Just wondering whether tickets on Broadway cost more or less than the West End?

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

And Starbucks will use the words 'large' and 'small', not pretentious crap like grande and tall.

Yeah, on the West End only big hits are expensive (eg- Mary Poppins or The Producers for 125 American bucks), not like 101 bucks for In My Life.

No, they pretty much are the same.

About 50-55 pounds for top musical tickets.

35-45 pounds for top play tickets.

Well, if you're buying them over the phone from America, West End tickets are much more expensive because of the ridiculous service charge.

The shows I've seen in the West End were about the same or more than ticket prices to Broadway shows. The 'big' shows like Guys and Dolls, Billy Elliot, WIW, etc. are going to be more than you'd pay on Broadway. The service charges are even higher than here.
