Noone made it up. Dianne was poorly in the first week of April. She took Monday-Wednesday of that week of and had holiday the week before. And she WAS poorly because she herself said so.
ETA; Sorry I posted just after you so didn't see your post. I'm planning on staying away from this topic now anyway. It's getting a tad bit ridiculous.

The thing is, there's a difference between laughing at something and actively distracting the cast which I think is the case in point here. I've been at many a show where the front row signed and dancing along to Wonderful, or deliberately try and distract the cast. Yes, that is distracting of course, and I've seen Wicked more than once. Laughing at something that the cast are already laughing at...and let's face it Kerry is hardly wonderful at keeping a straight face in that scene as it is, is an entirely difference kettle of fish than being disruptive and loud for no particular reason.
Its happened, its done. And I sincerely doubt that anything will ever come from this apart from a few bruised impressions of Kerry by some fans. There's always going to be elitism between Wicked fans, seemingly starting from a select few of you guys who think you're high and mighty here.

Mon-Wed is the quietest, getting busier towards the weekend and campers for a Saturday, apparently. (This direct from the lovely and helpful AV box office people)
When I went on a Wednesday, I got there at 8.40am and I was about 7th or 8th in the queue. But bear in mind some of those people were queuing for the matinee. As it got nearer 10, the queue got steadily bigger, and at 10 it was some way down the street, more people than there were day tickets available.
9.30am may be pushing it I'm afraid... but you never know, you might get lucky. Try asking nicely, with a cheeky smile, about student tickets (you only need a YP railcard to get one - if you're 25 or under you could get one before Mon 20th!) and these are best available for £25 - you'd likely be front stalls.
Or else, head over about 6pm just before the box office shuts and try the cheeky smile asking about returns, if you offer £25 you may just get lucky for something near the front of the stalls
See above! You'll likely get a good deal with your student cards I reckon a Monday getting there between 8.30am-9am will get you dayseats close to the centre... I'll post back my experiences on Wed 22nd!
Ahh... we know ourselves we're not fangirls, we just enjoy the show and think Kerry is a great performer... so who cares what other people think, if they judge us without knowing us, then more fool them!
Wow this was really long. Sorry. I just like to help!
Thanks for the advice you gave Unfortuantely, it was just our luck that we got delayed by two hours as an accident in in Hammersmith affected everyone getting into London, so we didn't arrive at the box office till about 11:30. They had one day seat left, so we picked the solution of my friend taking that seat while I bought a student seat (she isn't a student). The lady was really nice and helpful and put me in row F16 of the stalls, so I was fairly close to my friend.
Anyway, it was my second time seeing the show and I enjoyed it a lot more this time There was an incident in the opening, where the ushers came rushing down near us to stop a girl (part of this big family) from recording (I saw the odd flash go off too). People clearly didn't realise that message which meant 'The use of recording and flash photography is strictly forbidden!'.
And the crowd itself seemed fine! There was barely any screaming, so the Kerry fangirls (at least the annoying, loud ones) must have taken the night off, just seemed like a normal crowd who wanted a night out at the theatre, so all good Kerry seems on top form at the moment too, her 'No Good Deed' is FIERCE and really shows off how effortless she makes it all seem.
Glad I saw it again and my friend loved it!
