Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about non-existent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's deal: for $15, you get one ticket to Unnecessary Farce at Not Another Theater Company (a $29 value). As Syracuse's only theater specializing in bringing traditional and innovative performances to a dinner theater setting, your ticket price includes either dinner or brunch, ensuring that rumbling stomachs don't underscore enthusiastic applause. The 2011 season kicks off with Unnecessary Farce, an American comedy written by Paul Slade Smith and directed by Meaghan Pearson. This single set, two-act farce centers around two inexperienced police officers attempting to uncover an embezzlement scheme in an economy motel riddled with mystery, secrets, and missing pillow mints.

Dinner includes chicken cordon bleu or a vegetarian option, with complimentary coffee. A full cash bar is also available.
