I am VERY suspicious about the David Edgar simply because I think he is a rubbish playwright.
But otherwise there is little filler.....Barnum is taking up so much in terms of resources that I think this will be an amazing experience. It is being worked specifically for the Theatre In The Park so I can't imagine the experience (if it transfers) in London will be anywhere near the same. This applies to all musical transfers I think from CFT and you just can't compare seeing Singing In The Rain for £12 in the front row at Chichester to the less inclusive staging at The Palace.
I also think the membership is great value and is one of the few that actually offers a discount on tickets...something nothing any other major theatres have!
20% off all tickets when booking 4 or more shows is a good deal.
I am particularly excited about Another Country as have never seen this professionally staged but was in it at school for Drama GCSE!!

RSC Full Membership includes a £10 discount on two bookings per year (so £20 discount in total) in addition to occasional ticket discounts such as the recent £18 discount on Anjin tickets for all performances.

The RSC discount seems to be a closely guarded secret - only mentioned vaguely on one page. I guess you have to book by phone and ask for it? (Only moved to full membership this year)

Going off-topic now (how about a "Theatre Membership Schemes" thread in General Discussion?) but as I tend, with CFT, to cherry-pick the few plays or shows I most want to see (average two per summer) and to book the cheapest seats, paying for membership would not only be of no benefit but would represent an unnecessary extra cost. And personally, I want any money I spend to be invested in actual tickets. The same applies to those many "multi-buy" schemes which always seem to require you to book for one more production than you actually want to see from a new season!
Some memberships I do consider worthwhile - for my particular circumstances, clearly - for instance, those of the NT and ATG. The former for a better chance of bagging the aforementioned cheap seats and the latter for excellent discounts and to avoid booking fees.

I think that's a great suggestion
