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 $20, you get one general-admission ticket to I Hate Hamlet at the Bickford Theatre at the Morris Museum in Morristown (up to a $40 value).

Nestled in the Morris Museum, the Bickford Theatre's cast of canny actors transmits theatrics directly to each of the auditorium's 312 house seats. Their latest production, the Tony-nominated I Hate Hamlet, charts the comedic trials of protagonist Andrew Rally, a successful actor offered the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. The leading character is haunted by his eponymous hatred for the show, and he inadvertently summons the ghost of John Barrymore, history's greatest Hamlet. The play's multifaceted plot incorporates madcap antics to generate bellowing laughter—maintaining a replay value comparable to a YouTube video of a koala sneezing and falling into a vat of flour. The Bickford Theatre produces four plays every season and hosts jazz concerts, children's theater, and performing-arts classes.
Note that student ticket pricing (18 or under with valid college ID) is normally $20.
