What You'll Get
Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from "busting a gut" to "splitting your sides" to "tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain." Break a funny bone with this GrouponLive deal to The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey in Morristown. Choose between the following options:
- For $33, you get two general-admission tickets to see The Comedy of Errors at The Shakespeare Theatre's outdoor stage in Convent Station (up to a $66 value). Tickets are good for any performance from Wednesday, June 20, to Sunday, July 1, as well as the 4:30 p.m. shows on Sunday, July 8, 15, 22, and 29.
- For $48, you get four general-admission tickets to see The Comedy of Errors (up to a $132 value), valid for the same performance dates listed above.
One of Shakespeare's earliest and most farcical plays, The Comedy of Errors follows two sets of estranged twins through a day of madcap misunderstandings in the city of Ephesus. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant Dromio enter the city searching for their long-lost, identically named twins, separated from them by a shipwreck. Things unravel when the Ephesian Antipholus's wife and creditors mistake the twins for their identical counterparts. Ever-deepening misunderstandings culminate in a chase, the near execution of the far-flung clan’s patriarch, and a tearful reconciliation.
Modeled on Athens' Theatre of Dionysus, the outdoor stage’s grass-and-stone seating cradles up to 400 show-goers in the open air. Guests can tote along picnics, blankets, and low beach chairs, lending shows a festive atmosphere without forcing audiences to wear clown noses.
