A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear-view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon to the Riverside Theatre in Iowa City. Choose between the following seating options:
- For $33, you get two adult prime-seat tickets to Ah, Wilderness! on Wednesday, June 29 or Thursday, June 30 at 8 pm or two adult prime-seat tickets to The Two Gentlemen of Verona on Wednesday, July 6 or Thursday, July 7 at 8 pm (a $66 value).
- For $27, you get two adult very-fine-seat tickets to Ah, Wilderness! on Wednesday, June 29 or Thursday, June 30 at 8 pm or two adult very-fine-seat tickets to The Two Gentlemen of Verona on Wednesday, July 6 or Thursday, July 7 at 8 pm (a $54 value).
Performing a timeless repertoire with a professional cast of thespians, Riverside Theatre has prevailed as an Iowa City bastion of dramaturgy for 30 years. This season sports a buffet of performances destined to pluck the tautest of heartstrings and induce spasms of laughter. Once Groupon-holders choose between the two seating levels, they can call the box office to reserve seats at either of the plays. Ah, Wilderness! is Eugene O'Neill's comical look at family dynamics, the effects of dissident authors on impressionable youth, and the challenges of successfully grounding an amorous 16-year-old in a 1906 Connecticut town. Theatergoers in the mood for the Bard can choose The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Shakespeare's humorous examination of the foolishness of love, the ties of friendship, and the benefits of cross-dressing.
Seating reservations must be made by June 10.
