Top twelve tips for getting cheap theater tickets in London. Top 13. Top ...

I wasted most of my evening (once I got back home) making a list of all the ways I know to get cheap theater seats. I wrote 12 and then J reminded me of another and then I remembered even one more, so while it was originally twelve, now it's fourteen. So if you're interested in how I manage to support my "glamorous lifestyle" of eight shows a month (or so) - I've spilled my guts here. I have to keep my theater expenses down or I just couldn't go (thus why I haven't been to Hairspray yet) - my lid is at about 20 quid per and I really try to buy tickets for even less. I guess I could have added something like, "And then if you don't buy makeup or new clothes or new shoes and bring your lunch to work every day you can see even more shows!" but that's more of a matter of how I prioritize spending money and not really so much a tip. Buy less "stuff," have more experiences - it's a way of life, really, but not what everyone wants to do. And thanks to all of you who pitched in to get me a Donmar membership for my birthday, it was really a great present, even six months (and more) after the fact.

At any rate, for my fellow theater lovers and penny pinchers, I hope you find my post useful.
