Win Tickets to See THE MEMORY SHOW

Hey, guys! We're back with another contest to win free tickets-- this time, it's to see The Memory Show, a musical by Sara Cooper and Zach Redler that will be playing at The Duke on 42nd from April 16-May 18. I had the pleasure of getting to see a preview of this show at NAMT a few years ago, and it is a really beautiful, complex story of a daughter who moves back home to care for her aging mother. One of my favorite songs from the show is below, titled "Me and My Mother":

This new production stars powerhouses Catherine Cox and Leslie Krtizer and promises to be a powerful night of theatre. Want to see it for free? Here's all you need to do to enter:
  • To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post mentioning your favorite theatre memory by midnight on Saturday 4/6.
  • I will randomly draw one winner to receive a voucher for 2 tickets to a performance of his/her choice. Remember to check back here on this blog on Sunday night (4/7) to see if you've won.

CONTEST RESTRICTIONS: Winner receives a voucher redeemable for two tickets to a performance of their choice.  Voucher expires May 18, 2013.  Blackout dates and other restrictions may apply.

Here are more deets from the show:

Showing up is half the battle...and then there's the other half. When a daughter comes home to care for her aging mother, memory is only one land mine in this contemporary new musical. Conflicting versions of the past collide in this honest and darkly funny portrait of a mother, a daughter, and their inescapable relationship.

Drama Desk & OBIE Award winning Transport Group Theatre Company brings you the New York premiere of The Memory Show, with book & lyrics by Sara Cooper and music by Zach Redler. Directed by Lucille Lortel Award winner Joe Calarco (Shakespeare's R & J), The Memory Show stars Tony Award nominee Catherine Cox (Baby, Footloose) and Drama Desk Award nominee Leslie Kritzer (A Catered Affair, Rooms).

The Duke on 42nd Street- 229 West 42nd Street

One of my favorite theatre memories is seeing the first preview of The Light in the Piazza in Chicago - I knew nothing about the show, and it was just a magical experience.

When I was in college, my German professor dragged her entire class to an operatic production of Cinderella, performed in French. Though neither the language nor the subject matter had anything to do with the class, it was my first experience with the performing arts and its awesomeness.

My favorite theater memory was seeing Angela Lansbury in deuce on broadway. I had idolized her my entire childhood and watched evey episode of Murder She Wrote. At the end of the show I got the opportunity to meet Angela in person and briefly speak with her. She signed my playbill, and it's framed in my home. The woman is inspirational and just as elegant as she portrays herself as an actress. Certainly my favorite theater memory!

I have a thing for Shakespeare. Seriously. If he was alive today, I'd date him.
In fact, in college I took every Shakespeare class I could despite the fact that I had tested out of English and wasn't required to take a single Lit course.
My best theatre memory was my first trip to London combined with my first live Shakespearean play. At the Globe. So what if it's a reproduction? It was like meeting a long awaited idol on his home turf.

My favorite theatre memory is seeing CAROLINE, OR CHANGE in previews at the Public before knowing anything about it. The ending scene between Caroline and Noah ("weren't never friends") knocked the breath out of me and then Anika Noni Rose's final song drove me to tears (my partner still makes fun of me). A runner up for a favorite memory would be sitting in front of Sondheim for ROAD SHOW at the Public and seeing an usher chase after and scold him for going through a side door after the show.

Hey I know the contest is over, but I thought I would post a comment anyway. (Because I want to share this memory.) Back in high school, I believe, Hugh Jackman was on Broadway in the "Boy From Oz." I got tickets by paying the $50 or whatever it was back then and sitting all the way in the back row in the nosebleed section. The theater was packed with suburban housewives in love with Mr. Jackman. I was sandwiched between a very obese man on my left and a very young high school student (and probably gay) on my right. I remember that the obese man didn't really fit in his seat (Broadway seats are tiny anyway) and pretty much watched the show standing yeah..that is my memory.

Broadway show tickets! Almost all of these are associated with a timeshare resort, and in order to get the tickets you will have to sit through a timeshare presentation.
