You can refer to yourself as a “culture vulture” as often as you like, but it might actually stick if word got out that you went to some cutting-edge theater and stopped just circling around thirsty animals. With today’s Groupon, you get a $9 ticket to any regular, main-stage show through August 29, 2010 at City Lights Theater Company, a $28 value.

City Lights is an innovative, intimate (108 seats), nonprofit theater company that produces six Main Stage plays per year. Each play runs for a five-week period with four shows per week. Included in the current season is a production of Rent, the moving story of a group of bohemian friends in New York's Greenwich Village. If you’ve already seen Rent or refuse to see plays with the word “rent” in the title, get into the holiday spirit by using your Groupon to see Another Night Before Christmas, in which a charitable social worker’s home is broken into by a homeless man claiming to be Santa Claus.

Show up early, because seats at City Lights are first come, first served. Bring friends or a parole officer and enjoy some quality theater from up-and-coming actors and directors. Get your Groupon for the perfect holiday excursion or to culture the part of your brain that stores culture.


City Lights productions have been reviewed by the Mercury News and Metroactive. Yelpers give it a 4.5-star rating:

  • This is a GREAT little theater. The staff is friendly, the venue is small so you get to be really close to the actors which is just so exciting. – Sarah S.
  • City Lights Theater is the epitome of local theater and has brought back all the old fond memories! – Jeremy G.
  • Very cute local theatre, worth a visit if you like supporting the arts and theatrical performances. – Anna L.

Great Moments in Thanksgiving History

To celebrate this day of giving thanks, let’s take a moment to remember these great moments in Thanksgiving history:

1621, Plymouth Plantation: Unlike today’s traditional Thanksgiving turkey, the menu at the first Thanksgiving consisted of local affordables (mashed bees, pickled apples, and “water.”)
1891, Washington, DC: After the traditional pardoning of a Thanksgiving turkey, President Benjamin Harrison makes the turkey his Secretary of Commerce.
1998, Omaha, Nebraska: Thanksgiving is ruined for one Richie Harrington when his father’s slip of the tongue reveals that his current family is not dad’s first, or favorite.
2019: A brief respite from the howling winds and constant lightning allows the residents of a place once called America to reflect.
