The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to Application Pending Off Broadway!
About ten years ago, before I was even thinking about getting married, my neighbor gave me some very important advice. He stopped me on the elevator one morning, with his hand wrapped around his young daughters as they began the trek to school . . . “Never sell your apartment, Ken.”
“Why?” I wondered. Was it the view? Was it the circular driveway? Was it our awesome doormen James and Juandy?
“This apartment is zoned for PS 199 – one of the really good public schools in the city. So if you ever have a kid, you won’t have to go through that application madness.”
Ever since then I’ve been frightened about the high stakes world of private school admissions in New York City. And, whenever there is something high stakes, it means it will also make great drama.
First came a documentary called Nursery University (which features a couple of cameos of folks from the Broadway world, actually) and now comes a brand new Off Broadway play.
It’s called Application Pending and it starts performances on January 26th at The Westside Theater.
And we’ve got two tickets to giveaway! (And if you’re a parent and you’re paying private school tuition prices, then the freebies will come in handy!)
Here’s how you win:
Imagine you are the admissions officer at the most prestigious school in the
city nation world. Through the powers of time travel and fertility drugs, three special students are up for the final slot in the next school year. They are:
1 – The child of Bill/Hillary Clinton (Yep, somehow he and Hil popped out another one)
2 – The child of Bill/Melinda Gates
3 – The child of Mother Teresa/???.
Which one would you admit and why? Comment below your answer and you could win admission to Application Pending.
