For $20, today's deal gets you one ticket to see the Atlantic Theater Company's production of The New York Idea (up to a $70.50 value including fees) at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in Greenwich Village. You can use your Groupon to see any performance during the show's run as long as tickets are available (the last performance is February 26). Check out the theater's calendar for show dates and times.

The New York Idea is the latest from David Auburn, the Pulitzer Prize– and Tony Award–winning author of Proof. Loosely based on a 1906 play of the same name, this laugh-out-loud, acerbic comedy of mores tells a timeless tale of sex and divorce in high society, with biting wit and sharp-tongued insight that resonate even more in modern times. The play tells the tale of a burgeoning romance between a horse-loving divorcee and a prominent judge, both soon to be farcically foiled by their ostentatious and unkempt ex-spouses.

The Atlantic Theater Company is an Off-Broadway band of brothers and sisters known for producing award-winning plays with stellar ensembles and refreshingly few Grinch attacks. This is your chance to see The New York Idea at its best before your local dinner theater adds it to its repertoire and fills it with inappropriate songs. The Lucille Lortel Theatre only holds 198 spectators and an equivalent number of specters, so you'll also be able to see the play from the best possible seats. Shows will sell out quickly, so redeem your Groupon early.

Though the Lucille Lortel Theatre offers back-row seats for $15, this Groupon still represents the best deal for most buyers.

Reviews

Atlantic Theater Company's production of The New York Idea has been positively reviewed by the New York Times, Time Out New York, and TheaterMania:

  • definitely slimmer, faster and lighter on its feet than the original. Instead of talking in paragraphs, the characters now lob one-liners at one another. – Ben Brantley, New York Times
  • Mark Brokaw infuses the arch, featherweight farce with all due lightness and humor, and his affable cast looks smashing in Michael Krass’s modish, nattily tailored costumes. – David Cote, Time Out New York
