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 freewheeling thespian life with today’s GrouponLive deal to the Tucson Fringe Festival, held at Beowulf Alley Theatre and Solar Culture from February 24–26. The schedule lists performance times and venues. Choose between the following options:

In its second season, the Tucson Fringe Festival perpetuates its mission to “make the world more welcoming to artists,” as its cofounders proudly proclaimed last year to Tucson Weekly. This year’s five plays take the stage 15 times at two intimate venues for stories that skewer society, glimpse into the future, and blend drama with live music. Lethal Fairy Tales delves into American pathology in a journey soundtracked with original music by local musicians Fish Karma and the Love Generation. Playwright Joan O’Dwyer’s Unreality Shows: Three Short Plays takes audiences through a triptych of bizarre situations, from a cancer support group to a dystopian matriarchy. Performers from diverse corners of the theater landscape also take on corporate culture in The Starter House, shamanic self-knowing in Numb, and the corruption inherent in big vaudeville in the musical celebration The Barely Free Baja Spectacular!.
Though the Tucson Fringe Festival sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
