A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $20, you get two tickets (up to a $40 value) to see The Foreigner at Tallahassee Little Theatre.

For more than 61 years, the non-profit Tallahassee Little Theatre has produced and staged community-driven stage performances in the heart of downtown Tallahassee. The Foreigner, written by Larry Shue, revolves around two Englishmen: pathologically shy Charlie Baker and gruff staff sergeant Froggy LeSuer. When Froggy is sent to southern Georgia on a military mission, he decides to bring along his extremely timid friend, Charlie, along for the ride, setting the stage for hilariously harrowing experiences involving spilled secrets, good-hearted townsfolk, and accent-driven phonetics battles.
Tallahassee Little Theatre literally rolls out the red carpet for each play, giving live play appreciators a chance to don their finest eveningwear or shiniest plate mail and show their stuff. An hour before each show and during each intermission, Tallahassee Little Theatre's martini bar dispenses delicious libations, such as wines and cocktails, to the parched palettes of the audience. Call the box office to make reservations—seating is on a first come, first served basis.
While the Tallahassee Little Theatre has yet to receive many online reviews, more than 450 Facebookers are fans.
