Many theatergoers claim that life imitates art, which can be frustrating when they pause arguments for intermissions or direct drivers to turn "stage left" at stop signs. Learn to navigate the theatrical world with today's GrouponLive deal: for $17, you get one ticket to your choice of 2011–12 productions at Southern Rep ($35 value, depending on show date and including fees).
Southern Rep marks its 25th anniversary with a lineup of modern Tony Award–winning plays and seminal classics, flooding its intimate stage with a talented cast of local and national thespians. The season erupts in relentless wit as the 2009 Tony–winning comedy God of Carnage (September 14—October 9) portrays a group of uptight parents emotionally descending into sulky adolescence. Red (November 2—20), winner of a 2010 Tony Award, tells a raw tale about artists, with riveting insights about the dark side of ambition and the dangers of drinking watercolors. Polishing off the season, Pulitzer Prize winner A Streetcar Named Desire (March 21—April 8) returns to its hometown, giving audiences the vapors with Tennessee Williams’s classic tale of combustible lust among emotional animals in undershirts.
The small, 145-seat performance space ensures an intimate experience between actor and audience. Additionally, Groupon users can present their Groupon at the box office and upgrade to a season pass for an additional $55 (regularly up to an $85 value), ideal for diehard theater fans or Frank Rich impersonators.
