The article on "London for Theater Lovers" (Feb. 21) brought back the most wonderful memories! My husband and I and our two daughters spent a week last Thanksgiving gorging on theater and mussels (at Belgo Centraal Restaurant). We purchased tickets before we left Agoura Hills and saw a production a night, five nights in a row. We find the audiences in London enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Sarah, 14, and Rebecca, 10, particularly enjoyed "interval" (intermission), when they could consume, right at their seats, the world's most lusciously rich ice cream.
Why pay a 23% surcharge for London theater tickets, as your writer did through Albemarle of London? I booked tickets for "Chicago" through Ticketmaster UK's Web site, http://www.ticketmaster.co.uk, with only a 1-pound surcharge (about $1.75) per ticket. You can also call Ticketmaster at 011-44-171-316-4709.
