Many theatergoers claim that life imitates art, which can be frustrating when they pause arguments for intermissions or direct drivers to turn "stage left" at stop signs. Learn to navigate the theatrical world with today's GrouponLive deal: for $38, you get two general-admission tickets to Barksdale Theatre's production of Becky's New Car at the Hanover Tavern (up to a $76 value). Today's deal is valid for performances taking place September 23–October 2. Tickets must be reserved by September 21.
Barksdale Theatre has staged professional productions of groundbreaking plays—including world premieres and Broadway musicals—for nearly 60 years. Lauded by critics, Steven Dietz’s play Becky's New Car uses witty dialogue to plunge viewers into a woman's midlife crisis. When a millionaire mistakes Becky for a widow during a moment of flirtation, she doesn't correct him, sparking an accidental extramarital affair that grants her access to an opulent, unfamiliar world. Throughout the play, Becky engages the audience by soliciting opinions or enlisting their help.
As one of the country's first dinner theaters, Barksdale Theatre has partnered with the Hanover Tavern since its inception. In addition to watching the play, guests can devour a preshow meal (not included in today's deal) of classic Southern fare such as fried green tomatoes, pan-seared crab cakes, and pecan-pie busts of Robert E. Lee.
