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: for $50, you get four tickets for any of the six remaining shows in the 2010–2011 season at Theatre Memphis (a $100 value). This Groupon cannot be used for tickets to A Christmas Carol, but Groupon-holders are entitled to buy-one-get-one-free tickets for that show.
One of the oldest community theaters in the country, Theatre Memphis has been putting on high-quality productions for 90 years. The 2010–2011 season features six highly acclaimed plays and musicals fit for auditory and sensory feasting. Tony Award nominee for Best Book of a Musical, [title of show] (January 14–30), is a love letter to the musical theater that follows two struggling writers in a race to craft an entry to a musical theater festival. Amadeus (February 4–20) traces Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as he rises to become the number one ranked composer in the eyes of Austrian Emperor Josef. March 11–April 3, the stage and its reddest curtains dance to Cabaret, along with a charmingly carefree nightclub performer. Richard III, the third in William Shakespeare’s acclaimed three-part Richard series, appears April 8–24, preparing the stage for Picnic (April 29–May 15) and Crazy for You (June 3–26).
In addition to cushy seats and live entertainment, theater-goers also get a Theatre Memphis Membership Card that affords discounts at merchants including Poplar Perk'n, Fratellis, Dinstuhl's, and two-for-one tickets to A Christmas Carol, which features a completely renovated set (December 3–23).
