Rubbish seats, but if your lucky, as I was, you might be able to get 1 tickets!

There [was] a typo in your link but I worked it out and got a ticket for 1, it is in the Grand Circle but is still a 42.50 seat normally, and white on theatremonky.com so shouldn't be too bad.

It lets you buy up to 4 tickets so could be a really cheap night out for a family.

West End theatre tickets for 1
What certainty do you have that these are yours for that price?
The company themselves only get best seats for 25 depending on how busy the house is!

well, i just bought a seat for next wednesday for 1, plus booking fee of course, if your lucky enough for 1 to come up, click the link below and it re-directs to a see tickets page that lets yo buy seats for 1, but only if you've clicked the link under 1, my seat is at the middle of grand circle, but 3.50 including booking fee, you cant complain!

Well firstly these aren't best seats for 1.
The purchasing is through seetickets.com once you have 'won'

I didn't have a booking fee so it was just 1, and they will post the ticket to me.

I will post a picture when it comes :)

My bad, just saw they didnt charge me a booking fee, i just guessed as the tickets are so cheap, so they have billed be 1, and my seat isn't that bad as it turns out as I got the circles mixed up as they have different names to what is on my seating plan!

YOU WILL LOVE IT!
It is a great big huge Broadway comedy!
Camp, spectacular and very, very silly.
If I get to go tonight it will be the 4th time I've seen it.
I hope to catch it in Barcelona the weekend after next!

Oh I've seen it before, but left half way through as I was back row of top circle, could see nothing, had NO leg room, and anything i COULD hear was blocked out by the two idiots next to me laughing very loudly all the way through, what I did catch I wasn't kean on, but I felt I should give this show a fair chance before I judge it!

Oooh thanks for this! My flatmate wants to see Spamalot before it closes, and am not massively keen to fork out loads for another trip to London, but with tickets for a tenner(pound ones are sold out re: Spamalot Spinalot) and overnight megabus there and back and it may be doable...people will just have to make do with tesco value xmas presents this year!

Thinking about it, and considering the friends I'd be buying for, perhaps Spamalot tickets would be a good Xmas present!

I got my ticket today :)
D28 in the Grand (upper) Circle for 1.
It is a 3rd price seat normally so I'm chuffed.

I am now sat in my 1 seat in the interval. Apparently sanjeev doesn't do Tuesdays now (I knew he didn't do Mondays any more, he now does neither)
I wish I knew when I booked, his understudy is great, but he was great last time too!
Oh well, well worth a quid.

I saw the show tonight too.
I thought the two understudies were fantastic esp Arthur played by the gorgeous Oliver Tydman.
We didn't know that Sanjeev Bhaskar now doesn't do Monday and Tuesday performances but o be honest i really didn't want to see him.
Amy Field has a superb voice, was a brilliantly funny and beautiful 'Lady Of The Lake'.
The show is still in great shape and it looks like the cast are having a great time.

I did notice there were a lot of Asian audience members and it made me think that the publicity stating Mr Bhaskar being out on Mon and Now Tues isn't very strong.I'm sure they were there to see him.
Looking at the Evening Standard listings it only states Mondays he's off. If fact its only a statement on the centre pages of the actual program that states from Nov 16th he 's out for the two.

It all seems odd to me. When I went last time I presumed it was bad luck, it wasn't an announced night off. The staff told me not to book a Monday as he didn't do those any more. I booked for a Tuesday and after I booked (I presume) it was decided that he wouldn't do Tuesdays either. I know there would have been peole far more disappontes than me about this.
Shouldn't they have let us know after we booked that sanjeev wouldn't be on, they are relying on him so heavily for promotion and it seems selling him more than the show.
I still had a great night, don't get me wrong, but I really wanted to see sanjeev.

I100% understand your frustration and if i was you i would take it further with the box office. As i said the only place that i see it announced he's off on Tues is inside the program- thats after you've spent 60 for a ticket (in your case 1), bought a program and taken time to notice the little box printed on the centre page.
I didn't notice anything in the box office area when we picked up our tickets.
I would approach the box office in person if you can as these kind of things get lost easily on the phone.
* I don't have much time at he mo but I've just had a quick look at the website and in the little time I had I cant spot anything regarding his off dates.

If you book tickets through SeeTickets (linked to from the official Spamalot site) it says that he's off on Mondays and Tuesdays, and also lists his other scheduled holiday dates.

I got a 10 ticket a couple of weeks ago (1s were sold out), right on the centre aisle in row C of the grand circle. Not a bad seat at all, great view.

Sanjeev Bhaskar was fine as Arthur, not brilliant but pretty good. My favourites in this cast are Gerard Carey as Herbert/Fred and (especially) Andrew Spillett as Patsy.
