The attached article explains how and when to get tickets. I am so thrilled for Timothee and you guys. I loved Eileen Atkins too in The Crown as Queen Mary... what a performance!
If this play were in NYC, I would be going there in a heartbeat. Because I'm trying to do potential California trip for Dune premiere next year, I may not be able to make or afford London right now. But I am taking notice of the dates you all are going and will advise if I do the same dates. I am so happy Teenca can attend from eastern Europe!
Any chance the play returns to NYC? And Timothee sure picks diverse projects. I was expecting a new film next but this play sounds great!
THANK YOU for this article, it gives us very important information about the engagement dates: 6 April - 23 May. I knew this would be a nice 4-6 week gig!
Prepping for Timmy for Dune is the smart thing to do, you'll see him on stage another time.
chalametthegreat, sorry for you not to come, but it's a reasonable decision. Thanks, I'm lucky because Europe is not so big, and I live in the center of Europe. All I need is an ID and a backpack (and money, haha)

Gawd!!! ID, backpack and a train ticket. I envy you! LOL!
Rather a flight ticket, but that's the case. Thanks!
3-5 rows seem perfect!
Glad you agree. I was in 2nd row for Bradley Cooper, it was great, but would have better enjoyed not straining neck. And last Tuesday, I was gifted tickets to that local play, and I was in front row. Again, great to be up close, but missed out on stage detailing that was very low to the ground. Rows 3-5 are the sweet spot.

I have decided to buy a ticket on December 3 to whatever show the consensus here chooses and hope to travel to London next year for that weekend as well. The more I think about it the more excited I am about the possible weekend experience! Thousand things need to fall into place for this to work for me so prayers and fingers crossed. Just to see Timothee on stage in London would be something I always remember. To do it with good people who like him too would be a blessing. And to maybe ... maybe ... see him at the stage door afterwards would be incredibly emotional for me. I would just ask one of you to hold my phone when he greets everyone with that smile because I suck at selfies. Good luck to us all! And I hope you dont mind me sharing my wishes this evening haha.
This is the theater poster for 4000 Miles from its 2015 San Antonio engagement. It's a handsome poster and I look forward to seeing something similar for Timmy and Eileen's London production. They gotta use Timmy's ticket selling FACE.
I've seen more plays in London and I think it's a smart move for Timmy to re-visit theatre life in the West End.
There are small differences between both these entities, London has more activity and more non-musical plays. There is also more experimentation and boundary-pushing. Whereas Broadway lately has more musicals and more family oriented shows. Ticket prices on Broadway are a little higher, and on the West End, there are more discounts for students and seniors. The theaters are about the same size with a few exceptions on both sides of the Atlantic. There are other contractual and cultural differences. However, those differences aren’t significant to the professionalism of both Broadway and the West End.
Thanks to tracyrcat waking up before 4am PST to get these tickets for me and another California friend, we're now all set. Looks like quite a few people experienced technical difficulties in securing tickets today, but some got through rather easily.
Please let me know if you're also trying to get tickets to the May 2 show as I would like to plan a dinner on either Friday or Saturday night for Club Chalamet friends who'll converge onto London to see Timmy in his West End debut in 4000 Miles! Private discussions about said dinner plan will occur in a private thread for serious interests only.
