The Sunday Giveaway: A ticket to see King Charles III on Broadway . . . with me!

As I wrote in last Thursday’s blog about the former Seattle critic who was selling his free ticket on Craigslist, where the guy went wrong was not in inviting a member of the public to sit beside him.  It was in charging for the ticket.

There’s nothing wrong with inviting someone you don’t know to sit with you at a show.  There’s a whole lot to be learned from watching a show with someone who is not in the industry, who pays for tickets more than you do, who has different tastes than you do, etc.  It opens your eyes to a different “perspective.”

And since I am a big believer in practicing what I e-preach, that’s what I’m doing with today’s giveaway.

Now that the 2015-16 season is well under way, Tony Voters like me get invites to see all the shows.  The latest one to cross my desk was the recently brilliantly reviewed King Charles III, by one of my favorite contemporary writers, Mike Bartlett (Mike wrote C*ck, which we GMed a couple of years ago, and I can say firsthand that he’s as good of a guy as he is a writer.)

I’m setting up my Tony tickets now . . . and I want one of you to sit with me!  We’ll talk about the theater, the show, see if we agree, disagree, and have a good time.  (And yes, I’m sure we’ll post at least one pic on Instagram.)

Or, I guess, if you don’t like me, you could always sit in silence and still get a free ticket to the show.  🙂

So if you want to see King Charles III on Broadway with me sitting right next to you, tell me in the comments below why you would make a great platonic theater date.

And then we’ll pick a random winner, and tell you where you can send the payment for your ticket.  KIDDING!

Good luck and I look forward to seeing this show with you soon.

(I just thought of something . . . if there are no entries to this week’s giveaway, I’m going to feel like a real idiot.)
