Live theater tends to be more thrilling than film, largely due to the heightened odds of seeing someone flub a line or deliver a stirring monologue while sitting in your lap. Vicariously live the free-wheeling thespian life with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get one ticket to Elsewhere, running August 12–27 at Theatre Conspiracy (an $18 value).
The nonprofit production company Theatre Conspiracy has promoted the local arts community for 14 years and works to advance the careers of up-and-coming playwrights by staging new productions. Don theater binoculars or an orchestral pit periscope for Adam Szymkowicz's Elsewhere, the story of a dinner invitation that, like a felony conviction, leads to a permanent residence and a whole lot more. The play runs Thursdays–Saturdays at 8 p.m. in addition to one Sunday matinee on August 21 at 2 p.m., with tickets distributed on a first come, first served basis.
Theatre Conspiracy offers "pay what you will" for tickets for the opening-night performance and tickets to Thursday shows are buy one get one half off.
