With some people camped out overnight and some 270 people lined up outside, 6,000 tickets for Hamlet starring David Tennant at the Novello Theatre in London sold out in under three hours, BBC Newsreports.
"We're very pleased that the play is accruing so much interest," an RSC spokeswoman said.
Tennant has been playing the title role with the RSC at Stratford-upon-Avon. It transfers to London in December for a short run.
Some tickets for the Novello performances will be available at the box office on each performance day for that day only.
"The great news for us is that it's encouraging that younger contingent of theatre-goers, which is one of our real aims. David has been wonderful in encouraging those people to come," the spokeswoman said.
