Based on one of the world's best loved and most extraordinary works of fiction that has sold more than fifteen million copies worldwide – Life Of Pi is the universally acclaimed new adaptation of an epic journey of hope and endurance that now descends onto the west-end stage at the Wyndham's Theatre from November 2021 featuring a breath-taking use of puppetry along with state-of-the-art visuals.
When a cargo ship sinks in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, five survivors are left stranded on a lifeboat - a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan, a Royal Bengal tiger, and a sixteen year-old boy named Pi. Everything, including time is against them, and nature can be a harsh bedfellow, how many will survive?

The Wyndham's Theatre do sometimes offer a small selection of 'day tickets' to shows for die hard bargain hunters willing to pitch up early in the morning and queue. Other ways to secure cheap tickets to Life Of Pi would be to concentrate on either midweek and off peak performances with the weeks that follow on directly after school holidays being particularly successful.
This will very much depend on market forces however theatre producers do tend to work week by week when it comes to pricing structures so it can be beneficial to check prices on a regular basis checking for potential discount tickets to Life Of Pi. There will always be quiet weeks in the West End and if you are flexible with dates then this could be very much to your advantage and potentially bring big savings.
The Wyndham's Theatre has four tiers - stalls on the ground floor with a direct view of the stage, royal circle on the first floor looking down, then the grand circle on the second floor and finally on the third floor and very high up there is the balcony. The stalls section has minor issues with the overhang from the royal circle that can affect the view of the stage from row N onwards. The four front rows are also not raked, but apart from that the stalls seats offer excellent views of the stage. In the royal circle it is only the seats in row G that can be affected from the overhang from the grand circle but there can sometimes be issues with legroom which may not be ideal for taller patrons. The seats in grand circle feature the same legroom issues and are set very high up in this theatre with the balcony section set even higher up and feels a long way from the stage, but with no restrictions to the view. Any tickets to Life Of Pi that feature a restricted view should be clearly marked for transparency and should also be priced accordingly. It is always recommended to check the seating plan thoroughly before you book.
It can be. When certain productions feature a big name in the lead role it is often the case that they will allow the understudy to perform for the midweek matinee performance and this is usually reflected in the price of the ticket so if it is the actual production that you are more interested in than the personell then it can bring big savings to check midweek matinee prices on a regular basis.
