I had two ,2-show days in London and 1 show on Friday. It got very busy at times but was an amazing fun experience. This blog is what I got up to on Wednesday!
Heres what happened:
Wednesdsay- I was seeing Folles at 2:00 at the national theatre. I got my ticket half price because I am under 18 which is a great discount to introduce theatre to younger Audiences. I sat in L40 which was £34. And had the best view. I wasn’t too far away and I wasn’t too close. Also the legroom and comfort of the seat was the best I have experienced! This was my first time visiting the national and it was such a nice experience. There was a very interesting exhibition on sets and I would love to go on a backstage tour!
The programme was £5 I think and I got the script for £9.99. The programme is the pink one underneath the script. The programme was very thick and had good info on the show. I personally really like getting the scripts and reading them because it helps me “relive” the production if that makes sense! Read my full thoughts on Follies in my review!
I saw every show on my own and I do like talking to people, so a lovely woman sat next to me and turns out she saw the original Follies 30 years ago! She was so nice and kind to me and made my trip to the national unforgettable. I do recommend talking to people in the theatre. And if you aren’t sure about seeing shows on your own then doing worry because there are loads of people who see theatre on their own. No one gives you weird looks (I was scared about that) and you should start a conversation with the person sat next to you.
Anyway after Follies I had a lovely meal at Flat Iron before watching Come From Away at the Phoenix Theatre.
I sat in row K 24 and the view was amazing. Its the very back row of the dress circle and you are still very close but the legroom wasn’t great but not the worse! This seat I got for £35 but I checked for later on in the run for seats and they have increased to £55! £35 seats are now at the rear of the upper circle! I got a programme which was £5.00, a t-shirt for £20 and a mug for £10.Yep. Bit excited at the march stand.The phoenix theatre is a very nice theatre but it was a bit too warm. Read my full thoughts for Come From Away in another blog post.*I loved it*
Wednesday was very successful in seeing 2 new shows and visiting 2 new theatres!
