There are offers around for this bargaintheatreland.com has had half price offers for this for certain performances but not available at TKTS usually. The producers seem to be nursing this into a hit discounting quietly, relying on word of mouth and keeping the prices generally at full price. The show must have a relatively low running cost for a musical too which will help it's longevity.

Thanks, wickedgrin - I knew about the Bargaintheatreland offers, but as you say, they seem to be on the day and for evening performances, meaning they don't help people who need to plan ahead slightly more, if only by a day or so.  Still, I'm sure lots of people will benefit from discounts on the day and even though I'm paying full price for my matinee, it's still about the same as a half-price ticket for the evening - plus I stand more chance of staying awake!

Went back to Once last night and have noticed that theyve changed the staging again.

Seems like they're continuing to tinker with show still even though its been open for a while now..

That's not unusual though, every show is constantly updating and modifying bits and pieces.

Apparently it won't be extending its run after March. A tour is in the works, not sure how it will work on tour considering it hasn't been a huge success in London.

It's an easy show to tour; a small cast, no need for a pit and a single set.

Is it definitely closing in March or will there be scope to extend?

Source please?  Seems far too early to be deciding that, and certainly nothing's been rumoured for the Phoenix.   Even if true though, word of mouth on this show is very strong, and it's an uncomplicated set, so it'll tour easily.
