FUNNY GIRL - No laughing matter 
When it was announced that Sheridan Smith would take the role of FUNNY GIRL at the Menier Chocolate Factory, we just knew this would be a hot ticket and a group booking would be difficult. So it proved. Menier members have priority booking but group bookers have to wait for general booking to open and phone for tickets. I was ready to book when phone lines opened today. I had checked after midnight last night and realised that at least half the tickets were already sold. They were available for individuals to book on line then, but for a group I had to phone this morning. I checked availability for a variety of possible group dates for when the phonelines opened.
This morning already many perfs had sold out and remaining tickets were disappearing fast. I phoned and redialled continuously for 30 minutes. When the phone was answered I was held in a queue for 20 minutes and I could see the tickets disappearing for the performances I had my eye on. By the time they answered there were about 40 tickets left, enough for a small group, but I was told I could have no more than 12! We have managed to book 60 tickets for many previous shows at the Menier, but this was a new limitation. 
"It's a small theatre" I was told, as if I didn't know. "Smaller than last time I booked 60?", I felt like asking. They knew the show would sell out and had no need to encourage group bookings. A miserly twelve tickets was no good for our group booking so I had to give up - many apologies to all Sheridan Smith and Funny Girl fans. By 10.00 only single tickets remained and by 10.30 the whole run had completely sold out.  
However, a transfer to the West End is likely and a Broadway transfer is rumoured too. We can't take you to Broadway, but as soon as booking opens for a West End theatre we shall do our best to book you in. Will you be interested? I hope so.
