In Topic: Tkts Booth

I've used tkts once in the past year for Handbagged last weekend. Not 50% off as used to be its raison d'être but at least it was a discount. Now, like others, I book in advance elsewhere.

Sad. I used to go when it was a shed at the other end of Leicester Square.

Wow, 124! My 48 aren't individual tickets but 48 different shows. And I've just booked Single Spies at the Rose, Kingston so now it's 49!

Saw the final performance yesterday. And yes, it's not the best Sondheim. But this was the best production of this troubled piece. However I'd completely forgotten about the xenophobic lyrics to one song.

Last year in February I had 43 tickets booked in advance. As of today it's 48 for the rest of 2014!

She is a stellar actress

But has fallen off the path a bit

This and her last stage play have both been weird (bad) choices

However she was spectacular in the 2 things I saw her in at The Almeida

There Came A Gypsy Riding

And the amazing amazing A Delicate Balance

This play is so awful I am not sure she is enough though

You get more social observation from an episode of Benefits Street
I disagree with everything you say. The Imelda Staunton character, who's looking for a job doesn't make polystyrene rabbits. Her friend does - she just takes one as a gift to the party. And people do network at parties.
