There is nothing like the theatre. The intimacy, the atmosphere, the history, the culture. When it comes to entertainment, there’s nothing to beat it.
But like anything that’s a little bit special, it comes at a price. A night out in London’s West End has never been a bargain, but if you’re taking in a show, the costs can be truly astronomical.
So it’s more than just a little annoying when your seat turns out to be the pits.
And that’s the thinking behind seatplan.co.uk, an new crowd-sourcing venture that seeks to identify all those restricted view and squashed up seats in the capital’s “theatreland”.
If you’re long in the leg, or don’t fancy getting a crick in the neck to see the latest young stars treading the boards, it might be worth checking-in here to see where’s best avoided.
A little research here and you’re guaranteed the best seats in the house.
Can’t do much about the prices though…
