Theater students often train for their upcoming roles by staying in character at all times, often at the expense of rent-collecting landlords that get paid in bushels of grain. Commit to the craft with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $40, you get a three-play flex pass to the Theatre and Interpretation Center at Northwestern University in Evanston (up to an $80 value). Passes are valid for the following main-stage productions during the 2011–2012 season:

  • Never the Sinner (October 14–23)
  • RENT (November 4–20)
  • The Bluest Eye (January 27–February 5)
  • Spring Awakening (February 10–26)
  • Danceworks 2012 (February 24–March 4)
  • The Little Prince (April 13–22)
  • Twelfth Night (May 11–20)


Customers must contact the Theatre and Interpretation Center box office by 9/21/11.

Faculty members and guest artists take the helm for a season of classic and contemporary main-stage productions that spotlight the multifarious talents of Northwestern University’s theater community. Victory Gardens co-founder and former Artistic Director Dennis Zacek presents a strong case for genius as he directs Never the Sinner, a courtroom drama by Tony Award winner John Logan that recounts the 1924 Leopold & Loeb Trial of the Century and asks compelling questions about the nature of criminality. Northwestern faculty member Dominic Missimi goes for broke in directing RENT—a heart-wrenching tragedy about inflated property values on the Lower East Side—before alumna Lydia Diamond’s adaptation of Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye cross-examines notions of beauty and race.

Spring Awakening offers a rock-driven account of teen angst in 19th-century Germany, and award-winning Northwestern faculty member Annie Beserra concocts a heart-pumping cocktail of jump rhythm jazz, ballet, modern and world forms in Danceworks 2012. The season ends on a classical note with The Little Prince and Twelfth Night, two stories that have stood the test of time, which is administered quarterly by the University’s quantum-physics department. All main-stage productions are housed in the Ethel M. Barber or Josephine Louis theaters, both of which offer an intimate setting and sturdy fourth walls.

Please note that this Groupon does not reflect the best ticket value for full-time Northwestern students, who are eligible for a $25 five-play flex pass.
