Theatre Offer: up to pounds 12 off tickets for 'Travesties'
Sunday 15 May 1994
It's a very funny show, directed by Adrian Noble, and featuring a central performance of great verve from Antony Sher (right), as a British diplomat of a kind you are unlikely to see on True Brits. Irving Wardle hailed it as a 'glorious production' which 'exhibits the young Stoppard as a writer whose sense of theatre entitles him to make up his own rules'. More than most plays, it is worth seeing twice, to enjoy all of the epigrams you were laughing too loudly to catch the first time.
Travesties runs to 4 June and readers of the IoS can see it at a discount. For any performance except Saturday night, top-price seats (which cover 80 per cent of the house) are reduced from pounds 22 to pounds 14. For students and OAPs, there is a flat rate of pounds 10: this buys the best available seat, which is very likely to be worth pounds 22, but may be pounds 18 or pounds 14 if all the pounds 22 tickets have gone. Just ring or visit the Savoy box office (071-836 8888, open 10am-8pm Mon-Sat), mentioning our name.
Savoy, WC2, Mon-Sat 7.30- 10.15pm, mat Sat 2.30-5.15pm.
