I got another Broadway Show for this week, and I still have a couple for Jesus Christ Superstar. Here are the details:
1) CLYBOURNE PARK the Pulitzer Prize-winning new Broadway play by Bruce Norris, at the Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 West 48th Street.
Tickets are available for next week on:
- Monday 3/26 at 8pm
- Tuesday 3/27 at 8pm
Tickets are $35 each - Seats are front Orchestra, Excellent Seats!
In Clybourne Park, which also won the Olivier Award for Best New Play, Norris imagines the history of one of the more important houses in literary history, both before and after it becomes a focal point in Lorraine Hansberry's classic "A Raisin in the Sun." In 1959, the house, which is located in a white neighborhood at 406 Clybourne St. in Chicago, is sold to an African-American family (the Younger family in "A Raisin in the Sun"). Then in 2009 after the neighborhood has changed into an African-American community, the house is sold to a white couple. It is through this prism of property ownership that Norris' lacerating sense of humor dissects race relations and middle class hypocrisies in America.
I still have some tickets left for the following as well:
2) JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR (on Broadway), playing at the Neil Simon Theatre at 250 West 52nd Street between Broadway and 8th Street.
Tickets available for:
- Next Tuesday 3/27 at 7pm
- Next Wednesday 3/28 at 7pm
Tickets are $35 - Seats are also great, in the Orchestra, or front Mezzanine
Description for JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR: The zeal with which Christ's followers are hailing him as the Son of God has become a source of dismay to his disciple Judas Iscariot. Fearing that this tide of religious fervor will provoke brutal repression by the occupying Romans, Judas must make his fateful choice between faith and betrayal.

Let me know if you are interested in either show, for which performance, and for how many people.
