“Monkey – Journey to the West” two for one offer – and deal on “August: Osage County” – both deals ending December 23


Today’s Metro had deals on two shows I thought were worth sharing. First, Monkey: Journey to the West (which I saw in July at the Opera House and enjoyed) has two for one tickets if you quote “Xmas 2 for 1” when you all 0844 847 1665 to book tickets. This deal is only good for the shows on Wed 17-Fri 19 at 8 PM, Sat 20 at 3 PM and 8 PM, Sun Dec 21 at 1 PM and 5:30 PM, and Tuesday 23 December at 3 PM and 8 PM. The run at the O2 ends January 4th.

Another deal is being offered on August: Osage County, possibly the best play I’ve seen all year (absolutely four stars) and without doubt the most impressive script to come out of America in years. It’s only a little deal – £5 off £40/£30 tickets – but it comes with a free drink, which will certainly help you get into the spirit of the show. The fine print reads “Call 020 7452 and quote ‘Metro Reader Offer.’ Book before December 23, valid on performances until Dec 23 excluding Saturday evenings.” Okay, there you have it, now go to the nmational and see it now!

    I really loved Journey to the West. Although your comments are fair in part there are a few songs dedicated to Pigsy and the River demon which explore their karmic state. Further, should the opera have gone into depth as the book does it may have been a much longer epic. I thought it was a good balance between modernity and tradition which would be appealing to westerners. I saw the Journey to the west production some years back of the Beijing opera at Saddlers Wells who performed with impeccable traditional martial arts, movement and singing. Damon Alburn’s production however has broad appeal which I think is good as it promotes Chinese culture to a wider audience. Maybe it might stimulate further interest in Chinese culture and people might want to investigate ‘wu kong’ (the realisation of emptiness) and attend taji wu xigong lessons…..sorry for the plug.
