Ticket Giveaway: Win two tickets to see Bright Star for free.
Steve Martin and Edie Brickell’s new musical Bright Star opens at Broadway’s Cort Theater on March 24, 2016, with a country and bluegrass score, directed by Walter Bobbie with a cast of 22 including Carmen Cusack and Paul Alexander Nolan. Inspired by a real event, this original musical tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ‘40s.
To enter the contest for a free pair of tickets to Bright Star, answer this question:
What is the best song from any Broadway show past or present? What makes it so?
- Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, because the winner will be chosen through Random.org based on the order of your reply, not its content.
But you must answer the question, complete with explanation or your entry will not be approved for submission.
- Please include in your answer your Twitter name and follow my Twitter feed at @NewYorkTheater so that I can send you a direct message. (If you don’t have a Twitter name, create one. It’s free.)
- This contest ends Monday, March 21, 2016 at midnight Eastern Time, and I will make the drawing no later than noon the next day. You must respond to my direct message on Twitter within 24 hours or I will choose another winner.
The winner will receive a voucher for a pair of tickets to see Bright Star on any performance on Tuesday to Thursday evenings from 4/26/2016 to 6/9/2016. Obviously, you have to be in New York sometime during this period in order to see the show.
