The below article has been taken from the transcript of our YouTube video

With seemingly the whole world buzzing about Netflix’s Bridgerton at the moment, we wanted to do a bit of a dive into the cast member Jonathan Bailey’s West End career, aka the hot mess that is Anthony Bridgeton. Now you may know him as the dreamy older brother of Daphne but did you know that he’s an Olivier Award winner?

This is our top five Jonathan Bailey West End moments:

Number one

When he presented the award for Best Sound Design at the 2013 Olivier Awards. Little did he know at this point that just six years later he himself will be winning an Olivier Award.

Number two

When Jonathan Bailey won Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Musical for his performance in Company (Gielgud Theatre) at the 2019 Olivier Awards with Mastercard. I love his acceptance speech it’s so goofy and moving, he says that the musical allowed the cast to show a celebratory snapshot of gay love which is really touching.

When he performed in The Last Five Years with Samantha Barks (at the St James’ Theatre, now known as The Other Palace), who later this year will be going on to play Elsa in Frozen when it comes to the West End. Watch our interview with them:

Number four

We’re back at the 2019 Olivier Awards where Gok Wan and Angelica Bell are interviewing Jonathan Bailey on the red carpet. I have to say he’s looking incredibly suave next to his cast members including Patti Lupone, who’s talking about Company’s nine nominations that year. Gok Wan even gives Patti Lupone a little hug and a kiss, imagine if we could still do that?

Number five

Jonathan Bailey presenting Company’s live performance at the 2019 Olivier Awards and what a performance it was. Rosalie Craig who played the lead in Stephen Sondheim’s Company sings Being Alive to an enraptured audience.

Due to the current pandemic various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows. Please bear with us as we try to keep this page as up to date as possible. If you find a mistake, please let us know by emailing enquiries@soltukt.co.uk. If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

For more than 40 years, TKTS was our on-the-day theatre ticket box office in Leicester Square. Currently closed due to the current situation, we are now selling our great last minute seats and prices online. Click here to learn more.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
