With the exception of disputed pro football coin tosses and extreme debate clubs, the stage remains the only venue where arguments are regularly settled with a sword fight. Behold a dramatic settling of differences with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $33, you get a midday theater outing for one (a $66 total value), which includes:

WSC Avant Bard, formerly the Washington Shakespeare Company, defends the American theater vanguard with avant-garde, evocative productions of time-tested and contemporary classics. An adaptation of Shakespeare’s histories, King Henry IV, Parts One and Two, The Mistorical Hystery of Henry (I)V weaves together the political machinations of the newly crowned Henry IV and the raucous, debauched life of his son, the future Henry V. Featuring Sir John Falstaff—one of Shakespeare’s most popular comedic characters—the play confidently mixes comedy and drama like Thanksgiving dinner for a family of circus clowns. All performances take place at Arlington’s vibrant Artisphere, and general-admission seating ensures tardy show-goers won’t disrupt performers by leaping over patrons in cacophonous rocket boots.

The theater outing includes brunch at Hotel Palomar’s dining-room restaurant, Domaso, which helps satiate diners with sweet and savory menu items as well as nonalcoholic beverages. Strike a dramatic pose indicating hunger before breakfast edibles such as a toasted smoked-salmon bagel slathered in cream cheese, tomato, and capers ($13) or lunch-specific plates including Rappahannock oysters dressed in passion fruit and tiny, rotund trench coats ($2.70).

WSC Avant Bard

Established as the Washington Shakespeare Company in 1990, WSC Avant Bard is dedicated to updating classic theater for modern audiences, revitalizing well-worn drama with challenging interpretations. Under the leadership of newly appointed artistic director Tom Prewitt, the theater treats audiences to daring productions of established classics, new works, and little-known Shakespeare fan-fiction about him teaming up to fight crime with Queen Elizabeth I.

Customer Reviews

It's a beautiful theater and everything I've seen there has been wonderful.
Caryn M. · August 15, 2012
I was surprised at the quality of the acting.
Jacqueline K. · March 21, 2012
Great performances in a small venue. The staging and cosumes are well done and these are plays that you don't get to see done live very often. Artisphere is a great match for this company and the Artisphere people are friendly and will bend over backwards to be of help.
