Tkts booth have them on the day, advertised day before. Ime the only ones you get seriously discounted are from the box office as day tickets which you queue for in person but not all shows do this. Hamilton has a ballot system. Offers do come through the Official London Theatre website, but availability is pretty limited. Weekend before Christmas seems unlikely.

Yep it will make a massive difference.

Lion king or Matilda for example don't need to discount tickets in reality because people will pay to see them.

Les mis, Phantom may well do day tickets and half price tickets at the booths in Leicester Square, again their very very very popular the demand is ultimately very high.

A smaller show then yes the tickets may come down.

But as a suggestion instead of going best seats available pick chose my own seats that way you will get all price bands up.

Well if you say what show it is people on here can tell you from their experience if the price will go down and if your assumption there are a lot of spare tickets is true

Actual discounts are hard to come by unless you can claim a concession or the theatre in question does day tickets.

Really, the only way to get a discount is by default. By which I mean that you pay for cheaper seats on an upper level and hope that there hasn't been many sold so they close it and shift you into better seats on a lower level. However, the chances of that happening on a weekend with a popular show is pretty much zero.
