I'm considering membership just for this. Do you think it would be ok to get it now or will it be too soon? Also I believe as a member I can order 2 tickets (for certain performances) at a slight discount, but can I still buy 2 more tickets undiscounted? My daughter wants to take a friend

Its difficult for venues.  Do they invest in the time and money to get a queuing system for these very rare events that only happen once, or do they not.  And even when they do put queuing systems on people still moan, ive seen it happen lots of times.  There is no answer as people will always whinge when they cant get tickets immediately.

However you still need to offer good customer service so to not he replying to emails or phonecalls is unforgivable. Thats just basic good pr

My 15 upper circle ticket upgraded to G in stalls, 3 people left before the end of the first song, think that's a bit extreme.

I do like the girls costumes.

#296053 Donmar Membership Scheme

Posted Lynette on 10 March 2014 - 03:59 PM

HG I appreciate your analysis but don't buy it.

Funnily enough I was only thinking on Saturday night round about the middle of Act One of Versailles that perhaps I could place my dosh better than with the Donmar. I am one of the few who was not impressed with Coliolanus ( God help us if he wins the Olivier award with that performance) and Versailles is awful. Of course I want benefits for the donation. Altruistic as I am and give generously to charity as I do, the deal when you give extra to a theatre generally is that you get priority booking, maybe a programme , maybe a special room away from the hoi polloi for your drinkies (as at the National) and those invitations to dinners, events and so on you can't go to because they are all at a silly time like 6pm......but the only one of which I DO want is priority booking for the best seats. I can do well without any of the rest. The  Donmar has taken away this benefit from me as I now book in advance but don't get the best seats even if I phone on the very first day of my priority status, so what is the point of me continuing to give them extra money? You say, to support the Donmar. But I have to share out my pennies and maybe other places need them more and offer me better shows and better seats. The logic is muddled I admit because more money might mean better shows but there you are...

#289584 Royal Opera House, Covent Garden Seating Question

Posted Dawnstar on 15 January 2014 - 06:32 PM

Apologies for the double post but anyone after Faust tickets make a dash to the ROH website now as a handful are currently available for each performance apart from the first night, including a few amphitheatre ones. I've just grabbed one for just under my budget limit - though I still think £46 for row M amphi is ridiculous. Front amphi is now over £100 - a few years ago it was only around £50!

Oh, so they declined the offer to be in Fatal Attraction? That's a pity.

According to Baz, Trevor Nunn is to direct a stage version of Fatal Attraction which is being produced by TRH and Robert Fox starting with previews on the 8th March before opening on March 25th.

I wonder if Blithe Spirit is on hold or going to another theatre. TRH have recently produced Barking in Essex at the Wyndhams so there is a possibility that Fatal Attraction could open elsewhere.

Neither.  Instead, Angela Lansbury's playing the bunny boiler.
