Light (on the Wallet) Entertainment

By Erin

We all know the plight. The rent check's been written, the bills have been paid and that leaves low funds for the fun jar. If you've already consumed Julia's list of free things to do in and around the District, don't panic. While museums close early, drinks can drain a budget and fine dining isn't often affordable, the League of Washington Theatres is coming to the rescue with a Free Night of Theater.

Oh, yes. Thursday, Oct. 19, several local theaters are donating $67,000 of free tickets to their shows. For those who are budget-minded or perhaps wary of the theater, tickets to shows that usually charge over $50 apiece can be enjoyed for free. Interested in catching a look at Signature Theatre's simplified take on "My Fair Lady," meeting Keegan Theatre's "Agnes of God" or finding out the "Nine Parts of Desire" at Arena Stage? You can do it all for less than it would cost you to mail your rent check.

If you can't make it on that night, a few theaters including Washington Stage Guild, Rorschach Theater and Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company are participating at later dates.

Tickets are available beginning this Sunday, Oct. 1 at noon from the League of Washington Theatres' Web site. Each person can reserve two, so be sure to nab a pair before all of the other low-fund fun jar owners leave you in the dust.

Great. But everyone I know who was next to their computers (including myself) couldn't get tickets.
