I know :/ The sadder thing is that people have been reporting for months that they have been able to get tickets with this big a discount.

I have recently rediscovered going to the shows on my own. Used to do it all the time as a child/teen. So much more fun as an adult though as u can get pissed/take drugs before u go and no one is gona criticise u!!

Officially u have not experienced musical theatre if u havnt got loaded b4 hand! Seriously, next time u go see Wicked go to ur local jobcentre the day b4 and score some stuff - best 3 hours u will ever have!

Off to see A Chorus Line 2moro night - il b the one supping from a bottle of whiskey and gurning their gums off

When they sing "I'm flying hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh defying gravity" do you call out "you and me both!"?

I often go on my own simply because It's something I enjoy doing alone!

Haha great idea! Theatre Speed dating-you sit with one person for Act 1, another for Act 2 whoever is the best behaved audience member gets another date ;)

The problem with that is, the person who gets another date, it the person who talks the least... so therefore surely it is the worse date? :P Maybe it would be better if you had to spend the interval with the first one and the bit after the show with the other so you at least see if they can communicate? (Although as you implied, if they talk in the actual show they don't get another date)

Oh I don't know there's something to be said for the strong and silent type...or just the silent type ;)

Perhaps some kind of interval speed dating: tell me your thoughts so far in 90 seconds to find out if your theatre views are compatible :)
