The history of theater goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's Groupon: for $25, you get one general-admission ticket to see The Sparrow at the Adrienne Arsht Center (a $50 value). The performances will take place at the Carnival Studio Theater in the center’s Ziff Ballet Opera House. Choose from the following show times:
- Thursday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m.
- Friday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, April 30 at 5 p.m.
- Saturday, April 30 at 8:30 p.m.
- Sunday, May 1 at 4 p.m.
The Adrienne Arsht Center provides a grandiose setting for The Sparrow, created by the award-winning team at The House Theatre of Chicago. A colorful, sci-fi-tinged mélange of acting, dance, and music, The Sparrow centers around Emily Good, a small-town girl returning home a decade after the accidental death of her entire high-school class. As Emily struggles to conceal her unique gifts, the town tries to come to terms with its loss and accept the easily ostracized girl.
Though the Adrienne Arsht Center offers a special Student Rush ticket price for this event, this Groupon still represents the best deal available for most customers.
