Covered in scars she's done nothing to earn, Cathy tells it from finish to start, as Jamie runs from start to finish in a New York love story turned sour.

Oli Higginson and Molly Lynch reprise their triumph in this production first seen at the Southwark Playhouse Theatre in 2020.

This show was originally scheduled to run at the Vaudeville Theatre, but has been moved to the larger Garrick Theatre by popular demand.



From the September 2020 Southwark Playhouse run is available here.

Based on paying FULL PRICE (no discount!) for tickets, site writers and contributing guests have ALSO created the colour-coded plans for "value for money," considering factors like views, comfort and value-for-money compared with other same-priced seats available.

Some notes for this extra event appear below. For a full discussion, opinions, reviews, notes, tips, hints and advice on all the seats in this theatre, visit the theatre page (link at the top of this page) and click on "BEST SEAT ADVICE" (on the left of your screen).

On the plans below:
Seats in GREEN many feel may offer either noticeable value, or something to compensate for a problem; for example, being a well-priced restricted view ticket. Any seats coloured LIGHT GREEN are sold at "premium" prices because the show producer thinks they are the best. The monkey says "you are only getting what you pay for" but uses this colour to highlight the ones it feels best at the price, and help everybody else find equally good seats nearby at lower prices.

Seats in WHITE, many feel, provided about what they pay for. Generally unremarkable.

Seats in RED are coloured to draw attention. Not necessarily to be avoided - maybe nothing specific is wrong with them, other than opinions that there are better seats at the same price. Other times there may be something to consider before buying – perhaps overpricing, obstructed views, less comfort etc.

Please remember that cheaper seats often do not offer the same view / location quality as top price ones, and that ticket prices are designed to reflect this difference.

To enable "social distancing," available locations may vary.

The front rows of the stalls should be excellent for this intimate show, no need to go for premium seats behind. Take row R over Q as the price drops there, but take centre block X over W, as X is raised for a better view. Note that there are no reductions for restricted view tickets, so take those last.

In the dress circle, the ends of rows B and C are decent at third price, and the centre of row E is also worth a look at second.

In the upper circle, pricing is fair, and if you want a central view at bottom price the middle of row E isn't bad value. Outer seats in other rows have more legroom, so the trade-off is comfort or view. 

The monkey advises checking performance times on your tickets and that performances are happening as scheduled, before travelling.

Tuesday at 8pm
Wednesday at 8pm
Thursday at 3pm and 8pm
Friday at 8pm
Saturday at 3pm and 8pm
Sunday at 3pm

Runs 1 hour 30 minutes approximately, with no interval.

Theatres use "dynamic pricing." Seat prices change according to demand for a particular performance. Prices below were compiled as booking originally opened. Current prices are advised at time of enquiry.
