What You'll Get
Actors consider it a foul omen to say "Good luck" before a performance, just as "I love you" is a bad way to start a first date. View the product of broken-leg-wishing with today's Groupon: for $17, you get two tickets to any fall/winter show at OnStage Atlanta. Playgoers can get tickets to one of the theater's four fall/winter productions—Side Show, Proof, The Hallelujah Girls, or The Dead Guy.
Since 1971, OnStage has entertained Atlanta audiences with its permanent professional ensemble in an intimate theater. Viewers frustrated by the lack of closure provided by eavesdropping on conversations in public places flock to the company's eclectic mix of works.
On stage now through October 16, the stage musical Side Show chronicles the rise of conjoined twins from circus act to famous stage performers who are forced to decide between love and its flashier cousin, celebrity, in 1930s America. The show is held on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m.
From October 22 through November 6, patrons can enjoy David Auburn's 2001 Tony-winner for best play, Proof. After the death of a mentally ill, genius professor, his daughter and an ex-graduate student question the authenticity of a discovered paradigm-shifting proof about prime numbers in professor's office, and his other daughter explores her fear of continuing in her father's legacy, both mathematically and mentally. The show is held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 5 p.m.
The Hallelujah Girls satiates giggle junkies from November 26 through December 18. Set in an abandoned church turned into a day spa, this comedy follows a group of Georgia women who decide to live out their dreams after one of their friends passes away. The Hallelujah Girls is held Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m.
Finally, The Dead Guy takes stage-goers behind the scenes of a killer reality TV show from January 7 through January 29. During this production, a guy tries spending one million dollars in one week as America watches. At the end of the adventure, however, the catch is he has to die and the viewing audience gets to choose how. The show is held Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m.
