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 Groupon: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to The Vortex Theatre (up to a $30 value) for a performance of one of the following plays:
• Loot, running September 9–October 2, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
• Home, running October 14–November 6, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
• The House of the Spirits, November 18–December 18, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
The thespians at The Vortex Theatre enchant audiences with spirited performances varying from new interpretations of classic works to cutting edge local premieres. Upcoming theatrical works include Joe Orton's Loot, a comedy about two clueless bank robbers who stash their money in the coffin of their recently deceased mother after unsuccessfully attempting to hide it in a box of free kittens. Eccentric performers highlight David Storey's Home, the story of two men who discuss both trivial and weighty topics while strolling side-by-side on the grounds of a mysterious country estate. The House of the Spirits retells Isabel Allende's novel of the same name, using music to chronicle a Latin American family's journey through five decades of sociopolitical strife. Seating at The Vortex Theatre's 80-capacity venue is first-come, first-serve, so audiences should arrive early for the best available seating and a complimentary booing tutorial.
