London’s West End and New York’s Broadway; the world’s two great capitals of theatre.

To celebrate our autumn giveaway, in which we’re giving anyone who buys a ticket through Official London Theatre or at our TKTS ticket booth before 26 November the chance to win a trip to Broadway, we’ve delved into the big box of theatrical stats that we keep in the corner of OLT Towers to create a special transatlantic supershows infographic.
