I went to London to see Hamilton, realised I could be waiting years for it to come up north. Wasn't too expensive, they had matinées on Thursdays. So just went forward a few months and got myself a ticket for £75 and train tickets for about £40 (could've got cheaper ones but wanted to have a bit more time in London). Visited the London Eye, and Sealife centre beforehand as well (good old MAP). Book of Mormon I saw in Manchester, ticket was about £13 (train ticket actually cost more). And Les Mis in Liverpool, again a pretty cheap ticket. I'm lucky being in Liverpool we've got a number of theatres putting on productions (the Everyman and Playhouse probably my favourites) and Manchester 30 minutes down the road with a major theatre outside Oxford Road station.
