More likely the theatre owner!

ATG were the ones who booted Petticoats from the Playhouse with short notices, still not as bad as Broadway which can be a soon as a few days.

Does anyone have any experience of queuing for Day Seats at the weekend for this? Just wondered compared to some day seats how quick people get there ? Also stupid question alert ! is the queue on the charing cross road side at the box office or actually at the theatre entrance doors around the side?

Any help much appreciated !

It's on the Charing Cross side. And it varies but usually it's not that busy. I day seated last Saturday and there were 7 people in the queue by 10am. You would have been fine getting there at 9:30am for tickets for either matinee of evening.

Yes, they are. There's 10 seats for every performance, all front row (avoid seat AA6 if you can).

They only let a certain amount of people up on stage pre show so I'd make sure to get there for around 7:10 - 7:15pm (or 3:10 - 3:15pm for matinees). :-)

I saw this on Saturday and was blown away by what I saw. I saw this the film about five years ago but had forgotten most of it except for Falling Slowly, but this is something else. Made me laugh and cry, and the music is just so beautiful that I ordered the cast recording as soon as I got home. The two leads are phenomenal (I smell Olivier Awards come March..). With this and Book of Mormon this is a stellar year for new musicals.

Arrived on Saturday morning for dayseats at 9:25am and was third in line (person second in line had got there at 8:30am), front row has the perfect view but man alive was it hot in there!
