The Official London Theatre Sale

Tickets start at £10/seat for over 40 shows until February 10

The Offical London Theatre Sale is one of London's longest-running theatre promotions.  Tickets to top shows cost £10, £20, £30, £40 and £50 depending on the show and there are no booking fees.  Here are just some of the featured comedies, musicals and plays and what to look (and listen) for:

  • Back to the Future (£30, £40 and £50) — Checkout the movie-themed bar before the show begins or during the interval / intermission.

  • The Book of Morman (£30, £40 and £50) — Listen carefully throughout the show the character Nabulungi is referred to by different names.  Names are often changed to reflect the audience, British choices include 'Brexit', 'Meghan Markle', 'Natwest' and 'Nectar Card'.

  • Frozen (£20, £30, £40 and £50) — When you enter the foyer, keep an eye out for display cases with Elsa's and Anna's dresses along with Frozen merchandise strategically placed just behind them.

  • Jersey Boys (£10, £20, £30, £40 and £50) — Trafalger Theatre's 630 seat auditorium recently completed a muti-million pound restoration back to its original 1930s art deco design.

  • The Lion King (£40 and £50) — See how many of the 232 puppets used in each performance you can count.

  • Mamma Mia! (£20, £30, £40 and £50) — If you are an ABBA fan, ABBA Voyage featuring the Swedish band as digital avatars is playing at a purpose-built arena at Queen Elizabeth Park.

  • Matilda The Musical (£30 and £50) — There is a good chance you will go home with some confetti (annually 12 million pieces are used).

  • The Mousetrap (£10, £20, £30, £40 and £50) — The longest running theatre production still features one of its original cast members and props.  The pre-recorded voice of the newsreader is of the late Deryck Guyler and the clock above the fireplace in the main hall is from opening night.

  • The Play that Goes Wrong (£30 and £40) — Be on the look out for special guest appearance signage before you enter the theatre — just the beginning of the silliness.

  • Six (£30 and £40) — Since the pop concert type musical is only 80 minutes and has no interval, it is one of the few you can have dinner after the show.

  • Wicked (£20, £30, £40 and £50) — The production uses 250 pounds of dry ice to create the fog.  The song "Defying Gravity" has been played by NASA to wake up astronauts in space.
The list of shows changes as some sellout and new ones are added.  Book now on-line or in-person at the TKTS booth at Leicester Square since some sell out quickly!
