Two out of Joe Wright's last 4 films have starred Keira Knightley, so wonder if she might be involved?

Josie Rourke is quoted in The Stage online, saying it's about rebalancing the opportunities for theatre work for older female actors, so it's neither a gimmick nor a directorial interpretation. The Barclays Front Row scheme is intended to encourage new audiences, so the reactions of the old audiences on this forum are perhaps a tad irrelevant.

As for the seating. I quite like sitting in the front row from time to time. So now i wont get. Front row gives direct link made with the action. But the rake is excellent at Donmar and you can't be far back in the stalls. I always book early and usually in the priority period so let's see what they give me.

A lot of it seems to be about perceptions - people assume they can't get Domnar tickets so don't try, whereas anyone who hangs out here knows you can pretty much always pick up tickets during the run, even for hot tickets like the Jude Law thing.

I love being irrelevant. Maybe I am being entirely selfish, (ok i am) but will it not mean for those who need to plan more than 2 weeks in advance (which i do) that they'll find it harder to get tickets due to less of them. I cannot ring up every monday (i'd get fired) so feel bit peeved as a someone who is paying out for membership, or does that lead us back to a similar discussion regarding the national in that membership is about support not benefits. Well I admit i'm looking for benefits, I like sitting on the front row and it doesn't look like that will be easy now.
honestly makes me admit that in truth Latecomer has patiently queue weighted for the last few donmar productions i've seen!
