SHOWS SECTION NEWS & INFORMATION

NEWS THIS WEEK:
True West, starring Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones) - date changed.
Ian McKellen - to celebrate his 80th birthday Ian is touring next year and I've managed to get some tickets for his one night at Richmond Theatre.

News on Harry Potter & The Cursed Child - it has been announced that for performances from April 2019 group tickets will become available, however, they are not available for weekend dates, so I can only do both parts in one day on a Wednesday, or do a Thursday or Friday evening. So a new question for you is...Would you be OK to do both parts in one week (Thurs & Fri), or would you prefer to do in consecutive weeks? Please let me know at IBM Club London West

SHOWS/EVENTS I WILL BE INVESTIGATING:
A Saturday performance at Mill at Sonning - probably Guys & Dolls, or an Agatha Christie!
Songs for Nobodies
3 events at The Bridge Theatre for 2019 - My Name is Lucy Barton, Alys Always and A Midsummer Nights Dream
And on the musical front - Waitress (the Musical), 9 to 5 (the Musical), Six (the Musical) and On Your Feet (the Musical!)


UPDATES:
Note: On some events where tickets maybe limited and we are over subscribed we will instigate a ballot for the tickets.

Note: We may have to set a cut-off in which we only proceed if we sell 6 or more tickets for any show.

Theatre "extras"
We tried a "Red Package" offering at an Ambassador theatre for Mary Stuart, which gave access to a lounge for pre-theatre drink & nibbles (included) and for use at the interval. This was well received, so I will be looking to do it again.

Feedback & Reviews:
Feedback on TINA the MUSICAL:
Packed with energy and all the music you love you can't help but tap your feet. The story takes you through the heartache of hard times up to Tina making it bigger than ever. A musical masterpiece with lots of laughs thrown in.

Feedback on CHESS:
Hi Paul,
I just wanted to say thanks for getting such great seats for the superb production of Chess. I felt privileged to have a seat in this short 5 week run. The staging was innovative with lots of historical video on the screens to give the production context. The cast was very special, Michael Ball as exceptional as always, such a lovely voice. And Tim Howar, seen more often as co-front man for Mike and The Mechanics, brought a flavour of rock star to his part. Cassidy Janson fresh from playing Carole King in Beautiful, stepped into Elaine Pages shoes with great confidence, delivering "I know him so well" along with Alexander Burke in her own style.
A wonderful evening out.
Many Thanks 


 
Checkout this feedback on KILLER JOE:
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the Killer Joe tickets last night, not only was the play absolutely gripping and brilliant, I got to meet the main man after the show. I have been a fan since I was 15 so it literally was a dream come true that I got to meet him. And not just that, I am a massive Gavin & Stacey fan and I also got to meet the Dave Coaches - Steffan Rhodri.
