Book Club field trip—Jonathan Franzen Stage Debut!

Hi Everyone,
I just got this email about a new play by Jonathan Franzen with a special group offer. I read Freedom and liked it, and more Franzen is on my list!

Would anyone be interested in a Book Club field trip on November 1? (see the deal below) We need 10 or more people to get $10 off the ticket price, plus a wine and cheese reception. I will have to collect payment in advance for this, so I set it up on Paypal.

Also, maybe we should consider reading a Franzen book for November!



The work of National Book Award novelist and Pulitzer finalist JONATHAN FRANZEN (Freedom, The Corrections) makes its NYC stage premiere!

Hello, my name is Richard Grasso and I am the Marketing Intern at TRANSPORT GROUP THEATRE COMPANY, a Drama Desk award winning off-broadway theatre company. I am contacting you today to let you know about an exciting new show opening on October 13th at the Duke Theatre on 42nd Street in Times Square titled HOUSE FOR SALE by: JONATHAN FRANZEN.

We are very excited to be offering a special BOOK CLUB NIGHT Special Performance on Thursday November 1st at 7pm. Groups of 10 or more receive a group rate of $45 per ticket (regularly priced at $55). Your ticket purchase will also include a HOUSE FOR SALE study guide and a wine and cheese reception!

The show is being billed as follows.

"OBIE and Drama Desk Award-winning Transport Group brings you the world Premiere of HOUSE FOR SALE, the first of any work by National Book Award novelist and Pulitzer finalist JONATHAN FRANZEN (FREEDOM, THE CORRECTIONS) to be presented on stage. Gorgeously conceived into theatrical terms by internationally acclaimed director DANIEL FISH (The Chocolate Factory's A SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I'LL NEVER DO AGAIN), HOUSE FOR SALE follows Franzen to his childhood home in Missouri as he prepares to put it on the market following his mother's passing. In the process, he is immersed in memories of his childhood, growing up in a place he once cherished. Exploring ideas of change, loss, and the value of the "quintessential American Dream," HOUSE FOR SALE is a daring exploration of both the merging of art forms as well as the very essence of wrestling with one's past."

I thank you very much for your time and hope that your group will be able to witness and enjoy this exciting NYC Theatrical Event!
