Theater has evolved far beyond its primitive roots as a way of fooling bandits and marauders into thinking they're stuck in an inter-dimensional vortex. Today's Groupon allows you to enjoy the catharsis with a $15 ticket to The Piano Teacher at Southern Rep Theatre (up to a $29 value). This offer is good for all May performances, with the exception of Saturday shows and the May 21 show, and customers can purchase up to three tickets. See the sidebar for specific dates and times.
A smash off-Broadway hit, The Piano Teacher tells the haunting tale of the sweetly maternal Mrs. K, a piano teacher whose past may be much darker than her cookie-chomping demeanor reveals. Penned by Susan Smith Blackburn Prize recipient Julia Cho, directed by Mark Routhier, and performed by a collection of top local and national talent, The Piano Teacher presents audiences with a riveting amalgam of suspense and storytelling prowess.
For more than 20 years, Southern Rep Theatre has produced and championed new and interesting plays often overlooked by other theaters. Southern Rep's intimate 144-seat entertainment cave provides an intimate experience that allows audiences to immerse themselves in the world of the play, causing the occasional gasp and scared jump during its dramatic climax. Although occasionally macabre, The Piano Teacher is rated "PG" for family audiences.
