theatre book contents

  • On London’s Theatres: On any given night, thousands of actors are entertaining hundreds of thousands of visitors, in hundreds of venues. Some for one-night only, others for ten, twenty, even sixty years! Whatever may come and go, for eight performances a week, fifty-two weeks a year, London’s theatres collectively play host to the greatest show on earth!
  • On Seats: the cheapest seating in any theatre seems to be reserved for gods and kings… but here, surrounded by the starving actors of the future and the booze-sodden has-beens of the past, we can witness the stand- out performances of the present and say – we were there!
  • On Saving Money: Be flexible – The date, the show, the seats and the package all have an effect on the price.
  • On Pre- Theatre Dinnerthe most perfect symbiosis: All we want is a quick but enjoyable meal, all restaurant owners want to give us is a quick but enjoyable meal, maybe with a bottle of wine thrown in.
  • On London Hotels: The next few years may be the best time to come to London EVER. All hotels in London spent the last 8 years gearing up for the Olympics of 2012….So now there are a lot of recently refurbished hotels in London with lovely rooms and pristine public areas looking for someone to fill the void left by the atheletes.
  • On London Underground: Do ask for help – after they get over the shock of being spoken to like a human being, Londoners can be very helpful!
  • On Rickshaws: Yes it looks fun, well maybe not on a cold night, but my advice is don’t risk it. I know I am being a kill-joy, but if I said “go for it” and then there was an incident I would never forgive myself.
  • On Touts: Do not even own up to having a wallet!
