Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well.

Broadway Across America’s three-hour, Tony Award–winning production of the original 1949 Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific is set to storm the Aronoff Center for the Arts’ Procter & Gamble Hall this month. This Groupon gets showgoers one ticket for orchestra-level (rows P–Z) or loge-level (rows D–J) seating. The theater’s brass trimmings and cherry woodwork, hues of ochre, teal, and terra-cotta, and a ceiling alight with 3,000 fiber-optic lenses that hang like twinkling bats in a night sky, all set the stage for a properly theatrical evening. An all-star cast—bolstered by a fully sonorous and fully stocked touring orchestra—acts out a romantic story that juxtaposes the ominous shadow of the Second World War against the lush setting of a tropical island. With popular songs such as “Some Enchanted Evening,” “This Nearly Was Mine,” and “There Is Nothin’ Like a Dame,” South Pacific ’s gripping tale will keep you gripping your seat like an open-faced peanut-butter sandwich grips the canines of an antagonistic Doberman.
If redeeming tickets by email, must allow enough time for mail delivery. Seating is first-come, first-served; groups who want to sit together must make their collective purchase under one account.
