It started with a single thank you note, and went on to become a life-long correspondence between Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner.

Roy Marsden directs Martin Shaw and Jenny Seagrove in A.R. Gurney's play.

 

Not available.

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.

This theatre does not have specific seats held "off sale" like other theatres have done, to enable "social distancing." Their system automatically takes adjacent seats off-sale as the booking is confirmed. There will be at least a metre front to back and there will be an empty seat between each booking bubble. As a result, locations may vary.

Theatre Royal, Haymarket value seating plan

There are almost no changes to the advice given for regular production "Only Fools and Horses" at this venue. The only extra notes are that in the stalls there are fewer premium seats, making rows F and K very good value. Prices drop at row P to second price, and even better at row S to third. Also the sound desk isn't used - making third price row V equally acceptable. 

In the dress circle, central row C is no longer premium and thus good value. Better still, row G is second price in the middle... or you could sit off to the sides in E or G for third price - total bargain if you just avoid the outermost seat, thinks the monkey.

In the upper circle and balcony, distancing means seats will have more legroom to the sides.

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