So particularly for fringe venues I just look at the ones I already go to regularly.

The thing is, the information is all there in Time Out's labyrinth of a website, but the tags and headings to find the information make it almost useless for extracting in any legible form. I have to wonder whether all that aimless frustrated searching gives them a large number of page impressions that they can tell their advertisers about i.e. do they have a vested interest in doing everything but allow you to visit the website for an efficient quick hit of listings into? If so it's counter-productive as blind fury doesn't make me particularly suggestible to advertisers' messages!
I tweeted Time Out Theatre and got a reply saying that they are going to be working on the 'Tags' in the theatre section soon. So, we'll see. Much as I'm grateful to londontheatre.co.uk (and wouldn't usually support 'the big guys') I'd like to see theatre information easily found within the mainstream that Time Out represents, as an international brand that isn't just for us theatre types.

So what I'm saying is that they lost the plot a while ago.

Re. the completeness of londontheatre.co.uk It's good, but they don't usually list anything that runs for less than 5 days (this is stated on their site).
