Theatre lovers haven’t been left out of the cyber super sales weekend.
On Monday, November 28th, for one day only, Signature Theatre is offering 50% off all tickets to their 2011/12 season for upcoming productions of the world premiere rock musical Brother Russia, the Tony Award®-winning God of Carnage, the cult classic musical Xanadu, and the world premiere of the evocative drama Really Really. Holiday shoppers can also receive 50% off single tickets to the world premiere musical A Second Chance and the musical comedy phenomenon Hairspray for performances through December 11th only. To take advantage of this one-day holiday offer, ticket buyers must use the code word: CYBER on Monday. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Signature Box Office (703/820-9771).
Amazon has extended their Black Friday sales, with super low prices on books and CDs. For example, if Signature’s mainstage musical has you in a Hairspray mood, Amazon has the 2009 Deluxe Edition of the movie with John Travolta in Edna’s heels for just $5.98.
By the way, did you know that if you click through to Amazon using the ad in our sidebar, DC Theatre Scene receives a small portion of your purchase price?
Finally, a gift sure to please all performers – and, come to think of it, any one who needs to memorize lines. It’s called Scene Partner, a powerful iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch® app designed to help actors memorize lines. It is available until Monday night for just $2.99 (40% off). The innovative tool merges text to speech software, voice recording and advanced algorithms to provide a unique and innovative tool for actors. Tom Cruise, the American Theater Wing (producers of the Tony Awards) and the Public Theater in NYC all tweeted about Scene Partner.
It’s all made possible by MyTheatreApps.com which offers a library of downloadable scripts in the public domain, and allows customers the chance to stock up on additional voices to add variety to their script playback or download any of Shakespeare’s plays – all for half off. (99 cents). The sale ends Monday, Nov 28th at midnight.
