Win two tickets to see “The Play That Goes Wrong” for free
I’m holding this contest to help promote 20at20, a terrific program that offers $20 tickets to 20+ Off Broadway shows, 20 minutes before showtime. This year the discount program will run for (natch) 20 days, from September 3rd to September 22nd.
“The Play That Goes Wrong,” which ran for 745 performances on Broadway, before it transferred to New World Stages,is the comic invention of the Mischief Theater, which introduces the fictional ‘Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society’ who are attempting to put on a 1920s’ murder mystery, but as the title suggests, everything that can go wrong…does, to hilarious effect.
To enter the contest for the tickets, just answer this question:
What has gone wrong for you in the theater?
Describe a specific incident, either as a theatergoer or a theater artist – something that you either witnessed or in which you were involved — preferably an incident you can look back at now and laugh about.
Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, because I will choose the winner at random, using Random.org, based on the order of your reply, not its content.
But you must answer the question – tell us a real story, with specifics (what show?), and a beginning middle and end — or your entry will not be approved for submission.
This contest ends Tuesday, August 27th at midnight Eastern Time, and I will make the drawing no later than noon the next day. You must respond within 12 hours or I will pick another winner.
The winner will be given a voucher for tickets on any Wednesday, Thursday, or Sunday performance in September and October. (Tickets are subject to availability. Blackout dates may apply.)
Update: Naomi Serviss (#20) won the random drawing. But stay tuned, there’s a new ticket giveaway contest for a different show coming this afternoon.
