The final dress rehearsal of A Raisin in the Sun, a Pay What You Can performance, will be held on Wednesday, March 6 at 8pm with all proceeds benefiting the African American Museum in Philadelphia.
See the news release below. If you have questions, call the box office at[masked]-1122.
Here is the way it works. You can not purchase your tickets online in advance for this rehearsal performance. You purchase your ticket at the box office that evening (they do not give you a ticket with an assigned seat), then you get in line. Suggested amount is $20 and you put your CASH in a donation envelope; then they give you a ticket, assuming there are still seats. Suggest you get your tickets an hour before - so by 7pm - or earlier if the box office is open earlier. Last time, they sold out 20 minutes before the show and those who arrived after that date were disappointed. Seating is first in, so if you want the choice of best seats, you then get in line in front of the door when it forms.
Please be advised that I am not able to get your tickets in advance for you, can not hold them for you, nor save you a seat. If we stand in line together (with our tickets in hand) we can enter together and sit together, if that is your preference.
If you want to meet the others, look for my Meetup Sign.
Arden Theatre Company continues its 25th Anniversary season with A Raisin in the Sun.
On the F. Otto Haas Stage March 7 - April 21, 2013
In Chicago’s South Side in 1959, a life insurance check sent to the Younger’s home arrives with the promise of change. This African American family then considers buying a house in the all-white Clybourne Park, but conflicting aspirations and a neighborhood’s intolerance threaten the dream’s reality. Walter Dallas (The Piano Lesson, Blue Door) directs this classic drama that paved the way for the African American voice to be heard on stage.
CASH ONLY, PAY WHAT YOU CAN AT THE DOOR, OPEN SEATING
We can meet for drinks or a lite bite before the performance, so just let me know to make this happen. E-mail me directly or post a note on the site.
