invaluable your website is to me!!!"

I'm from Australia and when I pop to London for
10 days every couple of years your website is my theatre bible ;)
"I don’t think I could live without Theatre
Monkey (or, certainly, live nearly as well). I go back and forth from LA and
layover in London every chance I get and always take in a show. I immensely rely
on Theatre Monkey, scour it for counsel, and I’ve linked to purchasing lots of
tickets using discounts featured there."
"Recently become addicted to your brilliantly informative website which makes the lottery of shelling out a lot of money of entertainment much less risky!"
"We don't get to go to the theatre in Town as
much as we would like, living out in the darkest Home Counties, but when we do,
it helps to have friendly and accurate advice about the best seats to try for.
You have guided us to excellent seats each time. And recently, you saved
us £60 on tickets to 'We will Rock You' by steering us to an offer."
"Many many thanks; will pass the word around on your very helpful and informative website."

"Intrigued and impressed by your thorough website"
"your site was the first one that seemed to be genuinely concerned about the theatre-goer"
"Hats off, this is a fantastic site. The content is everything I would want to know, quickly, easily and in one place."
"Just wanted to tell you how brilliant your site is -
"fabulous site, having never been to the theatre before this year, it is wonderful to have some independent advice on the shows themselves and the details of how to get the best value for money. You are to be congratulated on how well this site works"
"one of the UK's best theatre web sites"
"Thanks to your best seat info and all-encompassing details about
"Three Cheers for Theatre Monkey. Hip Hip, Hurrah; Hip Hip,
"I found Theatremonkey last year, just in time, Madonna had agreed to do a play "Up For Grabs" and I wanted to know what tickets to go for. Well, just before this, I'd found this fantastic website and it helped me to look at seating plans.
I'd been to the theatre a number of times before and just had to take 'pot luck' with seats. Now I have the use of what i would vote the Best web site of the year (every year)
With the seating plans, the details about each seat (the good, the bad and the ugly),
and all the other information that this website has, it's a 'must view' every time I want to see a show. And if
I fancy a few shows and am going to try TKTS office for half price tickets, I print out the seating plans
take them with me. That way, when they offer a seat, I can see if it's a true bargain or if
I should look at another show that time round. TheatreMonkey Rules!"
"The information on your site is first class. Your site is SIMPLE and VERY effective. Your reviews I have found to be the most accurate. The seating information on your site is worth the visit alone".
"Thanks to theatremonkey's wonderful directions from the tube, I was able to actually find the theatre in plenty of time to collect my tickets. I am an American who visits London to see theatre and I never leave home without printing out my instructions on how to get there from the monkey".
"I still think this is the best site for theatre goers. I wish you every success".
"Your web site was such a big help in selecting, and buying, theater tickets. It was so nice to be able to look at the seating chart and choose the seat I wanted while speaking with the box office."
"I stumbled across it by accident, and it is simply brilliant, especially in terms of highlighting ‘good’ and ‘bad’ seats."
"have just had a great two week holiday in London an have spent a lot of it
in and around the West End.
"I cannot possibly tell you what a help your site was
to me when I needed to make bookings for two shows for
our upcoming visit to London. I had the 'scoop' on the
best view, best prices, even tidbits such as which row
had a bit more legroom!... I'd printed out seating charts of both venues, and
marked up the pages as to where the prime seats were located. I felt like a pro
when talking to the staff at the box office and I got exactly what I wanted.
Thank you so much!!"
"It really is the bible of theatre."
"As very regular theatre goers we NEVER book seats without consulting the monkey first for offers, seating plans etc. It is a wonderful resource which I tell everyone about who is interested in theatre."
"It really helped me with everything associated with getting tickets, seating plans AND advice/recommendations regarding whether they were restricted-view/leg-room etc, reputable places to purchase my tickets at, dress code, when not to take my own refreshments, and tons of other stuff about the ‘west end’ and theatres etc, etc. It’s a great site and you should be proud."
"I just wanted to let you know Theatremonkey may
well be the greatest site on the web ever. As a first time visitor to London,
I'm sure the guidance I got from your site will make the 15 shows I'm seeing
over 12 days even more enjoyable than they would have been otherwise."
I would like to say THANK YOU for your most
informative website! I’ve just been on it to find out about some seats at the
Royal Albert Hall and as usual found the information I required – not the best
seats but probably the best of what was left for sale. I then thought “Wow, this
website has helped me a number of times in the past and I’m truly grateful for
