In Topic: Bad Behaviour At A Show

13 April 2014 - 09:12 AM

I do enjoy this topic!
At a Small Family Business, National Theatre Wednesday Matinee, we had a pair of bare feet propped up on the stage from one of the occupants in the front row.  Occasionally the toes actually protruded above the stage floor.
The possessor of these feet together with her companion (also with feet propped up on the stage) left at the interval.

Re. Miss J's enquiry.
I like the Albert Hall as a venue but there is a problem with photography and recording.
Many people who go there also do not seem to have English as a first language and cannot understand requests not to photograph.
The staff do their best to stop it but at the RAH it is well nigh impossible because of its size and the location of the seats - especially when done from the boxes.
Many of the boxes are indeed privately owned - a legacy from when the RAH was built - i.e. privately financed.

In Topic: What's Happening In Leicester Square

I agree that many of the tickets now at the booth in Leicester Square are not half price, but there are some bargains there.  The other day they had £94 seats for the ENO's Rodalinda for £30.  No catch either - front circle.  Still worth checking what they have.

I'm reassured that somebody has mentioned ENO and the Alden brothers.
I have left more productions where either of these gentlemen were involved, than I can immediately recall.
A Rigoletto has recently opened, set as you would expect from either of these Diectors, in a Victorian Gentlemens Club, sounds like another promising candidate.

Just a brief report on seating.
The back row upstairs (Row C) is VERY compressed and uncomfortable.
Visibility not too good either with sightlines partially obscured.
