Special Offer for "The Pain and the Itch" Tickets

A nice thing that happened this week: After I posted my review of "The Pain and the Itch" below, the good people of Playwrights Horizons e-mailed to ask if I'd be interested in sharing a special ticket offer for the show on my blog. Well, I love discounts and I really loved the play, so this seems like a great deal for all involved! The press release is below, with the discount information at bottom. See it and laugh/gasp/weep.

A blistering new comedy by BRUCE NORRIS
Directed by ANNA D. SHAPIRO

Now through October 8
Playwrights Horizons Mainstage Theater
416 West 42nd Street between 9th & 10th Avenues

In this “massively entertaining” (Time Out Chicago) new play, one privileged family’s average Thanksgiving unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives when their four year-old daughter begins displaying some alarming symptoms. A controversial hit at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, "The Pain and the Itch" takes dead aim at liberal America, presenting a hysterically funny, all-too-rare look at our world, our times, and ourselves.

The cast includes Mia Barron, Aya Cash, Peter Jay Fernandez, Ada-Marie L. Gutierrez, Jayne Houdyshell (Tony nomination, Well), Vivien Kells, Reg Rogers (Tony nomination, Holiday; Bach at Leipzig), and Obie Award winner Christopher Evan Welch (Romance; Festen).

Discount: Order by Sept 26, and tickets are $40 (reg. $65) for performances through September 17; and $47 (reg. $65) for performances September 19-October 8. Limit 4 tickets per order. Subject to availability.

  1. I'm glad they contacted you! I showed your blog to the people in MY office (the subscription sales department) and my boss showed it to all the big wigs in a staff meeting. That's why they contacted you. I'm glad they liked your blog so much!
