Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Drama is life with the dull bits cut out," which explains his penchant for casting crust-less sandwiches in every leading role. Chew on exciting art with today's GrouponLive deal: for $59, you get a general-admission four-ticket season pass to Profiles Theatre (a $120 value). This Groupon can be redeemed for one admission to each of the four shows in the 2011–2012 season, or for four admissons in any combination.
The artists at Profiles Theatre enthrall audiences through interpretations of established works and independent premieres such as the Jeff-award-winning production of Tracy Letts's Killer Joe. Following in the company's two-decade tradition of staging thought-provoking theater in an intimate setting, the 2011–2012 season kicks off with the midwest premiere of Martin McDonagh's A Behanding in Spokane. Directed by Steppenwolf ensemble member Rick Snyder, the dark comedy documents a man's search for his missing left hand. Leslye Headland's Bachelorette, the story of three unhappy friends barging in on a former classmate's bachelorette party, contrasts the spiritual The Break of Noon, Niel LaBute's retelling of a memorable lunch break. Finally, Deirdre O'Connor's Assisted Living premieres, enchanting audiences with a tale of a young optimist who helps a middle-aged woman rediscover happiness.
