West End Whingers are just big old softies really.
Just as they can’t resist a good offer, they also can’t help sharing them with others. Beady-eyed as ever, they’ve see an interesting one for the almost sublime production of Tennessee Williams’ classic The Glass Menagerie at the Apollo Theatre.
Not only does this show star two-time Oscar winner Jessica Lange, but also has a real find in newcomer Amanda Hale.
Andrew’s eye (he only has the one, but it can still spot a star in the making when it sees one) was seen to produce a real tear watching her heart-breaking performance. And this probably wasn’t due to the nasty virus which he generously shared with the rest of the audience that night. Phil was also impressed, especially by Andrew’s emotion: he doesn’t do it himself.
The offer is for a 2 course dinner at the Ritz with a glass of champagne and a top price ticket for the show for £75. Yes it’s a bit steep for the Whingers but it is yer actual Ritz not the bathhouse with Rita Moreno.
Just call 0870 534 4444 and quote ‘Glass Menagerie Meal Deal’. Valid Monday-Thursday for the duration of what the Whingers hope will be a very long run.
And if you can’t stretch to this glamorous offer you can always join us in the queue for the ticket booth which is selling seats at half price. Outrageous.
