What are Previews?
Generally, previews are performances that allow the director and production team to make changes or for the cast to become settled in their part before the show is attended by theatre critics.

The general public can buy tickets for previews, and in some cases the price is reduced. Generally, you won't find much difference between a show in previews and when it is technically 'opened', although new musicals may have many changes!
