A philosopher once called theatre “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $12, you get one general-admission ticket to any sixth-season production at Moxie Theatre (a $25 value), located on El Cajon Boulevard. Seating is first-come, first-serve. Groupons may not be used for opening-night performances.
A nonprofit celebration of bold theatrics, Moxie Theatre sinks its teeth into tantalizing topics throughout its sixth season lineup, colorfully summarized by the season's overarching theme, "In Celebration of Bad Girls." The five-production season includes Eleemosynary, a witty portrayal of family functionality across three generations of women (running September 1–September 26); a classically frightening rendition of The Crucible (October 30–December 5); and The Toughest Girl Alive, an autobiographical musical detailing the nearly true story of Candye Kane, who's been, among other things, a punk rocker, teen mother, adult-film star, and cancer survivor (mature audiences only, January 13–February 6). Rounding out the season are two additional productions, Or, and Ten Cent Night, in the spring and summer. For complete listings, descriptions, and schedules, click here.
Every Moxie production boasts characters and content exhibiting the characteristics of "moxie," or courage, guts, and toughness. Get your performance-watching paws on a ticket and see how Moxie's moxie compares to the bravery displayed by you and your team of Komodo-dragon whisperers on a daily basis.
