I know that previews don't start until October 25, but am curious to know if there's any buzz about the new production of Porgy & Bess. Does anyone have any news?

i havent heard any buzz as yet, but i really want to see this. Slighty put off by the high ticket prices though. The cheapest seats are 45 going up to 75

Cheapest seats are 20! They might be crappy but still...also there are day seats which are 20. Only a few are 75...I'm really excited to see this, it has a great cast!

joshy, would you have more information on the day seats? It just say on the Ambassador website "A limited number of top price seats are available at the box office from 10am on the day of the performance for 20 each." Would you know where in the theatre they will be?

cool, i was just looking at the official site. If i can get cheaper seats then i'm there. I've always been a fan of Clarke Peters, and from what i hear this production has a cast of 40 plus

Ambassadors Theatre Group should be boycotted for sending ticket prices that high... They are a fat cash cow with no interest in the "art" of theatre or performance. All they are interested in is money, money and more money. Their drinks prices are discusting, their programmes are cheap and tacky, their staff don't give a toss and for the most part they stage over priced, shoddy, middle-class consumer entertainment with some tart from Corrie.

Scum.

it's a fabulous show
