The history of theater goes all the way back to the 1970s, when audiences were eager to see "living movies." See how far these unfilmed talkabouts have come in only 40 years with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one general-admission ticket to see the Plays and Players production of Lost in Yonkers (up to a $20 value). The performances will be in the theater's black-box-style Skinner Studio on the third floor, which is not accessible by elevator. This Groupon is valid for one of the following performances: Sunday, June 5 at 3 p.m.; Thursday, June 9 at 8 p.m.; Friday, June 10 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, June 11 at 2 p.m.; or Sunday, June 12 at 3 p.m.
Dazzling audiences since 1911, Plays and Players boasts a troupe of talented thespians ready to take on Lost in Yonkers, a play that has won four Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize, and countless fist pumps. The complex and sharp-witted coming-of-age story follows two brothers sent to live in Yonkers, New York. Written by Neil Simon and directed by Betty Chomentowski, the approximately two-hour comedic drama depicts the struggles the brothers face after their father sends them to live with their immigrant grandmother, simple-minded aunt, and hooligan uncle. During the performance's 15-minute intermission, audience members can wipe tears of laughter from their eyes or mend the tears in their skulls incurred while thinking too deeply about the play's lessons on family relationships.
