I let myself be sucked into the todaytix offer because 12 noon isn't a great time for me. Probably not got the best deal but got some central upper circle seats and I now just won't look at what I could have had in public sale! Anyone else ever have to take a step back and remember they're just theatre tickets? No..I never take my own advice either..
I did exactly the same. Have ended up in the Lilian Baylis because the dress circle wasn’t on sale, but it’s just easier to be able to do it now and not join the melee at noon. Convenience over cost and all that.
(I’ve also joined OV or whatever that scheme is, and I genuinely have no idea what it’s for or if there was something OV related I could have done for this booking.)
I went back in to the TodayTix presale and there was a single £40 seat for a date I could do so I have now snapped it up - a bit more than I ideally wanted to pay, and I hate paying TodayTix fees, but my train is delayed so I will still be in the middle of nowhere at 12pm and the general sale will likely be madness enough for such a short run without having to battle dodgy 4G and train Wi-Fi!
At least I can relax a bit now, although next up is the airport security queue so maybe not quite yet...
83 on one laptop, 1664 for the other. Got one Q35 ticket and restricted view Row C dress circle ticket for a Friday night for £20 each. However credit card payment is really playing up. Tried all my cards and then returned to the first and it went through. Keep trying - it does eventually work. I was afraid it might lock me out but I tried four times on one card before it went through.
I'm certainly moving through the queue, but my estimated arrival time keeps changing. I'm also trying to get through on the phone, but this aggressively jolly song (is it from The Lorax?) combined with the way it disconnects every few minutes might prove to be my undoing. Hopefully any card issues will sort themselves by the time I get anywhere...
