Comedy has long been used to subvert the established order, shedding light on modern life's pervasive absurdities and fomenting distrust of potentially seltzer-filled boutonnieres. Embrace the ridiculous with today's GrouponLive deal: for $14, you get one ticket to see the Connecticut Repertory Theatre's production of I'm Connecticut at the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the University of Connecticut campus in Storrs, valid for any performance December 1–10 (up to a $28 value). Doors open one hour before showtime, and seating can be reserved by calling the box office in advance. This performance contains adult situations and strong language not suitable for children under the age of four.
Penned by Mike Reiss, a four-time Emmy-winning writer for the Peabody Award-winning The Simpsons, I'm Connecticut takes gentle jabs at the quirks of Reiss’s home state with a witty script and star-studded cast. Starring Jerry Adler of The Sopranos and Joyce DeWitt of Three's Company as colorful supporting characters, I'm Connecticut weaves the tale of a young man from Simsbury searching for love in New York City. The 75-minute satire sets its sights on all things Connecticut, from the origins of its nicknames to its embarrassing high-school yearbook photo. With fewer than 500 seats, the intimate Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre lets cast members personally pluck laughs from and share a special wink with each member of the audience
