Everybody got very excited a couple of weeks ago when Michael Grandage announced a £10 West End season, but to celebrate its eightieth birthday, the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has gone £9.75 better. Friday’s performance of the musical ‘Ragtime’ will have 200 tickets going on sale for a mere 25p – the cost of a ticket back in 1932. There will also be £19.32 tickets available for ‘Ragtime’ and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ performances up until Jul 21. A fine offer, though it does go to show modern day theatre tickets are largely a rip: adjusted for inflation, 25p comes to a mere £13.38.
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Thursday July 12 at openairtheatre.com/1932.
