SeatChoice.com urges fans to shop around for the best deals on tickets which could cost them up to £600.00 a pair for this ‘sold out’ production.

London, UK - March 23, 2011 -- Danny Boyle’s take on Mary Shelley’s classic gothic horror story Frankenstein is the hottest ticket in town according to leading theatre and gig ticket comparison website SeatChoice.com.

Tickets for the acclaimed production at the Olivier National Theatre on London’s South Bank have been the most searched for of all the 4,500 musicals, plays, operas, ballets and concerts currently listed on the website.

The play, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternate in the main roles of Frankenstein and The Creature, opened on the 5th of February 2011 and runs until the 2nd of May 2011.

However, with all performances now officially sold out except for a limited number of ‘day tickets’ which are only available directly from the box office in person on the day of the performance, SeatChoice.com says fans with deep pockets may still be able to find seats by shopping around.

SeatChoice.com founder Robert Iles said: “Ticket reselling sites such as Viagogo and Getmein do have some tickets available but prices are steep with a single ticket costing from £214.00 to £249.00 plus postage and a hefty arrangement or booking fee of around £78.00 on top of that. All in all fans could expect to pay between £500.00 and £600.00 for a pair of tickets.

“This is the hottest ticket in town at the moment beating even The Wizard of Oz in terms of the number of searches being carried out for seats and theatre fans who are desperate to see Frankenstein will have to shop around not only to find available tickets but also to ensure they get the best deal.”
