Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon: for $42, you get two Level 1 tickets to the touring production of The Aluminum Show presented by Broadway Grand Rapids on Sunday, February 20 at 7 p.m. at DeVos Performance Hall on Monroe Avenue Northwest (up to an $85 value). Level 1 seating includes Orchestra rows A-F, Mezzanine rows A-F, and the Dress Circle.
Arriving stateside after stunning audiences across the world for almost a decade, The Aluminum Show fuses fluid movement and industrial hardware into an eye-popping techno-futuristic tale of family ties. Ilan Azriel and Ella Munk-Azriel's witty, visionary piece personifies found and discarded items to create an interactive whirlwind that gives guests of all ages a baby-fresh perception of the life and purpose of inanimate objects. Sit back in one of DeVos Performance Hall's 2,404 audience-comfort receptacles and peek into the melodious hopes, dreams, and dilemmas of others without having to rely on expensive surveillance equipment or NSA phone records. For preferred seating, pick up tickets in advance of the show at the Broadway Grand Rapids ticket office. Dramaphiles can also chart a course for future Broadwaytainment by signing up for Broadway Grand Rapids's eClub.
