Unbroken Circle Ticket Giveaway Contest

Update: The winner of the random drawing is Brad Widener.

Ticket Giveaway: Win two tickets to see “Unbroken Circle”  a new play by James Wesley, described as a “comedic Southern gothic tale” that explores a Texan family’s dark secrets as they return home for the patriarch’s funeral. Critics compared it to “August: Osage County.” The seven-member cast features Anika Larsen (Xanadu, Avenue Q), the playwright Wesley himself and his real-life daughter Juli Wesley, as well as Eve Plumb, best-known as the put-upon middle daughter of “The Brady Bunch.”

It is produced by Seth Rudetsky (yes, that Seth Rudetsky) and Mary J. Davis

“Unbroken Circle” is being performed at St. Luke’s Theatre (308 West 46th Street.)

  1. Next to normal! The family is so dysfunctional but you learn to love them! @kyledmoralea

  2. The description of “Unbroken Circle” really knocked the wind out of my answer, but AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. Tragedy. Humor. Tragedy again. Humor again. And pills. Lots of pills. I think it’s the most cutting edge serio-comedy since WOOLF. It truly changed the way I watch and would want to write theater. (@ArtWineWhimsy)

  3. Next to Normal! It’s a terrific story about a grieving family that is also struggling to cope with the effects of mental illness. It’s the first show I saw on Broadway and one of the shows that made me truly fall in love with theatre.


  4. Shenandoah. The story of the indominable Anderson family as they struggle with their anti war stance — during the Civil War. Soaring, heart-wrenching music plus fully drawn characters make this a favorite for actors and singers alike.

  5. My favorite stage play about a family is All My Sons by Arthur Miller. The story of a family that unravels and tries to cope as its patriarch crumbles under the weight of his questionable actions during wartime? Not a play that’s going to fill your day with sunshine and roses but it’s powerful nonetheless.

    My twitter handle is the same as my email in the form below and I follow you on this platform. Thank you kindly for the chance.

  6. “Next to Normal” is my favorite stage show about a family. It’s dramatic, emotional, and unique with an engaging story and score. @mymusicboxes

  7. “You Can’t Take it With You”…they are completely nutty, but they are love and accept each other. Those wacky Sycamores and co. never wish anything bad on anyone, they do what makes them happy. Simple as that. @bbwithpickles

  8. Next to Normal is my favorite stage family. It is so real, dramatic, and emotional. The show centers around this quirky and unbalanced family. It takes you on a ride the whole show, from happiness to grieving and loss, and to finally realizing the need to move on and finding light at the end of a dark road.


  9. My TWitter name is TCMNo.1 and my favorite theatre family is the one in Long Day’s Journey into Night. What a nightmare! A drug addict , cheapness, alcohol, loneliness – it’s got it. What a miserable bunche
