The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to the Pulitzer Prize winning Disgraced on Broadway!
If it wasn’t for the production of Disgraced that is in previews at the Lyceum Theatre right now, the last three Pulitzer Prize winners for Drama would have only had Off Broadway productions in New York. Whereas 9 of the previous 10 winners had Broadway productions (sounds like another infographic coming, doesn’t it?).
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Off Broadway, but it seems crazy to think that the winners of the most important prize for American plays don’t always get Broadway productions, doesn’t it? If that doesn’t tell you about the changing Broadway audience and the challenges of producing new plays on Broadway, I don’t know what does.
Thankfully, Lincoln Center and their courageous commercial producing partners have made sure that the 2013 winner, Disgraced, which tackles the tough subject of Islamophobia, got on the boards this year, after receiving rave reviews from the 2012 LCT3 production.
So in case you missed it (and most people did, since LCT3 doesn’t seat that many folks), this is your chance.
And THIS is your chance to see it for free!
I’m giving away two tickets to this Broadway Pulitzer Prize winning drama starring Josh Radnor and Gretchen Mol to one lucky reader.
And here’s how you win:
Do you think that Pulitzer Prize plays should get guaranteed Broadway productions? Is it important that they are seen on the theater’s biggest stage so that they are done in more places around the world? Or does it matter? Should Broadway be the commercial place it is, and not have an obligation to be a “national theater,” if you will?
Give me your op-ed in the comments below and one of you will win two tickets to see Disgraced!
