Under 30’s

To celebrate the opening earlier this month of STEPHEN SONDHEIM’S OLD FRIENDS to rave reviews at the Gielgud Theatre, Cameron Mackintosh is making 5,000 tickets available at just £25 each for theatregoers aged 30 or under to have the chance to discover the genius talent of composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Subject to availability, an allocation of Stalls and Dress Circle seats has been made available for all performances between Monday 23 October 2023 and Friday 5 January 2024. 

Cameron Mackintosh said “One of the many joys I’ve experienced during the opening performances of OLD FRIENDS is to witness night-after-night the reaction of younger audiences, many of whom I believe are hearing Stephen Sondheim’s dazzling music and lyrics for the very first time. Steve made a provision under his will for the establishment of the Stephen Sondheim Foundation to support playwrights, theatre composers and lyricists in early stages of their career. He was passionate about supporting the new generation of theatre writers and it is only right that younger theatregoers should be able to experience Stephen’s genius in this Great Big Broadway Show from great seats at an accessible price.”
