What You'll Get
Mad scientists and sociopathic comedians agree there is very little difference between humor and horror, as evidenced by the international community's views on tickle-torture. Freak your funny bone with today's Groupon at The Orpheum Theatre in Foxboro. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get one general-admission ticket to Comedy Night Live (a $15 value). Choose from the following 8:00 p.m. shows: March 25, April 29, May 20, June 24, July 29, or August 26.
- For $5, you get one general-admission ticket to an 11:00 p.m. movie (a $10 value). Choose between showings of Repo! The Genetic Opera (March 25, May 27, or July 29) or The Rocky Horror Picture Show (April 29, June 11, or August 26).
Conceived as a silent-movie house in 1926 and struck down by the fickle powers-that-be in 1989, The Orpheum Theatre was resurrected like a singing, disembodied head in 1994 to provide quality live performances and an outlet for audiences to hurl detritus at the screen at preordained times. Eschewing two-dimensional entertainment, The Orpheum Theatre hosts Comedy Night Live, a monthly chortle-conference featuring a plethora of clever punsmiths and giggle-jockeys. The farcical festivities of March 25, hosted by Boston's Jenny Zigrino, include Will Noonan, E.J. Murphy, and headliner Tom Gilmore.
Audiences who prefer a greater degree of interaction with their entertainment may satiate their inner vamp with contemporary camp-horror comedy Repo! The Genetic Opera or the classically time-warped Rocky Horror Picture Show. Both screenings will be shadow-cast by the Harvard-based theater troupe, RKO Army, fusing cinema and live theater to create an unstoppable spork-like weapon of entertainment. Nylon neophytes should check out RKO Army's dos-and-don'ts of item-flinging, from the water-squirting of Rocky Horror to the kidney-chucking of Repo!.
