The St james is selling tickets to a show next year without saying what it is.
Seems a bit weird to me, especially given they haven't built up reputation for not to be missed shows.

Seriously though, if they were say, a tenner, I might give it a go, but £25 is far too much. I rarely spend that on any show, let alone one I have no idea whether I'd actually want to see it.

A bit more info on the Time Out Website, for those who which to start speculating:

Quote

What is 'UGC London'? Unfortunately, we can't tell you. Or actually, we can tell you a couple of things. It's a musical. It was a hit on Broadway, where it ran for several years. Time Out New York's theatre editor David Cote says: 'It was terrific, hilarious, great. One of the best shows of the year.' And it's making its UK premiere at Victoria's swish new St James Theatre. That's yer lot for now, but if you're willing to take a punt, Time Out will be exclusively selling advance tickets at almost half price (ie, £25), rising in cost by £2.50 a fortnight until the announcement of what the show is. So go on! What have you possibly got to lose? (£25 is what).

Yes, xanderl, you may be right. But how did you 'work it out'?

Looked at the Internet Broadway Database for musical comedies starting with U which ran for a couple of years :)

Then looked on wikipedia -

Well done you :) It seems to be running for a while, and as you say, the St James isn't a 'must go to' venue yet. And with a top price at eventually £50, it'll discount I'm sure. And by then we'll know the cast/creative team too!

What's the show like? There's always at least two productions at Edinburgh every year.
