This is the show for you if you want to see a musical, with songs you will remember and hum days later. It doesn't have the glitz/glam like the 'big' West End musicals, but I liked it better for all that.
Be sure and get there early; there is a pre-show of singing/dancing which begins about 7:10. And since the show takes place in Ireland, and includes (of course) a bar, you have the unusual option of going up on the set during intermission for a drink. (Much better than the overpriced ice cream, selling for 4.50.)
Like many theatres, they sell 'day' tickets when the box office opens at 10 am for seats in the first row (for 25 pounds). Unlike many other shows, there is no obstructed view - these are actually some of the best seats in the house.
Also note: although the address says Charing Cross Road, it is at the very top of the road, and the closest Tube station is actually Tottenham Court.
