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. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $50, you get a one-year Friend membership and a member hospitality card, which includes coupons to local restaurants, at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts in Tacoma (a $103 value).
The Broadway Center aims to provide outstanding theatrical venues in which to entertain artistic attendees of all ages. Your Friend membership grants you a year of performance perks, as the best seats for season shows at the Pantages Theater, the Rialto Theater, and the Theatre on the Square are held for members. You'll also have the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public and get wait-list priority for sold-out events. Use your status as a newly christened member to snag primo tickets to upcoming shows such as Twist and Shout: The Ultimate Beatles Experience on March 31, or the Tony Award–winning musical Fiddler on the Roof on April 26.
Recognizing that art nourishes the soul, but can be difficult to digest, the membership hospitality card gets you five coupons to local eateries—Doyle's Public House, Woody's on the Water, Harmon Brewery, The Hub, and Paddy Coyne's Irish Pub. Two beverage coupons for Broadway Center Concessions are also included, encouraging patrons to whet whistles for whistling their approval of performances.
The Broadway Center for the Performing Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the arts in the Pacific Northwest. The Center also provides one of the largest performing-arts-education programs in the state, ensuring more concrete preservation of creative culture for future generations than singing melodies into empty jam jars.
- The Broadway Center for the Performing Arts has made downtown Tacoma a great place to go catch a show. The Pantages Theater and The Rialto Theater have both been restored to their original splendor and Theater on the Square is a marvel of modern architecture. Clearly these guys have no agenda beyond bringing culture to the area and preserving history of Tacoma. – Michelle B., Yelp
