Sample Night Live - Northwestern Precinct: $10 for Two Adult Tickets to Sample Night Live at History Theatre in St. Paul (Up to $40 Value)

Mankind demonstrates its superiority to other ape species by examining its own condition through music, theater, and bitingly poignant banana-peel gags. See how your fellow man flaunts his primordial dominance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two adult tickets to Sample Night Live, held on the first Wednesday of every month at History Theatre in downtown St. Paul (up to a $40 value). Children younger than 12 accompanied by a parent are admitted free to the G-rated first-act performance at 7 p.m.

Sample Night Live thrills audiences with a dozen 10-minute previews from upcoming performances around the Twin Cities. Minnesotans catch snippets of local artists split into two acts (a G-rated first act and an unrated second act) featuring everything from theater actors, poetry slammers, and novelty acts to puppeteers, stand-up comedians, and Attila the Hun impersonators. Recent shows included a retelling of seven myths performed Sergio Leone-style with finger guns and live music and the Gaelic kicking of Rince na Chroi School of Irish Dance. Check out the April 6 show for a heaping dose of Vicky Mountain jazz and hirsute laugh riots launched by Bearded Men Improv.

Audiences connect with their newfound artistic soulmates by opting in to the artists' mailing lists via the playbill, which has connected more than 4,000 fans to more than 300 arts organizations. At the end of the evening, droves of the recently entertained cast ballots for their favorite performer and a chance to win prizes such as tickets to the Guthrie Theater, increasing chances that an awkward first date will lead to an awkward second one.

It was a great mid-week event to attend. If a particular act wasn't my style, I needed only wait a few minutes to experience something else I really enjoyed. It was well done and very enjoyable!
