Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent 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 $10, you get one ticket to any main-stage show through August 29, 2011 at City Lights Theater Company (up to a $28 value).
City Lights is an innovative, intimate (100 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. Coming up in the current season is a production of Billy Aronson's First Day of School, a farcical look at the behavior of suburbanites in autumn (September 23–October 24); an irreverent, interactive, and totally historically accurate play titled Abraham Lincoln's Big, Gay Dance Party (November 24–December 19); and the horseplay of the drama Equus (March 17–April 17), the winner of the 1975 Tony for Best Play and a favorite of horse whisperers and hoarse whisperers everywhere.
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.
