£10 deals for May – Plague over England, Dancing at Lughnasa, On the Waterfront, the Tigerlillies, and more

May 1, 2009

As the season changes and shows come to the end of their runs, there are good deals to be had for the patient theater-goer. First, there’s a one day only deal for Dancing at Lughnasa at the Old Vic for May 4th, Bank Holiday Monday, the only discount I’ve seen on this show for its whole run. To get it, call the box office at 09=870 060 6628 and quote “Metro.” Everyone I know has been really enthusiastic about this show, so this is a great opportunity to see it for pennies (as it were) on the dollar (as it were again). It ends May 9th so I don’t think they’ll be repeating the offer.

Also ending their runs and sweetening their pots are Plague over England at the Duchess Theater(£10 tickets for all shows except Saturday evenings, promo code ATG12), running through May 16th, and Woman in Mind (ditto, ATG13) at the Vaudeville Theatre through May 30th.

Meanwhile, TheLondonPaper are running a deal for The Tiger Lillies for £10 at the Soho Theatre through May 9th, but I’m going a bit crazy trying to find the specifics of the promo as I’ve left my copy of the Thursday LondonPaper at home. Ah, figured it out: call the theater (020 7478 0100) and say you saw the deal in the LondonPaper! Easy peasy. 🙂

In a more future-oriented view, the shockingly helpful Evening Standard have piles of tickets for ENO at £10 each. Così fan Tutte,
Madam Butterfly and L’Amour de Loin – you could have a summer full of opera for pennies! To get the opera, go to this page, select a date and location (dress circle or balcony), and choose your tickets! Cosi dates are May 29 through July 5, Butterfly is June 10 through July 10, and L’Amour is July 3 through July 11th.

All of these are of course in addition to the normal £10 series at the National and the ready availability of £10 seats at the Royal Court Theater, where I’m catching Aunt Dan and Lemon at that price on Tuesday, May 26th. Exquisite Corpse at the Southwark Playhouse can also be enjoyed for even less, £8, if you book far enough in advance. Enjoy!
