Ticket Giveaway: Win two tickets to see “Orphans,” the play by Lyle Kessler that stars Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster and Tom Sturridge. It tells the story of two orphaned brothers living a rough life in North Philadelphia when they decide to kidnap a notorious Chicago gangster – with unexpected results. The revival is directed by Daniel Sullivan (Glengarry Glen Ross)

“Orphans” began performances March 26th, and opens on April 18th. It is scheduled to run through June 30th at Broadway’s Gerald Schoenfeld Theater.

To enter the contest, answer either of these two question:


1. What is your favorite stage show involving crimes and criminals? Describe the show and explain why it’s your favorite.  


2. What is your favorite performance by any of the three actors in “Orphans’ – Alec Baldwin, Ben Foster or Tom Sturridge – and why?


1. Please put your answer in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, because the winner will be chosen through based on the order of your reply, not its content.

But you must answer the one of the two questions, fully (not just the title of your favorite show or role) or your entry will not be approved for submission.

2. 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.)

3. This contest ends Tuesday, April 2, 2013 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 tickets are for a performance on Tuesday, Wednesday or  Thursday through 4/23, except for 4/18 which is the opening. You have to be in New York City and able to attend one of the designated performances.)

Update: Please follow the instructions above carefully. If you do not include your Twitter name on your post, for example, you are ineligible for the prize.  And only one comment per contestant.
