  1. I agree it is a bit hit and miss, sometimes I walk straight in, other times I offer my handbag and they are not interested. Its a bit like that at Sadlers Wells too. I guess a random "look" is better than not bothering at all. However, I would not like the airport security style as mentioned above - too much but I understand why some places insist.
  2. Just tried it and it did work So you are at the "Buy tickets for Mixed Programme", At "Promotional Code", insert "BRBCREATIVE15", then press apply, then choose your seat or even best available seat and a list comes up with and you will see the ordinary price, and then £15 offer. Try again, if it does not work send me a pm with your email address and I can send a screenshot - there seem to be lots of tickets left so would be good if more people could attend. Good luck.
  3. Go to Sadlers Wells website, when you book tickets, You will need the discount code: BRBCREATIVE15 To ensure a smooth transaction please apply the code first and then select your seats

  5. Hi , its looking like I won't make it to the performance tonight - it is an e-ticket so easy to send on. Please contact soonest if you are interested. Thanks.
  6. I was there on Friday (managed to get last minute tikt) - yes it was surprising when the stage manager (I guess) announced that there had been an injury and that a replacement was dashing to Sadlers -- he explained that there was a part where 2 men were undressing another man, and that it should have been 3 men , he also said that it was press night and hoped everyone would be OK while there was a short break. The atmosphere was really good and some people took the opportunity to have a quick trip to the bar etc. It was so interesting to see R&J set so differently although I did miss the family vs family - it was more the institutionalised vs the institution - opitimised by a major baddie character. Great to leave the theatre to Bad Romance by Lady Gaga - witty I thought.
  7. Love to take C 67 on 10th please. Will pm you.
  8. I received an email highlighting the studio rehearsals, and foolishly only booked one which was today with Nunez and Soares (as mentioned above) and I could not have been happier. I was on the balcony, £8 of any one's money (pre-Brexit, post-Brexit I'll turn up!). I would say that some of the acoustics or audio mics needed a little improvement or perhaps I need to see a specialist.
  9. Ticket available for the 7.30pm performance tonight - it's an e-ticket so can email across. Thanks.
  10. Lovely photos. A wonderful evening on 17th - so glad that a little snow did not put off the faithful. The Suit was great - I was hoping the ending would be different but you could see it would be bad! Barbican Theatre is such a lovely venue. Ballet Black on good form, as ever.
  11. hi Sue I might be interested - what time does it end - I have a 2.30pm meeting on that day. Thanks. Kathy
  12. Hello all Still looking for a ticket for this evening's performance - if you have one even at short notice up to about 5pm today -- let me know. Many thanks and fingers crossed. K
  13. Looking for one ticket for the evening performance - Balcony standing or SCS would be ideal. Was too slow off the mark yesterday with Friday Rush. Many thanks.
  14. I attended the performance last night (i got a discounted ticket from londontheatredirect - £35 tkt for £21) and enjoyed most of the first act which seemed a little long - I wasn't blown away by Satori but thought it was better than "walking in the sand" at Sadlers. However, today I was lucky enough to attend (by the kindness of Bluebird on this forum who could not use her ticket) and thoroughly enjoyed the performances - I agree with ENBlover, that Satori is better on second viewing). As far as snobbery goes, we all have our likes and dislikes, and even prejudices - for me snobbery is that sneering tone where the "snob" thinks their opinion is the best and anyone who disagrees is "less than" and this can absolutely happen in any genre. I learn more from reading the posts on this forum and enjoying the disagreements and not disrepecting anyone, and long may it continue. Best wishes to all for Christmas and New Year.
  15. Hi Larala I sent you a pm asking where the seat was and the price. You may not have got it or by now have sold your tkt. If still available let me know I might still make it. Thanks. Kathy
  16. I havent been to the cinema in ages - the last time it was at Vue and that was because there was a really cheap offer with my Nectar card! It can be my new thing for 2018.
  17. Great - just bought the deal - £36 for one year which includes 4 free tickets per year - although the tickets can't be used for "premium price events" so no doubt ballet will be one of those! Good deal any how. Thanks again.
  18. Hi I would be interested in one ticket - if that works - understand if it doesn't. Thanks. Kathy
  19. Hello If you have a spare ticket for the matinee performance of Alice I would love it (should say £ limit is £30)- know this is a big ask .... so everything crossed...x
  20. After reading this review https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2017/jul/27/girl-from-the-north-country-review-bob-dylan-conor-mcpherson I looked at the Old Vics website to buy a £21 ticket . As ever left it for a day or two, and received an offer email from Timeout selling tickets for £15 - tickets allocated on arrival. I went to the Saturday matinee a couple of weeks ago and was allocated a £67.50 seat, row T in the stalls. Old Vic is quite small so sitting anywhere would be OK. It was a great performance - I must say the singers had outstanding voices - the woman who plays the mother with dementia was particularly surprising based on her tiny statue and the woman who played the pregnant girl was really touching. As someone suggests on here I might have to attend again. You can sign up to get newsletter emails from Timeout if your inbox can bear it.
  21. In mid June I attended the Natalia Kremen Ballet Foundation Gala at Cadogan Hall - I was sitting in row A of the side gallery - there were plenty of empty spaces so people moved around - 2 Russian women sittng behind me spoke to each other constantly for about 20 minutes - when the applause was loud enough I turned to them and asked "are you going to speak throughout the whole performance? I added "out of respect for the dancers! Luckily after the interval they found somewhere else to sit. I don't know whether this is a cultural difference - but I don't think so - when the Bolshoi were here last year there were lots of Russians in the audience and they managed to keep quiet duirng the performance. On another occasion a few years back I was sitting on a bench seat in the Stalls Circle next to a man and woman who chatted a bit to me in the interval, as the lights went down they were still chatting to each other, a person in front of them turned around and told them to shussh (which was like a red rag to a bull) - the man told them that he did not need any one to tell me to fxxxing shussh - he was so loud that a member of the orchestra, a big chap, looked over furiously. I felt so embarassed I just hoped that people would not assume I was friends with him! At the end of the performance I heard the dreadful man say to his companion that some people are so rude!!!! Talk about lack of self perception!
