Ticket Giveaway: Bedlam’s Hamlet and Saint Joan. Most Memorable Holiday Experience At The Theater?

BedlamposterWin a pair of tickets to either Bedlam’s Hamlet or St. Joan. The  much-lauded Bedlam theater company employs just four actors playing all the roles (more than 50), offering “an experience so intense and concentrated,” the Wall Street Journal said, “that you’ll feel as though you were part of the action.”

The two classic plays are performing in repertory through February 2, 2014 at the Lynn Redgrave Theater on Bleecker Street.

To enter the contest, simply answer this question:

  1. My most memorable theater moment during the holidays was seeing a christmas story last year. It was an amazing family-oriented musical that I saw with my family and it made us get into the christmas spirit! @kyledmorales

  2. One of my most memorable experience would be when a group of us saw two holiday shows in one day, I believe it was 2010. We went to the 5 pm Christmas show at Radio City, stopped for some holiday cheer and then we headed down to the Hirschfeld where we saw Elf the musical. We all sung Buddy the Elf all the way home! Great times!

  3. Watching my first Broadway show, The Lion King, the day before Thanksgiving. Those first 10 minutes are still some of the most incredible in a theatre ever.

  4. My most memorable Christmas moment in the theater would have to be the year I was performing in A very innovative production of a Christmas Carol. Done in collaboration with a deaf theater group, we used sign language to represent the language of the heart, A language Scrooge had forgotten. The best image in the show was of Marley’s ghost. Two actors one playing Marley’s disembodied head voicing the lines and his headless body performing the sign language. Magic!

  5. When I played one of Santa’s elves in a children’s show. We started with inviting the children to a workshop, where they could help us make toys. So many little kids telling me that Santa didn’t exist and I wasn’t a real elf.. still stayed in role though!

  6. @Lavesq My most memorable holiday theater moment was taking my little cousin to see her first Radio City Xmas Spectacular. She was mesmerized by the Rockettes. It brought a tear to
    this jaded New Yorker’s eyes!

  7. I saw The Christmas Spectacular last week, so that has to be my favorite so far. (This is my first holiday season living in the City!) Looking forward to A Christmas Story next week!


  8. 15 Minutes left!

    Being an avid “plays only” theater goer- I was magically inspired and changed by seeing a middle school production of “The Nutcracker”. Such spunk, electricity, and pure story telling within the dancers. INSPIRING!
