West End: Last Minute Tickets?
I'm going to London on a school trip next week, and we'll have free time Thursday afternoon and evening. Naturally, I'll be seeing a show - I'm just not sure which yet. I'm interested in Les Misérables, Chicago, Avenue Q, The Phantom of the Opera, Oliver!, Grease, Jersey Boys, Sweet Charity (in this order). Any suggestions?
Anyway, I was wondering if I should order tickets beforehand or if it's better to wait until Thursday afternoon to buy them. I heard you could get cheap last minute tickets on the day of the show, is that true? If so, I thought my friend and I could buy some in the early afternoon, then go shopping, and then return for the show in the evening. What do you think?
