Hi Barbara,

unfortunately I won't be in Vienna on Friday otherwise I'll have joined you.
The most popular theatres in Vienna are Burgtheater, Akademietheater, Volkstheater, Staatsoper and Volksoper. They have one thing in common: they offer standing tickets. So if you do not want to spend too much, you can take such a ticket which costs 2-5 euros depending on the theatre (Staatsoper is most expensive I think). If the performance is not sold out and there are free places left, people from the standing area often take a seat afterwards (migh only be a problem in Staatsoper where the standing area is separated as far as I remember).
Well, I hoped that helped.
You can check the plays they have and even buy the tickets online. Just google the names and you'll find more information.
Have fun!
Briggy
