Ticket prices can be high, sometimes as much as £70 (or £100 for so calledpremium seats), even more if buying from an agency. However, the cheapest tickets can be aslow as £15 depending on the day of the week (although they may not be great views!)Some West End theatres are not located in the West End. A couple are in Victoria, but areclassed as West End because of their size and investment. The seating capacities can rangefrom around 250 to over 2,000.NT and GLOBE THEATREThe National Theatre (NT) and the Shakespeare Globe Theatre are two of the most popularrepertory companys in London. (Generally repertory theatre in London is when a selection ofshows are rotated every few days so you can see several shows in one week at the same venue,some with the same cast)The National Theatre (NT) is subsidised, which means it can take a risk with new and unknownwriters, and plays that may not appeal to a wide audience. Having said that, probably the bestplays are performed here. The very successful productions can transfer to the West End for acommercial run.The Royal National complex houses three theatres, the Olivier, the Lyttelton and the Cottesloe,and as most performances are in repertory, you can see many plays in one week. TheShakespeare Globe Theatre season runs from April to September, and of course it mainlyperforms Shakespearean plays.THE FRINGE/OFF WEST END/OTHERSmaller theatres, including many pub theatres, are called Fringe, although some of these smalltheatres are also called Off West End, particularly those located in the West End of London,where most of the big commercial theatres are. These small theatres can vary in size, withseating capacities of around 40 to 400.can see some superb plays in these small theatres, and prices are much lower than those in theWest End. The size of Fringe theatres brings you very close to the action and can provide amore intimate experience than the big West End theatres. 2
  3. 3. There are also some commercial theatres in London that are not West End or Fringe, like theRichmond and Wimbledon theatres, which are generally classed as regional. These theatres aremainly receiving houses for touring shows, which play for only a week or two.1 DEFINE REPERTOIRE THEATRE:2 EN QUE SE DIFERENCIA EL NATIONAL THEATRE (NT)DEL RESTO DE LOSTEATROS??
