The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Rocky Horror in MN, Shrek in CA and Silence in NY

The two biggest pieces of feedback I got from my Producer’s Perspective survey was 1) more details on the day to day of production a show (see Godspell blog) and 2) more giveaways for people around the country (see THIS blog!)

Today, I’ve got tickets to giveaway for three great shows in three great theater cities around the country.

We’ll have three separate winners this week, one for each show in each city.

For NYers, we’ve got two tickets to Silence, the “unauthorized” (ooooh) musical version of Silence of the Lambs, which features Jenn Harris, Brent Barrett and one of my favorite funnymen in the city (and original cast member of The Awesome 80s Prom), Jeff Hiller.  Silence is also directed by my Godspell and Altar Boyz choreographer, Christopher Gattelli.  By the way, if you think Book of Mormon is the only musical that uses the “C” word in a lyric, you’re wrong.  🙂

For you Hollywood types, we’ve got two tickets to see Shrek at The Pantages in Los Angeles, where the Green Monster will be running from 7/12 – 7/31.  I love seeing touring productions of shows, especially after I’ve seen them on Broadway, because you can see how the team adapted the show and the set to travel from city to city in a bunch of buses and trucks.  Some shows do it well, some don’t.  But I’m hearing a lot of good things from Ogreland.

And finally, in my favorite little theater city in the Midwest, Minneapolis, we’ve got two tickets to an immersive Rocky Horror.  And if you think this is just another small regional production, you’d be mistaken. They’ve recorded a ‘single,’ made a commercial, and have got some home-grown American Idol talent in the show, which takes place in a 6,000sq ft warehouse.

So how do you win?

As much as I love NYC and think it is the theater capital of the world, great theater happens all over (because there are great theater people all over).

Comment below with the best theater experience you’ve had in a city (any city) other than NYC.  Let’s give some shout-outs to some other great cities cross the country.

And let’s give away some tickets!
