Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely because of the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Vicariously live the freewheeling thespian life with today’s GropuonLive deal: for $23, you get two upper-balcony tickets to Four Seasons Theatre’s production of My Fair Lady at the Wisconsin Union Theater (a $47 value). Choose from the following performances:
- Friday, August 19, at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, August 20, at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, August 21, at 2 p.m.
Based on George Bernard Shaw's classic Pygmalion, My Fair Lady has charmed countless theatergoers since debuting on Broadway in 1956. Conceived by acclaimed composer Frederick Loewe and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner, the tale revolves around a stodgy professor who uses speech lessons and motivational office posters to turn an unrefined flower girl into an elegant debutante. Guests will chuckle as the bloom-loving lass sheds her Cockney accent to the tune of “The Rain in Spain” and swoon to the romantic melody of “I Could Have Danced All Night.”
Four Seasons Theatre, an award-winning troupe of local thespians, has staged nearly two dozen musicals since springing from an acorn in 2005. Attendees will bask in the historic confines of the Wisconsin Union Theater, which opened in 1939 with a Shakespearean performance by stage legends Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontanne, and a four-year-old Bozo the Clown.
