The history of theater goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's GrouponLive deal to the 2011–2012 season of the American Repertory Theater of Western New York in Buffalo. Check out the theater company's website for show dates and times. Choose between the following options:
• For $15, you get two general-admission tickets to one show of your choice from the 2011–2012 season (up to a $40 value).
• For $69, you get two season passes, good for all 2011–2012 shows, concessions discounts, admission to special events, and reserved seats (up to a $120 value).
Touting itself as a "21st-century theater", the American Repertory Theater of WNY summons intellectual innovation while kindling community dialogue with full seasons of time-tested classics and contemporary works. The 2011–2012 season teems with generous doses of dramaturgy, kicking off with the ART of WNY’s very first musical production, the spelunking tale of explorer Floyd Collins (September 16–October 1). The premiere of Fred’s Requiem weaves engaging vignettes into a gripping tapestry about death, deceit, and grape-farming (November 11–December 3), and The Gin Game explores burgeoning secrets and lies among card playing geriatrics (January 20–February 11). Killer Joe follows the harrowing adventures of a contract killer in a Texas trailer park (April 13–May 5). Closing the season, ART presents its annual "Local Playwrights One-Act Showcase", bolstering the works of exciting new talents and potentially discovering the next Neil Simon or method for portioning a loaf of bread.
All performances are held at the theater company's Buffalo East space. Season-pass seating is reserved upon reservation, and regular-ticket seating is general admission, ensuring tardy patrons won't derail key scenes when loudly apologizing for crowd surfing over seated audience members.
Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
