The internet is a mine field. Can anyone recommend please?

Would love to know if it is possible to pay less than £37.50 which is still very restricted view. dd really keen to go. we subscribe to LoveTheatre but never see offers for Les Mis.

I was looking for a wednesday matinee during the easter school holidays and i was being quoted £87 each!

LIZS Thu 14-Feb-13 16:25:56

wow . These were cheapest available for next Tuesday extra matinee when I looked 2 weeks ago !

and I cant decide how close would be good or how close would be too close? Have you been before Lizs? Its for DD's birthday present so half of me thinks sod the expense and just get the best i can but then I'm not so sure she will enjoy being too close to the stage.
I've finally found the official Queens Theatre/Delfont Mackintosh website so i'm going to get tickets from there. The discounted ones just aren;t available for when we want to go - sods law huh smile

I think it is going to be very popular now-not that is wasn't already.

I would buy the most expensive tickets you can afford. I was worried about sitting in the stalls as someone told me you can't see the revolving stage from there. I needn't have worried, I wept buckets. The experience was fantastic, well worth it.

thanks for the posts. We took your advice simplesusan and thankfully DH and DS decided not to come. So we spent on two tickets what we had planned to spend on 4 smile

Wait until August as there are often special promotions where you can take a child free with an adult ticket. Subscribe to and you get sent emails to say when the tickets go on sale.

thanks Sam - yes, we do that but this is for a birthday now. I've no doubt DD will be asking to see more later this year so i shall be keeping my eyes peeled for kids week!

Let us know how you get on.

I'm off to see A Chorus Line at the weekend. Paid full price as it is a weekend and I'm only paying for one ticket. I'm also hunting for bargains for April during school holidays as I am taking the family so it will cost considerably more.
