The love triangle is an archetypal premise for a show, whereas the Love Rectangle is just the protagonist of a canceled cartoon that taught kids about the many sides of friendship. Enjoy grown-up entertainment with this Groupon.

The Deal

This merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online. In most cases, this Groupon is still the best deal available, but $31 tickets are regularly available on the day of the performance for guests age 30 and under.

Murder Ballad

Sex, violence, and song—those are the raw elements of Murder Ballad, a stripped-down and self-aware take on the rock-musical form. Scripted by Julia Jordan, the show's pulpy love triangle unfolds entirely in anthemic rock numbers scored by Juliana Nash of '90s alt-pop band Talking to Animals. In a night of lurid fun, the audience follows the spiraling bad decisions of Upper West Side housewife Sara as she rekindles an affair with bad-boy bartender Tom. Along with Sara's mild-mannered husband Michael, the only other presence onstage is a sultry narrator. Throughout the show, this mysterious siren sidles along the fourth wall, cluing the audience in on the action while remaining cagey about her place in the story and what possessed her parents to name her “Narrator.” As the characters saunter around a set consisting of a realistic bar, a pool table, and the audience's personal space, they tell their fiery tale in lyrics that the New York Times praised as “taut, tart and as pungent as stale cigarette smoke.”
