Theatre Royal Haymarket has recently had a run of these historical dramas - Mr Foote's Other Legge and The Libertine - and the RSC is resident there now with Love's Labour's Lost and Much Ado About Nothing. So Queen Anne should feel at home there!
Have any of them been successes? i always see loads of offers for that place
Not 100% sell-out hits. TRH always prices its tickets at the top end of the range for West End drama which I suppose gives them scope for some later discounting. It's a stand-alone theatre, not part of any ATG or Nimax or Really Useful mega-conglomerate, and so can't cross-subsidise commercial flops with hits in other theatres.
Many West End productions do routinely also sell via TKTS, though - I don't think that's necessarily a bad sign and if it helps some people attend, why not?
No one's complaining! I am delighted. I just worry that people might be losing money.
Don't worry, that Haymarket/RSC season was priced really stupidly high just to maximise income from tourists and early-adopters over Xmas, there was obviously loads of room to discount. Really they should have done the Almeida thing of just directly pricing it differently during the run (Almeida prices are higher at the start and end of runs).
