Fun Play 'Scapin' from Constellation Theater on 14th St. - dinner before

"A vicarious lesson in the fine art of comic madness" —The New York Times
We are going to a preview production of Scapin from the Constellation Theater - I saw this play growing up, on Broadway with the great Jim Dale (now the voice of the Harry Potter books), and it's a lot of fun. The character originally comes from Moliere - this production has been adapted by actor/comedian extraordinaire Bill Irwin. Constellation usually does a good job with stuff like this. The show starts at 8:30 so we will do dinner before.

*** Tickets. You have two choices. The easiest way - and the one that guarantees you get in - is to go to their website here. You click on Friday, January 17 at 8:30 pm. That will take you to Select Your Own Seats. You click on the Yellow area and your seat choices will come up.  I took B-302. The ticket will say $15 but when you go to checkout, you put in GROUP where it asks for a code and it will go down to $10 (they add $3 at the end). That's still a very good deal. Again, here is that link. It looks like they have about 25 tickets available this way. ***

Your second option is on the night of the show they will have some tickets for Pay What You Can an hour before the start, at 7:30.  There is no guarantee here - people may line up early and then you will miss some of our social dinner, or not even get a ticket. But it is an option that could cost less.

We will be in the heart of all the cool new restaurants, so we'll pick a reasonable one to go to before and maybe even find a gallery opening. Masa 14 which is next door has a great Happy Hour that goes until 7 if we want to meet there first.

Here is a description of the play:
In this wild physical comedy, the crafty Scapin, servant to the household of Geronte, jumps into the story as he first promises to help in affairs of his neighbor’s son, Octave, then to aid in those of his own charge, Leander (Geronte’s son).  Both young men have fallen in love with unlikely, and penniless beauties (Hyacinth and Zerbinette), and both need money to help solve their dilemmas.  Scapin knows a good ruse will always win the day and he drafts Sylvestre, Octave’s servant, into his schemes.  Brimming with zany characters and improvisation, this play is an uproarious romp of hugely theatrical proportions.

    I enjoyed meeting people at the happy hour and having a delicious burger at Black and Orange.

    To recap, we'll start gathering at 6:30 upstairs at Masa 14. Their excellent Happy Hour (with food deals as well) goes until 7. Next door, remaining PWYC tickets will go on sale at 7:30, an hour before the show. To be safe, if you don't have a ticket, get in line - or at least check it out - by 6:30. If we go anywhere else later on, we will post it and you can always text me at 703.338.7494. But first check Masa - hopefully we can secure an area.

    • Ronn

      yes, unless you know the area very well, then by all means metro. u street is just a few blocks away.

    For those interested, let's meet for a drink at the upstairs bar of very cool Masa 14 [masked]th st) at around 6:30. ($4 HH goes to 7pm.) At around 7:20, we'll most likely head to Black & Orange [masked]th St.) for dinner. My # is[masked]

    How big a line will there likely be for PWYC tickets? Would I have to get there far in advance?

    January 16, 2014

    • Ronn

      Have no idea - sorry. We can try to post what the situation looks like at around 6:30 - remaining tickets go on sale at 7:30.

      January 16, 2014

    • Kurt

      I could meet y'all at 7 for dinner, I have other options if the line looks long. I doubt it will be.

      January 16, 2014

  • Ronn

    I see one advanced sale-seat still available. They will then sell a few more PWYC tickets starting at 7:30.
