Trading historical accuracy for action, stage adaptations of Plato’s Apology have begun to feature gritty shootouts and a twist ending where Socrates convinces Athenians that they’re in The Matrix. Suspend reality with today's Groupon: $50 gets you a ticket to each of the final three shows of the 2009–10 season at ZACH Theatre, a $115 value. Located near Barton Springs Road, ZACH Theatre serves over 110,000 adults and youth annually with high-quality dramatic, musical, and comedic performances.
Today's Groupon gets you a ticket to each of the following three shows, one of which gained plaudits from the New York Times:
Starring Lauren Lane of TV’s The Nanny, Becky’s New Car portrays the comedic story of Becky, a woman who is offered a chance to change her life after a run-in with an eccentric millionaire. Written and directed by Austin playwright Steven Dietz, the play offers up laughs and unexpected twists certain to keep audiences engaged. (June 3 to July 11)
Five-time Tony award–winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone brings the opulence and grandeur of old-school musicals to an ordinary living room when the characters from one man's favorite album come to life. Soon the man and the audience are engulfed in the hysterical tale of a celebrity bride and her boisterous wedding day. (June 24 to August 1)
As audiences gather around an intimate circular swimming pool, Metamorphoses plunges to the depths of Ovid's myths of transformation in a stunning performance. The series of vignettes, each of which utilize the pool in new and visually stimulating ways, was praised by the The New York Times for its ability to show “that theater can provide not just escape, but sometimes a glimpse of the divine,” just like hiking the Lord of the Rings trail. (August 5 to September 12)
Founded in 1933—the same year stages were invented––by local actor Zachary Scott, ZACH Theatre is an Austin institution worthy of repeat visits, so grab today's Groupon to watch the city's finest professional talent finish out ZACH's diverse season.
