Title: Old Vic dates and booking
Post by: goon525 on April 30, 2019, 01:08:04 pm
The Old Vic has announced dates as follows:-

Previews 18-29 June 2020
Performances 1 July - 22 August 2020, including matinees Weds and Sat.

At the moment, booking only seems open for Old Vic members, haven’t been able to find general booking dates. But maybe we'll get some priority via MK.com?

The old Vic page doesn't have any detail about the cast, I fear it's different. I don't mind how good it is the new cast, the one from Edinburgh was just perfect and will be weird to see other different cast, specially to listen to different voices in the oficial record.

I really hope it's the same cast.  They were amazing, particularly Matthew Pidgeon as Gordon.

Agree.  I suppose it'll depend if they're available.

I imagine the cast won’t be finalised until much nearer the time - it is well over a year away! I would hope the main characters remain, but wouldn’t be surprised at a couple of changes in the lesser roles.

Thanks!   I'm hoping for the first week in July, to avoid school holidays later in July and August and also to avoid weekends when trains to London may be disrupted for work on the lines, etc!

I’ve also booked for 1 July, though in the stalls. Perhaps we could meet up? I’ll be there with Mrs Goon525.

Yes, that would be lovely!  I look forward to meeting you both, next year!   :)

I think this time I will try one of the previews... let's see if I can reach to an agreement with my friends and buy tickets.

Bear in mind that’s an overall queue for the Old Vic, which has lots on - not just Local Hero.

Any chance an administrator could add a 'Who's Going When' for the Old Vic?

This time I bought for one of the previews, June 27th...

As this is the next thing happening... it would be a good idea.

I'm already booking flights and hotels for it and maybe some of you are doing or already did the same, would be great to meet some of you!
