I'm happy to pass along a blog discount for the new Adam Rapp play Essential Self-Defense, good for the first month of performances March 15th through April 15th.
Mention code EDBL and tickets are reduced to $40 as long as you order before March 28th.
Voice: call Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200 (Noon-8pm daily)
In Person: Visit the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 W 42nd Street (Noon-8pm daily)
As always, students can rush the show for a mere $15 with a valid student ID, one ticket per person, starting one hour before each showtime. And if you're not a student but you're under 30, you can take advantage of the Playwrights Horizon HOTTIX program, detailed here, and see the play for $20.
Why am I posting this? I get comped into the show in exchange for blogging the discount offer, but in the interest of full disclosure let me tell you that I already have a season flex pass to Playwrights Horizons. I would have been able to see it anyhow without having to crack open my wallet again. I'm posting because the question I most get in my inbox is how I can afford to see so many shows, and part of the answer is discounts and deals like this one. I'm posting because this play features Doubt's Heather Goldenhersh and Paul Sparks from Landscape of the Body. I'm posting because Adam Rapp, Pulitzer nominated last year for Red Light Winter, is a young playwright with his own distinctive voice and style and I want to support that. Don't you?
