I saw Cats on tour at Milton Keynes Theatre yesterday .. nice modern theatre aircon and everything !!
I sat in stalls E12 - E being the extra legroom row :
Ticket price for Cats seat E12 was £32.50
If you want to see Ghost seat E12 is £45
If you want to see Wicked seat E12 £72.50 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
( these prices all go up £2.50 for weekend performances)
I wanted to see this in its first incarnation and a chamber version is intriguing.Cast TBC
It is on at the newly moved Southwark Playhouse 26th July - 31st August 2013.
Tickets for the first 4 dates are £10 and then go up to £22 after that so it might be worth a gamble at that price while they are still available ...
If any of you get the chance to see The Hired Man do go and see it.It is on in Colchester until 6th April and then Leicester after that.
Julie Atherton is absolutely incredible in it.David Hunter is also really good.
The set is minimalistic but the original music is stunning.How often do you see good use of a harp ?
The atmosphere is intense.
You could openly hear people crying in the auditorium - myself included.
It is very much in the vein of Once but I found it far more emotional.
