We were lucky to get tickets for this by going to the theatre to book direct. We booked in the morning for the evening performance and got great seats on row F in the Stalls for £99 each.
We decided to take our seats early and we’re so pleased we did as we saw the full pre show which was great for setting the scene and atmosphere.
From the minute you walk in to take your seat, you are hit with an amazing set which encompasses the theatre, we’re talking an elephant, multiple chandeliers, dancing birdcages and a bar at the side of the stage.
During the pre show, the cast are moving around, posing, getting drinks and dancing in the cages, a great slow, atmospheric pre show, then the show starts and you are transported to a world of beautiful costumes, singing and dancing with the love story running through it.
I admit, it took my breath away and my eyes watered in parts, not the sad part but the dancing and singing , wow,it blew me away.
My theatre partners that night are musical theatre professionals and were blown away by the show, like me, one of them cried too.
When the show finished and everyone was leaving, we didn’t hear one negative comment.
When I am next visiting London, this will be top of my list of things to do.
Top tips, get seats in the stalls if you can and get to your seat early so you don’t miss any of the pre show.
You can get Cabaret tables in front of the stage but you become part of the show with cast moving along the stage amongst the tables but I feel these are not the best seats as you will be looking up all the time and won’t have the best view of the main stage area.
