The Sunday Giveaway: Two Tickets to Nobody Loves You at Second Stage!

Second Stage is becoming quite known for its summer musicals.

Last year it was Dogfight and this year they are bringing you the Itamar Moses and Gaby Alter musical, Nobody Loves You!  (I caught Nobody last year at the Old Globe and thought it was a terrific charmer.)

So what’s it about?

Well, summer lovin’ is definitely in the air, because Nobody Loves You, like the show we gave away tickets to a few weeks ago, First Date, is about dating.

Actually, what show isn’t about dating?  West Side, Les Miz, No, No, Nanette . . . dating is at the core of ’em all, isn’t it?

What makes Nobody a little different is that it’s about a reality TV dating show . . . a kind of “Bachelor” meets “Whore Island” type thing. (Wait – is there not a show called “Whore Island?”  What about “Sleazeball Island?”  Is that it?)

So here’s how one of you is going to win tickets to Nobody Loves You:

Actually no.  Wait a minute.  Two of you are going to win.  Yep, that’s right, I’m hookin’ someone up right here on The Producer’s Perspective.

One of you is going to win one ticket.  And another one is going to win another.  Randomly.  And you’re going to go.  And you’re going to enjoy yourself.  Marriage and children optional.

Hey – it won’t be the worst date ever – at least you know you’ll have theater in common.

Ok?  So if you’re up for some dating adventure . . . comment below with some details and what you’re looking for and I’ll set two of you up.

    I don’t want all that much, just a lady who is fun to hang out with who like to go to a metric ton of shows.

  • Brad B. says:

    I am looking for someone not threatening to my wife…I want to see the show and she doesn’t. She’s kind and understanding…I’m a good husband, and to my knowledge, people seem to like me and my knowledge of shows. =)

  • David Goldstein says:

    What a fun idea.

    If you’re setting me up on a real date, I like a man with a sense of humor. Someone who has their own interests, job, and hobbies. But we share the love of theatre.

    I’m looking for someone who will tie my shoes if we’re walking down the street, and who cant wait to see me when he gets home.

    I’m a f*cking catch. And I want someone who knows and appreciates that.

    Oh, and he also has to be the most handsome man in the world in my eyes.

  • Emily says:

    Hi. I’m a 30-something year old woman who loves going to the theater. Looking for a nice straight Jewish guy to join me on my theater going excursions and maybe if it goes well maybe I’ll buy you a drink where we can discuss the show after!

  • Brian says:

    I am looking for some who excels at winning contests when theatre tickets are the prize. In recent years I have won tickets for The Other Josh Cohen, The Road To Qatar and Leap Of Faith and The Performers from other blogs and websites. On Ken’s blog Some of my entries were mentioned as good and funny but I can never win the tickets, I’ll show and share mine if you show and share yours.

  • Sara Koch says:

    I am looking for someone who I can be myself around and someone who is honest and will be just themselves as well. Also appropriate theatre etiquette is a must, especially if we are going to be attending a show together!!

  • Oh goodness…
    I’d like a man who smiles when I play a cast album. Is that asking much?

  • Meg R. says:

    Not. Homeless.

  • Mike says:

    Male Broadway marketer/promoter/writer seeks female date ranging in age from mid 20s to mid 30s. Must have a basic knowledge of Broadway, as well as a appreciation of both hit musicals and flop musicals. Preferred personality traits incl sense of humor, a down to earth touch, and the willingness to try new things.

  • Rebecca Black says:

    Any man that appreciates a good musical is the man for me!

  • Eugene says:

    This is for my friend Birt Reynolds. You wouldn’t know by the name that he’s a polite southern attorney recently relocated to the city. Quite a catch, my wife and I think. A story: around the time we met Birt in law school, my wife and I went on a first date to the theater in Cleveland. A well-known Irish play, Stones In His Pockets, starring Belki! It was the worst, but we made it anyway, and now enjoy New York theater. Birt should too! A theater date sounds just like what he needs.

  • Lauren M says:

    I’m not picky. Hey he doesn’t even have to be straight! I love them all. Just as long as he enjoys theater. No Debby downers or Harry haters to throw off my groove though.

  • Randi says:

    This is definitely one of your funniest giveaways. Good luck matching people! If your readers include Jason Segel, Joey Gordon-Levitt, Jeremy Jordan, Skylar Astin or Cheyenne Jackson (I do not care if gay or married), please hook me up.

    Also – 30 Rock had “MILF Island” so that counts.

  • Andrew Beck says:

    Actually, I’m just looking for an intelligent friend with whom I can share some theater experiences. Though I’m totally comfortable going by myself to nearly everything, I often find it helps if you have a companion to go to a show like “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” or “Murder Ballad”. When there are tables or a dinner involved.

  • Josh says:

    I am seeking a male or female with a passion for supporting the arts, equal rights and eating pizza.

  • Sarah D. says:

    This is hilarious. I’m looking for a date with excellent theater manners! No talking, no unwrapping candy, no texting, no sleeping while on our theater date!

  • Brittany says:

    I’m a 20-something actress, so any semi-attractive male who likes females and has a sense of humor is good by me. You’d be surprised how few people I know that meet that description! 🙂

  • Ellen Orchid says:

    I’d like to meet a man who is kind, calm, has a sense of humor and really loves theater and enjoys going often. Also,I’m middle-aged so I need someone who knows that Paul McCartney was in a band before “Wings”. Also, I have a little dog and a cat, so please, no pet allergies. Fair enough?

  • Mary Jane Schaefer says:

    I once had an acting teacher who said, “If you’re wondering what your scene is about, it’s
    about sex. Every play is about sex. The theater is simply sex.” This was an elegant but mad silver-haired woman in her seventies. She seemed pretty sure she was right about this.

    This is just a comment on your intro.Not seeking a “win.” I can’t go out and about just now. So, no ticket for me,unless you want to give one to my beautiful 28 year old daughter.

  • Cara says:

    This is awesome. This would be a perfect opportunity to for me to meet someone as the bar scene is just not my thing. I’m a 29 year old preschool teacher, looking for someone to spend time with, enjoying each others company. I both men and women 😉 It goes without saying that someone who likes theatre is a plus. Someone who would get me out and about but not necessarily the party type.

    On the other side of things – I’m also looking for friends who share similar interests : theatre, movies, crafts. Always taking applications for gay husbands!! 😀

  • Cody B says:

    Ive been following rhis blog for a while. Ken, this is awesome. I’m trusting you on this one.

    I am a 21 year old college student in NYC for the summer interning in the theatre.

    I’m not homeless and have good theatre manners, so I’m already meeting criteria!

    Looking for a girl in here early to mid twenties who loves the theatre and is excited to talk about a show, not just say “I liked it!” Bring an exciting story to share and I’ll tell you the story about getting a cease and desist letter from a celebrity while developing a new theatre piece (I wasn’t developing a film for the stage, I promise.)

  • abe says:

    i’m looking for someone who doesn’t mind me seeing other women (onstage, that is)… 😉

  • Bryan Austermann says:

    Hey Producers Perspective World, I’m looking for someone who likes musicals otherwise you’re probably gonna be a bummer on our date at the musical. And just be aware… I go to NYU for musical theater so… I don’t have any money.
    But I’m often a hoot. That, and I have in the past made people woof. And I currently have a killer farmer’s tan. Don’t I just sound like the perfect date? 😉

  • nancy says:

    I’m looking for someone who will cover my head with his trenchcoat so I can sneak into the men’s bathroom when the gal’s line is impossible. Also, it wouldn’t hurt if he has a killer sense of humor, offers to buy over priced raisinets and would go with me to my male friend’s marriage celebration so my friend realizes taht I’m not desperate and that he made a huge mistake!

  • Gabbi Hanes says:

    I would loooove to win tickets and love to be hooked up with someone, but as I’m only 16 I doubt I’ll be chosen (:

    But hey, what the heck. Really, I love anyone who loves theatre as much as I do (which is a lot). I’m an actress and a pianist and I love people with a huge sense of humour because my life is incredibly humourous. I get along win pretty much everyone! My life is completely dedicated to the arts in every single way possible. I’m usually a pretty fun person, I think. ❤

  • gjc says:

    Prefer to meet-up with a female (born-that-way), but as this is NYC I will accept anyone with a nice smile & knowledge of the theater.

    As for me, all I know about dating I get from watching DEXTER :O :O ;P

  • Alexis says:

    I’m looking for someone to share the evening with. I enjoy long, exhausting technical days; calling all the shots; and telling actors where to go. As for why I should win this? Every stage manager needs a break and what better way then to go and see someone else’s show! 😉

  • Sarah P. says:

    This is actually kind of perfect, cuz I was just recently thinking/talking about how I wish I could get back into the dating game (and I can certainly also always use new theatre friends to see shows with, too), AND I’m dying to see this show in particular (I’m a massive Lauren Molina fan 🙂 )! So this would be pretty damn ideal for me…anyway, I’m a 35-year old single gal who finds it hard to meet straight guys given that I work in theatre. (Oh, and said straight guys should ideally LIKE the theatre, too!) Intelligent, witty and shy, seeking same – well, hopefully less shy. 😉 I like to think I’m fairly pretty, although I’m really a big dork at heart. Normally I’m wary of “blind dates,” but this could be an adventure! And at the very least we’ll probably enjoy the show.

  • Jen S. says:

    This is such a cute idea!

    I am a fresh out of college theatre major, currently interning at a great off Broadway theater! Hoping to make a career in not-for-profit theatre in the very near future!

    I love to go to the theatre & find every experience engaging and inspirational.

    I am looking for a guy in his twenties who is just as passionate about theatre & the arts as I am. I love seeing shows & having deep discussions about them after, not just seeing something & leaving it for good! If you come ready to be yourself & bond over how great this city is I know we can have a good time! Maybe some Schmakary’s after too :)!

  • EllenFD says:

    Looking for a fun theater partner whom hubby won’t get annoyed about. Man, woman, unsure–all welcome!

  • Ari says:

    I just want a person who won’t sing or hum next to me at the show. And won’t rock his/her chair. I have low standards, as you can guess.

  • Leonie says:

    Hello Ken!

    I have been reading your blog for about a year now. Living in the UK I was always gutted I couldn’t join your awesome competitions! 😀 BUT now I just moved to the US for an internship in theater management at the beginning of June and so I can finally join!

    I’m 22 and this would be my 2nd Broadway show! I’d be happy with anyone around my age, as I’m still trying to meet some new people (I didnt know a single person in NY, but my love for musical theatre brought me here). I already enjoy NYC so much, but this would make it even better! Seems like the perfect chance to meet someone like minded, no matter if boy or girl, date or a potential new friend! 🙂

    Good luck to everyone else!

  • Randi says:

    Fun idea! I want to meet someone who is kind and enjoys going to shows.

  • Judith says:

    get me out of michigan!!! back to my NY roots… grew up listening to Broadway tunes every night at dinner… fun to be with someone who “gets” all the allusions… and some illusions too… my mom will also appreciate the visit 🙂

  • Larry Segall says:

    Love my wife, after almost 40 years, besides being funny, she cuts right to the chase, she love NYC theater(Broadway and Off/Off Broadway), must be since she is alao a gifted writer. To Sherri, my favorite playwright. Larry

  • Mary McCann says:

    I like to attend plays & musicals and I would like someone who does too! I appreciate many different styles. I enjoyed “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff” & “Potted Potter”. Theater can be meaningful, just plain fun, or a combination of the two. If you like going to the theater-great! If you also like hanging out & talking before or after the show-extra bonus!

  • Micheline says:

    Cute idea!
    Handsome, fun, straight, single 😉
    (And, if none of the above, at least fun!)

  • Karen Bail says:

    I happen to be coming up to the city July 17 and I would really enjoy going with a man who loves theatre! The kicker is that I am 61 years young. I love theatre and I see as many shows as I can when I travel up there. The advantage to dating me is that I live in Florida-if it works out my date could leave the art I north for a visit!

  • Anthony says:

    I would like to see a show with someone who likes seeing shows.

    We all know these things never work, though.

  • Shannon D. says:

    I’m kind of in the same boat as Brad. I’m married but love seeing shows. However, due to unforeseen circumstances I can no longer attend shows (unless they are free). I’m a very friendly, kind, considerate and passionate person and I’ve been told by other people that they enjoy going to shows with me.

  • Karen Campbell says:

    Bachelor #1: Contrary to what many prefer, my favorite theater seat is first row, center… (unless it’s a Jonathan Groff musical.) I like to feel like the show is being put on just for me. In your best persuasive tone, try to convince me that another seat is better.

    Bachelor #3: I like to see 3-6 shows a month so I end up recognizing many talented ensemble members as they move from show to show. Name at least 1 non-headliner that you would buy a ticket to see, even if you weren’t convinced you’d love the show.

    Bachelor #2: My theater “noes” are talking, texting, eating (gum included) and being asked my thoughts on the show/actors while in the theater. My “yesses” are trying to dress a bit nicer than usual and staying until the orchestra finishes to applaud for them. What are yours?

  • Nan says:

    Hi! Am a Jersey girl with a passion for adventure, serendipity, & the theater. Have lived all over the world & enjoyed meeting people everywhere I’ve been, so am sure I’d love sharing a day or evening with any of the other candidates.

  • George Strus says:

    I need someone who understands that if we have an aisle seat, I NEED IT.

  • ECP says:

    Male, seeking a friend for the end of the world. Kidding. Though I love me my indie movies. I also go mainstream and line up for a new “Star Trek.”

    If you (whatever gender) didn’t applaud TX Senator Wendy Davis, in her salmon sneaks, puting a bunch of out-of-touch white (mostly) males in their place, any post-show conversation could get testy.

    My likes are all over the place. Looking forward to force-of-nature Mark Rylance returning to Broadway this fall, and the superb Harriet Walter crossing the pond to Brooklyn, both performing Shakespeare. I’ll likely drop everything for Sutton Foster, Angela Lansbury, and Laura Linney. “Matilda”? You go girl! Though often drawn to cheap-seat productions (eg NYTW), readings, alt performance spaces, and (some) immersive/site-specific shows.

    A walker, I enjoy roaming nabes and finding welcoming hole-in-the-wall places for food, bevs, chat, and entertainment. Some venues in the Rockaways, LIC, and Staten Island are tempting me right now.

    Voracious reader who revisits some Dickens, Hardy, and Lawrence every year. Colum McCann and Phillip Meyer novels thrill me. And just-published memoirs by James Salter and Edna O’Brien are wonderful.

    Nostalgia is overrated. And if the past is a foreign country, let’s focus on the present and laugh a lot.
