Cheap The Commitments tickets at the Palace Theatre
The Commitments, Roddy Doyle’s best-selling novel, is now live on stage for the very first time in a brilliant new musical adapted by Booker Prize-winning Doyle himself. Critics and audiences have given two thumbs up to this electrifying show, which made its world premiere at the Palace Theatre in London’s West End.
More than two years in the making, The Commitments is directed by Jamie Lloyd, whose other recent successes include the sell-out Trafalgar Studios production of Macbeth starring James McAvoy, and Urinetown the Musical at the St James Theatre Victoria and the West End.
The Commitments are the finest soul band Dublin has ever produced. Their hilarious, poignant journey starts with two down-at-heel members of a rubbish synth combo playing in a shop window, to utterly disinterested passers-by. The hapless duo turns to local music expert Jimmy Rabbitte for help.
Jimmy places an ad in a local music paper and is soon auditioning the wannabes that will eventually become The Commitments. Expect big laughs as they get to know each other and their instruments and proceed through early rehearsals for their first gig. The band proves an explosive live proposition and keeps getting better at every gig. But at the moment real success approaches, their volatile relationships threaten to tear down everything they've worked for.
The Commitments contains some strong language. Parental guidance is advised.

Palace Theatre Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the Palace Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The Palace Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Leicester Square tube station. Built in 1891, this 1480 seat venue hosted Les Misérables for 19 years.
The first production at the Palace Theatre was Ivan Sullivan’s Ivanhoe, which opened in January 1891. Among the most notable of the countless shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are No, No Nanette, Anything Goes, Cabaret, The Sound of Music, Jesus Christ Superstar and Les Misérables.
Today, the Palace Theatre enjoys consistent success and is most renowned for staging world-class musicals, but like any long-serving institution it’s had its share of ups and downs over the years.
Originally called the Royal English Opera House, the theatre was commissioned with the intent of being the home of grand English opera. But after the first production the theatre was forced to close as there were no subsequent productions lined up to succeed it. The theatre reopened later in 1891, but with little success as an opera house it was subsequently sold and converted into a music hall, renamed the Palace Theatre of Varieties.
In 1897 the theatre began to screen films as part of its entertainment programme, and in August 1907 Oliver G Pike premiered his film In Birdland at the theatre. It was the first ever paid-for screening of a British Wildlife film.
The name of the venue was changed to The Palace Theatre in 1911. In 1925, the classic musical No, No Nanette premiered there and enjoyed a hugely successful run of 665 performances. It was the first in a long line of long-running musicals at the theatre.
Recent successes at the Palace include The Woman in White, Spamalot, Priscilla Queen of the Desert and Singin’ in the Rain.
Whatever you decide to see at the Palace Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
