It's easy to relate to family sitcoms, since most families do have quirky parents, at least one wacky neighbor, and a handful of people who are weirdly insistent about getting everything on camera. See the real fake world with this GrouponLive deal to see The Cast of Modern Family Live at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. For $48, you get one ticket for seating in rows T–BB on Wednesday, April 25, at 8 p.m. (a $100 value).
April 25 treats fans of the smash hit ABC comedy Modern Family to a mirthful night of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, as actors Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet, and Jesse Tyler Ferguson dish out juicy insider stories and answer burning questions from devotees. A bitingly witty mockumentary that follows the foibles of three harried households, Modern Family has collected a mantel-busting bundle of Emmys for Best Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing, Directing, and Acting. Best known for their roles as Phil and Claire Dunphy, Burrell and Emmy winner Bowen summon life-size laugh and commentary tracks as they expose the secrets of a healthy fictional marriage. Ferguson and Emmy winner Stonestreet, who together play new adoptive parents Mitchell Pritchett and Cam Tucker, discuss their barrier-breaking roles. For this one-time Florida appearance, expect to see rare clips of on-set shenanigans and blooper reels where Sofia Vergara repeatedly hospitalizes the rest of the cast.
Ruth Eckerd Hall's stark white, geometric performance center seats up to 2,180 guests and plies their ears with pitch-perfect audio. The continental-style seating arrangement is sloped and staggered for the comfort of each viewer, and the hall is free of all columns and Dr. Seuss-hat-wearing jerks for unobstructed sight lines.
