What You'll Get
Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an under-seat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's Groupon for one balcony ticket at the Huntington Theatre Company–hosted production of William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors or Richard III at the Boston University Theatre. Although the Huntington Theatre Company offers $25 seats to patrons 35 and under through its 35 Below program, today's Groupon still offers you the cheapest way to see these shows.

One of Boston's largest and most respected theater companies, Huntington Theatre Company brings over the all-male Shakespearean theater company Propeller from England to perform two of Shakespeare’s classics. The Comedy of Errors induces cheek-cramping laughter and hand-on-knee violence with the tale of two sets of identical twins—separated at birth—reuniting after 25 years. The two-hour-and-15-minute display of mistaken identities, slapstick comedy, and a festive mariachi band includes one intermission.
Audience members can respond with subdued gasps or maniacal cackles as they watch one of Shakespeare's most villainous kings carry out a murderous scheme to the throne of England in Richard III. The two-hour-and-45-minute tragedy is set in a gothic Victorian hospital and features evocative, bloody imagery.
