What You'll Get
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 deal: for $15, you get a ticket to the Arizona Theatre Company's production of The Mystery of Irma Vep at the Temple of Music and Art in Armory Park (up to a $34 value). Today's Groupon is good for seating in Section 2 on any one of the following preview show dates:
- Saturday, April 9 at 8 p.m.
- Sunday, April 10 at 7 p.m.
- Tuesday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m.
- Thursday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m.
Back by popular demand, The Mystery of Irma Vep returns to ATC for the first time since its original crowd-pleasing production in 1999. Irma Vep follows two fleet-footed actors as they portray all the residents of Mandacrest estate in this fast-paced gothic horror spoof. Equity actors Bob Sorenson and Oliver Wadsworth don wigs and wolvish threads as they transform into a hilarious and hirsute host of lords, ladies, vampires, werewolves, and mummies. Dubbed "a delightful baptism in farce" by the Phoenix New Times, Irma Vep transports theater-goers from the moors of England to the tombs of Egypt, amid an evening of plentiful plot turns and lycanthropy-fighting laughter.
Serving both the Phoenix and Tucson theater communities, Arizona Theatre Company has masterminded upward of 200 stage productions in its more than 40-year history. Purchase up to two tickets to treat a friend to the magic of the theater, or use your second ticket to attend a subsequent performance, where you can astound those around you by accurately predicting every twist of the plot.
