What You'll Get
A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this GrouponLive deal to see Stand By Your Man: The Tammy Wynette Story at Newberry Opera House. For $22, you get one ticket for seating in orchestra-left rows E, F, H, K, L, N, or O; orchestra-center rows J–Q; orchestra-right rows E–H, J–L, or O–Q; or balcony rows A–D on Wednesday, April 18, at 8 p.m. (up to a $44 value, including all fees).
Telling the tale of the First Lady of Country through 26 of the songs that defined her, Stand By Your Man records the dizzying heights and heartbreaking lows of Tammy Wynette's life. Facing international superstardom, drug addiction, and a procession of five often-unsupportive husbands with varying degrees of triumph and tragedy, the singer often worked out real-life dramas in songs such as “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” "'Til I Can Make It On My Own,” and “Golden Ring.” Tammy's life story intersects with many familiar faces from film and radio, including former husband George Jones and ex-boyfriend Burt Reynolds.
Evincing a history that dates back to 1881 and includes stints as a city jail and a silent-film palace, the 426-seat Newberry Opera House is a spectacle in itself. A recent multimillion-dollar renovation project modernized the institution's eclectic Victorian craftwork by adding state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and removing the horse-drawn curtain-raising system.
