Hey Guys:

Well, my trip to London has been cancelled - yeah, the volacano!!
At any rate I have the following tickets available - Ticketmaster UK won't refund but they told me if I can sell them they can have the tickets duplicated and have them available at the box office for pick-up. So, I figure I have nothing to lose by posting them here - Thanks and I was so looking forward to my visit!

Priscilla
Friday, April 23rd
Stalls
J 17 - 16

Sister Act
Monday, April 26th
Stalls
E 28 - 27

Thanks and sorry for this blatant post to recoup - would be glad to take best offer as well :)

Very sorry to hear you can't make your trip to London.

Im quite surprised they won't refund. There is a story here: http://www.whatsonstage.com/news/theatre/london/E8831271697959/Update:+Shows+Offer+Exchanges+Due+to+Volcano.html which says that Priscilla/Sister Act are exchanging tickets. I would be tempted to ring back ticketmaster and, in so many words, let them have it. Ask to speak to managers/higher ups and you might get somewhere.

Also, if that fails have you tried speaking to the theatre box offices directly?

Thanks guys - tried all that and was told that they were really doing me a favor as their policy is one of absolutely no refunds or exchanges.

Hope you guys are holding up well - my loss of tickets is really nothing compared to some of the stories I've been reading in other posts!

Really sorry to hear of your flight plight, but that thread title: so much comic potential...

Seriously, if this was on the Broadway board, I'd be skewered more ways than you can count!!! You guys are so much more polite and forgiving :)

"I'd be skewered more ways than you can count" Are you a fan of Carry On films by any chance? Bummed in New York

Really sorry to hear of your travel woes - tis indeed a bummer to have to cancel a trip you were really looking forward to.

I'd do what Mark suggests and either ring the box offices direct or go back to ticket'master' and raise merry hell - no way are they doing you a favour in the current chaos. The least they could do is offer an exchange. Failing all else I suppose you could try a Buy-It-Now listing on Ebay?

Good luck anyway, hope you can salvage something out of this mess and get to make your visit to London at a later date.
Seen some shows in my time....

I never realised you couldn't get your money back if you had to change dates etc (it's never happend yet). I just assumed ticketmaster et al would re-sell them. Does that happen in NYC as well?
Really sorry your trip was postponed - my friend missed his week in Vegas and my sister missed her Miami trip last weekend Bummed in New York
