Rochelle’s opinion

“By far the best thing about this show is the special effects – best seen from the dress circle if you ask me. The legendary DeLorean is everything you could want and more. It’s the kind of prop that gets regular, well-deserved applause throughout. The adaptation has the songs, the characters and the iconic quotes to keep fans of the film happy, and fans do seem to love it. Traditional musical lovers may yearn for more from the book, but if you don’t take it too seriously you will find fun at every turn.”

How do I get cheap tickets?

Best last-minute deal

You can get some of the best seats in the house for just £25! On-the-day rush tickets are available through the TodayTix app at 10am. These seats can sometimes be worth nearly £100 too – what a bargain! What are rush tickets? Read my dedicated post on the last-minute deal including a step-by-step guide on how to book them.

Best for booking ahead

The cheapest seats in the house are priced at £19.55 (£19.85 at peak performances). These cheap seats can mostly be found in the upper circle – the ones near the front come pretty well recommended despite the safety bar in view. But if you love being near the action, you can get tickets at the very front of the stalls for this price too! They are on the very end of the first two rows so you will have a side-on restricted view. You also have some very loud speakers in front of you! But for the price it could be worth a go. You can check the views from the seats on Seat Plan before you book too!
