BLOG : Cheap Musical Tickets in London
Friday 15 July 2011
Are you wondering what you would like to do this weekend? Try catching a musical at one of the many theatre venues at the West End district. Theatre tickets are expensive is a misconception that many of us have. In fact, it is quite the opposite. You can enjoy the show you want at a reasonable price if you know how. Cheap musical tickets in London can be found online. There are plenty of ticketing websites dedicated to sell in expensively priced play tickets and providing comprehensive information about the on-going theatre scene. They even have packages of a meal or dessert and a show, and some even have tickets for other attractions around London like the London Eye, London Dungeon, a relaxing afternoon or dinner cruise on the river, and a visit to Madame Tussauds.
If this is your first time at the theatre, a little heads up is necessary. Things you should know are that firstly, the dress code is smart/casual, which means no jeans or track pants. Secondly, it is better to avoid carrying a camera or video recorder as they are strictly not permitted inside the theatre premises. Even mobile phones should be turned off rather than putting them on silent mode for you to enjoy the glory of any theatre performance to the fullest. Thirdly, you must try and reach the theatre at least 20 to 30 minutes before the show starts so that you are comfortably seated before the curtain goes up. You are mostly set to have a pleasant experience keeping these things in mind, but if you have doubts about any other rules or etiquette requirements of the theatre, you can feel free to ring them up.
There are a number of musicals playing at the West End. A little research online about their stories or themes could give you an idea of which one you would want to watch. While all musicals have things in common like great music, high energy performances, nice songs, elaborate costumes, and pleasing sets, the stories and themes vary greatly from one another. Famous musicals include Dirty Dancing, the Lion King, and Legally Blonde, which are based on famous hit movies by the same name. Then there is Wicked, a story of two witches from the Wizard of Oz, but no matter what musical you choose to see, cheap musical tickets in London
are the way to go.
