While this is not yet a discount show and possibly never will be there is definitely value to be found in prices for midweek performances in off peak periods. To find good value tickets to Mary Poppins in the auditorium it is highly recommended to check the seating plan prior to purchase as due to the size of the venue there are quite a few different price bands and the cut off point for these can often produce big savings.
The Prince Edward Theatre has three tiers and there is often good value to be found for Mary Poppins tickets in all three. In the stalls the seats in row L all have a completely guaranteed clear view thanks to the corridor in front and as they sit in the second section of the stalls they are often substantially cheaper than the row in front. The same goes for row F in the dress circle which has a fantastic view of the stage but is often cheaper than the rows further forward even though the vantage point could possibly be considered to be better! The cheaper seats in the upper circle are quite high up which should always reflect in the price and row G usually offer patrons good value with a clear and unimpeded view of the stage.
There are not too many seats in the Prince Edward Theatre that have a restricted view but thankfully there are no pillars to negotiate so booking Mary Poppins tickets that do have a restriction will usually be at the back of the stalls and to the side. These seats will feature a slightly limited view in a few scenes during the show thanks to the overhang from the dress circle and the cut off from the stage on the sides but this is minor and should also be reflected in the price of the ticket. It is advisable that you always check the seating plan prior to purchase to make sure that you know exactly what you are buying to avoid any confusion or disappointment and any seats with a restricted view should be clearly marked as such.
It is highly unusual to find official discount Mary Poppins tickets however prices do tend to fluctuate in the off peak season due to basic supply and demand. If you are bargain hunting for tickets to this show it is recommended that you book during the quiet months such as November, January and February where the footfall in the West End is slow and producers will always struggle a little to fill the theatres for all 8 shows every week. This usually sees a downward movement in ticket prices and great availability for midweek performances that can bring both big savings and good value seats if you are flexible with dates.
