Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds while eating with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get two dinner and performance tickets to Bye, Bye Birdie at Candlelight Dinner Playhouse (up to a $115 value). Tickets are first come, first served, and prices vary based on seating, so the earlier you book, the better the value.
Running January 21 to March 20, 2011, the Tony Award–winning musical Bye Bye Birdie tells the comedic tale of a girl who wins a contest to give recently drafted '50s rock star Conway Birdie one last kiss. The new 22,000-square-foot Candlelight Theater is one of the largest dinner theaters in Colorado, boasting a 280-seat playhouse complete with new lighting and sound equipment, and an elegant lobby graced with an opulent chandelier, cascading staircase, and fountain streaming melted pennies. Fill a stomach-purse with the preperformance candlelight dinner, with a choice of starter and entree from the performance menu. Appetizers, desserts, and drinks are available at an additional cost.
