Nutcracker, January 2023

I was browsing and saw the availability of only 2 tickets, seating together. Click to buy, for my daughter and me. I was surprised how easy and quick the process was and then receiving the tickets. THANK YOU. We loved the show.


Jersey Boys, December 2022

It was simple to find and choose our tickets. All the available seats were clearly color coded with a key detailing the price. The show was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed it.


 Back to the Future, November 2022

Show was fantastic. Staging so impressive and the music terrific. Found the booking process quite straight forward. Would definitely recommend to a friend.


The Mousetrap, October 2022

Easy to book, and got a great seat in dress circle. Bit confused by e-tickets. Received a barcode immediately on booking, which I had assumed was the actual ticket. However, I received the actual ticket on my phone on the day, so all good in the end. The cast and production team deserve all the hype they get for the world's longest-running show.


Moulin Rouge! The Musical, December 2022

Was upbeat funny and music was great! Cast of characters where amazing. Did a great job keeping the play moving and grooving. Loved costumes and setting of the stage. Would recommend this play Very Highly.


Life of Pi, June 2022

It was very simple and easy to use, very helpful that it goes to your Whatsapp and you can download the ticket then and there. Also, the rate was very good for my seat compared with other platforms. Thanks for a great experience!


TINA: The Tina Turner Musical, January 2023

The performer who portrait Tina Turner was amazing. The resemblance was striking, both vocally and in her movements. Tina's story as well as the history part of it we're great. Also the rest of the cast did an awesome job in giving it there all. Really worth seeing this phenomenal show and spectacle.


 Mamma Mia!, December 2022

Arrived in London. Turns out we had a free night, searched the web for what plays where currently performing in town and were amazed at the selection. My daughter and I chose Mamma Mia. The ticketing process was smooth. Description of seating floor plan was accurate. I'll definitely utilize you guys again. Great night!

The musical was just amazing ! Wahouuuu so wonderful music, singer performance and show ! And headout is very easy and convenient to use ! Information are clear for prices and places


Jersey Boys, December 2022

Good seat selection and price range and a brilliant performance! Really enjoyed the show and thanks to great ticketing option. Will definitely use this booking method again.


Les Miserables, October 2022

I had an unforeseen scheduling conflict that prevented me from seeing my show on its scheduled night. Headout helped me not only switch to the following night, but they helped me maintain my same quality seats.


Frozen The Musical, November 2022

Using Headout was super easy. We had no issues with receiving the tickets via email, opening the attachment and having them scanned at the show for entrance. I would definitely use headout again and highly recommend it for purchasing theater tickets.
