A Perfect $10
Unless you won big bucks at a Halloween costume party, chances are good that you don't have the $80 that it takes to score a top seat at one of the elite theaters around town. While I am a huge fan of local theater, the cost is prohibitively high. Thankfully, Shakespeare Theatre has just launched 20/10, a program for patrons ages 35 and under that offers $10 tickets. If, for some reason, the current shows -- like the superlative "Taming of the Shrew" -- at Shakespeare don't appeal, there are a few more theater bargains to snap up in the coming days.
Each Tuesday at 10 a.m., the theater's box office will sell 20 pairs of $10 tickets to each of the company's productions through the following Sunday. Patrons who get there early enough will have their choice of any Shakespeare Theatre show running that week. Tickets are available to anybody 35 or younger.
To mark the kickoff of the new 20/10 program, all tickets to the Tuesday, Nov. 6 production of "Tamburlaine" at the new Harman Hall will be $10 for those 35 and under. DJ Quadratic will also be spinning before and after the performance.
In the meantime, anybody can score $10 tickets to the final performances of Sola Nua's "Made in China." Enter keyword "Coupon" during checkout or mention it at the box office. Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m.
Next Saturday, Nov. 10, pay what you can to catch the 2 p.m. performance of Conor McPherson's "Shining City" at Studio Theatre. I was definitely spooked by this captivating show on Broadway last year. Studio should be an interesting venue for the show's D.C. debut and is certainly worth paying whatever you can muster.
