Legendary entertainers Kenan and Kel made theatrical history when they broke down the fourth wall, and then, to the consternation of the set designer, broke down the second and third walls as well. Experience the magic of the stage with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a pass to see four different productions by InterAct Theatre Company (a value of up to $121). Performances take place at the AdrienneLive, located in the Rittenhouse district.
InterAct Theatre Company performs thought-provoking new works as it strives to explore political and social issues and foster social change through dynamic performance. The 2010–2011 season features the Philadelphia premieres of Lidless, in which a former interrogator at Guantánamo Bay is forced to confront her violent past, and the irreverent odd-couple comedy Two Jews Walk Into a War…. The world premiere of Etched in Skin on a Sunlit Night examines race through the lens of art, just as most art is examined through the lens of a solid-gold monacle. Today’s deal also includes admission for one person and their imaginary entourage to the special limited engagement of the one-woman autobiographical show Love Lessons from Abu Ghraib, a Philadelphia Fringe Festival favorite. Like a double-jointed mime, each four-show pass offers a combination of entertainment and flexibility, allowing subscribers to swap performance dates an unlimited number of times to suit their shifting schedules.
- Easily the city’s best political theater, InterAct doesn’t produce plays that automatically trumpet the liberal point of view. Instead their shows typically express multiple perspectives, even those that may be considered radical, unpopular, dangerous or even (gasp!) conservative. – Philadelphia Weekly
- …all of the seats were comfortable and they gave you a good view of the stage no matter where you sat. – Bill M., Yelp
