When you add to this the cost of a bite to eat, post show drinks and travel to and from the capital - the average theatre experience can get pretty expensive.
So, the question is -
"Is a West End theatre trip becoming something that only the 'more well-off' of us can afford?"
"What money saving tips can regular theatre goers offer to ease the blow?"

First of all I've got to disagree that theatre ticket prices are to blame. Like any other industry, if there is a demand then theatre producers would be foolish to discount tickets.
Also - the high quality of West End Theatre does have something to do with the larger budgets available thanks to the sale of tickets.
I have to agree that a night at a West End show is expensive nowadays.
The obvious way to make your money go a bit further is to buy 'last minute' tickets which generally work out cheaper.
As for saving money on food and drink - I think your pretty much tied to the fact that london pubs charge a premium - maybe we should just learn to drink slower..

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.
