industry standard is 25% so that means a top price Book of Mormon ticket will cost in the region of £86, their premium seats will be close to £125.

No it isn't, it's the producers. The booking fees with most ticket agencies have been 25% since pussy was a kitten. I blame Victoria Wood. Acorn Antiques smashed the ticket price glass ceiling and despite her saying at the press conference the high price was only because of its limited run and high production costs and saying that other shows shouldn't follow suit, every show did.

15 years ago, top price for a musical was £32.50, and a play was £27.50 (or thereabouts). It's just surreal to me that in a relatively short space of time, it can increase so much. And it's counterintuitive when people have less money to spend. Juggernauts like Mormon will succeed with those prices, but lesser shows sticking to the same pricing model will inevitably fail. People simply can't afford to pay the top price. There isn't really any such thing as a cheap ticket to the theatre anymore.
