Advantages: Great show, friendly cast and crew.
Disadvantages: A little pricey for those who don'tl live in London or the surrounding areas.
I went so see Starlight Express 2 years ago, expecting some poxy little theatre with a load of idiots on roller blades. I was completely wrong! I've never seen anything so fast paced in my life! The actors are some of the best I've ever seen (and believe me, I've seen a few!), the atmospere is friendly and relaxed. The food and drink is a little pricey, but it is the London West end! The seats are fairly priced for what they are, but you get a great view from wherever you sit! Even the so called 'restricted view' seats have a good view, I would say one of the best. I would recommend standing tickets to those who wish to interact with the actors. I think it's the best place to be. It does, however get tiring, standing for so long, but it is great veiw, and also the cheapest. I recommend it to anyone who's had enough of the 'normal' musicals, and wants something a little different.
