The theatre was far from full, which was a bit of a shame, I thought - but then it was a Monday night. However, it's got another month to go, hasn't it? I haven't noticed many ticket offers in the Metro newspaper etc - maybe I've missed them, or perhaps they haven't wanted to 'cheapen' their offering or imply they might be having difficulty shifting lots of tickets, by doing too many reductions?? If that's the case, I'm not sure it's a good strategy - it certainly wasn't the Marie Celeste in there, but it was a disappointing turnout for such a high-profile and critically acclaimed show.
Our stalls tickets were £57.50 each plus booking fee, which is a heck of a lot. We were due to be in row B but thanks to some of the comments on here about the high stage for this production, I asked if they could move us back a bit, and the box office staff happily put us into row D, which was much better. The stage really is very high, and it's a shocker that they're charging full price for the front row. I hope and assume that they'll go back to the normal stage height for the other 4 shows in this season...

My only gripe was the programme - 13 pages dedicated (more or less) to bloody Les Miserables! I understand the film has just come out and Dame Mackintosh owns the theatre but REALLY?!
I'm seeing the whole Grandage company season (£10 stall seats every show!) and if 'Cam' insists on keeping this up then the good ice cream sellers of the NoŽl Coward Theatre are going to have to get used to a disgruntled me tutting and announcing to anyone and everyone that I'm not here to see one of McDonalds screech fests

I promise I'll find my marbles soon.

But otherwise yes, it's just a big advert for Les Mis. As is the Quartermaine's Terms programme.
