Network – Wednesday, February 20th @7pm

Let’s go see Bryan Cranston have a nervous breakdown on stage in Network.  Apparently, this type of voyeurism is expensive. Tickets are $185 a pop, but we will be in orchestra 1 so up close and personal to experience the meltdown together. Click the button below to be part of this show. I use this language deliberately as the show is said to be an immersive experience. My favorite kind!

Our box office is now closed. If you would like to join us, buy a ticket from the theater! If you do, let me know and I will include you in any pre/post-show plans. Or you can place your name on the wait list.  I will turn to you if tickets become available (and they always do).

SuperHero – Sunday, February 24th @3pm

This world premiere of the off-Broadway show is off the radar, so we will be among the first to see this soon to be hot, hot show. Just the first sentence in the description won me over: Before we can save the world, we have to save each other. So true and a terrific reminder for all of us! Age grading is a tricky thing, but 12 and up might be a good barometer for your family. Depends on your kid though! Your call. We are hoping to score a talkback with the supremely talented guy in charge of the music and the lyrics.

Adult Tickets: $75.00 – Student Tickets: $35

The Lehman Trilogy – Wednesday, April 3rd @7pm

On the sidelines at a swim meet my friend Laura said that a friend told her to crawl across broken glass to get a ticket to the show The Lehman Trilogy at The Armory. I found this to be a seriously persuasive sentence. My friend Diane had told me about this show in September, but Laura pushed me over into the MUST GET TICKETS category so I bought as many as I could. We will all be sitting together in the second-best category of seating. For those not familiar with the show it is the history of The Lehman brothers.  The show opens in the calamitous year of 2008 and toggles between that and the past giving audience members a history lesson on the rise and subsequent fall of the Lehman organization.

Our tickets are sold out, but the theater still has tickets at multiple price point options. Click here to buy a ticket from the theater! If you do, let me know and I will include you in any pre/post show plans! Or you can place your name on the wait list.  I will turn to you if tickets become available.

Be More Chill – Sunday, April 7th @3pm

IMG_8095As you may (or may not) have read here, a group and I got to see this recently Off Broadway. The show was wildly well received by the teens in the group and MOST (but not all) of the adults. It is a production that was brought back to life by it’s social media power wielding fans and it might just be the hottest ticket on Broadway this spring. The theater is being a little aggressive with their orchestra pricing and not offering discounts, hence the pricey cost of those seats.

King Lear – Thursday, May 23rd @7pm

The play King Lear by William Shakespeare is considered one of his most triumphant works. The role of the king is one of the most coveted roles and has been played by Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins, and Ian McKellen to name a few male heavy hitters. The central challenge in casting this role, I have learned, is that it is difficult to find someone who is old enough to believably portray the character and still be able to muster up enough energy to properly play this demanding role. Enter female phenom Glenda Jackson who at age 82 is ready to reprise the role she played wickedly well in London 2 years ago at the tender age of 80.

Ms. Jackson won a Tony last year for her withering performance in Three Tall Women. Her super expressive face and sharp tongue were on full display and I have no doubt that both will be put to pitch perfect use as she connives, manipulates, and ultimately spirals out of control as King Lear.  We have been privy to some pretty remarkable acting so far in 2019 (and it is only February) – Glenda Jackson – in this role – needs to be seen. Join me!

Tickets are: $120

THE FINE PRINT:

This group was created to ensure that we as a group are more regularly taking advantage of the myriad of live theater offerings available in this magical town many of us call home. We are proud and thrilled that we’ve made it as easy possible for all of us to experience live theater together on a more regular basis.   

Process: Once you click the form and enter your information, you have made a commitment to see your chosen show. Linda will circle back requesting payment at a later date. The preferred method of payment is quickly and via venmo or zelle, but checks are fine too (for now). We prefer to not have to send reminders, but will happily send along one or two because we realize these types of emails can get lost in your inbox and the timing of their arrival is very much a matter of the luck of the draw.  

We have built in a service fee that is included in the price of each ticket as organizing these events is not an insignificant allocation of time and resources. Though we do love most every minute of our time spent masterminding evenings at the theater.  🙂

We are thrilled to have you be a part of this group. Thank you.
