He who laughs last laughs best, unless he doesn't finish laughing before the funeral starts. Empty your chuckle reservoirs in an appropriate setting with today's Groupon: for $30, you get four tickets to any Off Broadway Theatre performance or improv show (up to a $64 value at $16 per adult ticket). Located downtown, Off Broadway runs a seasonally changing gamut of famous comedies, musicals, and plays, along with outrageous parodies of said famous productions. Utah's longest running improv show, Laughing Stock, makes its home alongside the theater performances, and the unscripted funniness happens every Friday and Saturday night. Bring three friends to giggle through Kung Fooey: A Spaghetti Western or choose sides at Dracula vs. Jekyll & Hyde. Call ahead to reserve tickets for side-splitting theater, which is always better than pants-splitting theater.
The Off Broadway Theatre
The name doesn't lie—located in Salt Lake City, The Off Broadway Theatre is about as far from The Great White Way as you can get. But geography hasn't stopped the space from staging New York-caliber classic musicals and original comedies for nearly 20 years. The auditorium rings with laughter during beloved productions such as Little Shop of Horrors and The Pirates of Penzance, and house-written parodies including The Adventures of Sheer-Luck Homes and Snotson , The X-Mas Men, and Dracula vs. any number of monsters once portrayed by Boris Karloff. Audience members get the chance to join in on the hilarity during interactive sets from the resident jokesters of the Laughing Stock Comedy Troupe.
