See http://www.ugclondon.co.uk/

They are not revealing the name of the show, in some bizarre publicity stunt, but it's a musical comedy in which the initials UGC are prominent, which ran for several years on Broadway. So it's Urinetown, presumably.

Saw it on Broadway. It's OK.

Although I wouldn't rave about it, I would have bought tickets but the TO offer allocates seats from the sides in. So not the best seats.

So I won't be buying any.

Shot themselves in the foot in more ways than one.
If I listed every show I'd seen since 1974 I'd get RSI.

Yeah, I gave it a go out of interest and was allocated E1. The least they could do is let us pick our own seats, which you can do for any other St James show.

It's a GREAT show.  Just be thankful it's at long last coming to London.

I don't agree. So why should I "just" be grateful?

If you're grateful, fine.

Taking it a bit personally, aren't you?  You have already expressed your opinion.
