Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a prime A ticket (up to a $58 value) to Mixtape: The Greatest Hits of the 80s - Live, presented by Lamb's Players Theatre at the Horton Grand Theatre. The show has been extended through Sunday, September 4.
Mixtape: The Greatest Hits of the 80s - Live is a loving romp through the days when legs needed constant warming and only members were allowed to wear jackets. Accompanied by a live band, the Lamb's Players Theatre cast lends its vocal cords and laser-guided toes to a high-energy revue of the greatest hits of the Reagan years, showcasing music from Genesis, Journey, U2, Duran Duran, the B-52s, Billy Joel, Madonna, Tears for Fears, Michael Jackson, and more. Neon aerobics costumes, full-scale geometric sets, retro choreography, and a 12-foot animatronic Anthony Michael Hall all add authenticity to the synth-powered time warp. Despite the "Greed is Good" trappings, Lamb's Players Theatre remains an artist-directed, nonprofit theater company committed to presenting widely known classics such as The Music Man alongside premieres and lesser-known gems such as Trying.
Tickets for youth (ages 5–17) and members of the Under 30 Years Old Club may be a lower price from Lamb’s Players Theatre directly, depending on the performance time chosen. The Lamb's Players Theatre also has half price tickets for Thursday performances in June. Check the show schedule to ensure you’re getting the best value.
