This latest offering from Mischief Theatre looks like being no less popular than their previous productions and could be a West End fixture for some time to come. For bargain hunters looking for cheap tickets to Magic Goes Wrong it would be a good idea to avoid both weekends and peak times such as school holidays when demand will outweigh supply and this will reflect on the price. If you must book during busy periods then the upper circle will deliver some value in the price but it is worth noting that this is a magic show (albeit a very chaotic one!) therefore the nearer you are to the stage the better.
It is rare to see official discount Magic Goes Wrong tickets either online or in the retail outlets in and around Leicester Square however during the quiet weeks following on from school holidays and also the off peak months of November, January and February there is usually good value to be found as producers attempt to fill the theatre and tend to offer good deals to agents and suppliers which they can then pass onto the consumer.
This will usually depend on the production however as it is not the largest of theatres the West End has to offer there does tend to be some value for upper circle tickets at the Apollo Theatre as there is very little restricted view seating so the only real issue is the height above the stage.
This really depends on whether you prefer to be seated in the stalls on the ground floor looking directly at the stage or on the first floor in the dress circle looking down at the stage from an elevated position. Both sections have their own merits and also several different price bands to choose from, which should be noted and taken into account as this could be a major factor when deciding which tickets to book. The upper circle also offers value in the price but as they are situated on the second floor these seats are generally speaking not as good as the other two sections. It is always advisable to check the seating plan before you buy theatre tickets at the Apollo to ensure maximum value for money as finding the cut off rows for the different price bands can bring big savings.
