Posted on 11 February 2011

They say that an opera begins long before the curtain goes up and ends long after it comes down. What better way to witness its magnificence, than in one of the most famous theatres in London’s very own West End district. If you are on a budget then getting your hands on some cheap theatre tickets may be the way to go. Whether you have planned well ahead to catch a show or it is a last minute decision, either way even last minute theatre tickets in London are easy to find.

Firstly, you need to choose the show you wish to see. There are many popular West End shows available to suit any kind of audience. If you like musicals, there is Dirty Dancing, Chicago, Billy Elliot the Musical, Betty Blue Eyes, Grease, Jersey Boys, Legally Blonde, The Lion King, Love Never Dies, Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You, Shrek, The Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, The Wizard of Oz, etc. If its drama you seek, choose from The 39 Steps, Flare Path, The Children’s Hour, Cause Celebre, An Ideal Husband, War Horse, The Woman in Black, and more. For Comedy lovers shows like A Guide to Sexual Misery, Beggar’s Opera, A Flea in Her Ear, La Soiree, Much Ado About Nothing, The Rivals, My Trip Down the Pink Carpet, might give you a good laugh. If dance is something you enjoy watching then Cinderella, Romeo & Juliet or Shoes.

Once you have chosen the show for you from an array of options, buy the tickets. There are many sources to get your tickets. From booking them online to even coupling them with hotel stays, options are available in plenty. Booking them online has the advantage of getting guaranteed tickets; plus you can do it from your home or office. Doing it through an agent or by going directly to the box office are other options but you may end up paying more to the agent or you may not get tickets at the last minute by going to the box office. Both scenarios can be disappointing.

London is very hospitable when it comes to bargains. Booking last minute theatre tickets in London is very common. It is a great idea to hunt for last minute discounts on the net, especially if you are planning on going in a group, which can be an expensive affair with regular theatre ticket rates.
