Some of the most exciting plays to see are the ones dealing with timely subjects. Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays is a showcase of short plays, both comedic and dramatic, about same-sex marriage. The production features an A-list roster of writers, including Moises Kaufman and Neil Labute. The impressive cast features Beth Leavel, Craig Bierko, Richard Thomas, Harriet Harris, and Mark Consuelos. Stage Rush is giving away a pair of tickets to this new theatrical event.

reasons to be pretty
At a time in our culture when the man-boy is king at the box office, it seems to be the hip thing to discover what makes a man like this and what does it take for him to shake the first part of that moniker. reasons to be pretty is Neil LaBute’s take on the man boy, and how to smack the child right out of him (perhaps literally).
The student rush policy for reasons to be pretty states that the tickets go on sale two hours prior to the performance. I arrived at the Lyceum Theatre at 5 p.m., book in hand, ready to wait an hour for tickets to be released (hoping I’d be permitted to wait in the lobby instead of under the threatening clouds). I went to the ticket window to check that there were rush tickets available for the performance and the attendant surprisingly initiated the transaction – an hour early. That’s not the policy, but I’m certainly not going to complain. I was in and out, $26.50 third row balcony seat in hand. That’s the third tier in the Lyceum, which is so high and steep that it makes my palms sweat. The seats weren’t bad, but for a play that’s been playing to 42 percent attendance for the past three weeks, I’d have thought rush seats would have been closer. However, the producers seem quite discount friendly; in addition to the student rush policy, there are show promoters around Times Square offering $35-ticket coupons to the production. Read more
