What a fun time !! The Austin Facial Hair Club did a phenomenal job hosting competitors from 36 countries! The day was perfect, the vendors great and a lot of money was raised to support 3 Austin based charities as well as acknowledging the need after Harvey. Still time to get you're ticket for Sunday - you won't believe the free style beards that could appear.

What You'll Get


Jump to: Reviews

Today’s Groupon offers an upgrade from your biography audio books. For $25, you’ll hear legendary lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s candid confessions at The Long Center on Thursday, November 12; the Austin Chronicle’s Robert Faires will prompt the esteemed composer to reflect on his career, collaborations, and creative process during the 8 p.m. event.

Sondheim’s illustrious credits include Gypsy, West Side Story, Sweeney Todd, and Sweeney Todd 2: American Ninja, making him one of the most important artists to work in American musical theater over the past 50 years. This unscripted conversation not only examines his personal and professional lives, but also explores the state of theater today. You’ll take in the performance from seats in the left and right parterre section, rows BB–GG, of Michael and Susan Dell Hall.

Marathon episodes of VH-1’s Behind the Music have you well-versed in the explicit exploits of '80s hair bands and '90s rappers, but you blank when it comes to the background of harmonious heavyweight Stephen Sondheim. This Groupon will broaden your cultural horizons, help you become a better Trivial Pursuit partner, and provide you with a new appreciation for the stage.

Reviews

Stephen Sondheim’s shows struck a harmonious cord with the media: NPR, Time magazine, and the Sondheim Review, a quarterly publication devoted to the lyrical genius, have all featured them.

  • Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim, 79, continues to dominate the genre he has constantly reinvented, first with Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins on West Side Story in 1957, Company (1970), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1979) and Sunday in the Park with George (1984). – Carla Power, Time
