Even better, your tickets get you a free glass of prosecco at Manahatta and 50% off your food bill – they’re weekend performances, so the usual offer wouldn’t apply.

As always, they have limited availability and the deal isn’t available from 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays. You also have to book online to get the deal.
