Giving away tickets to attractions in our own back yard is one of my favorite things to do. So I’d like to do that very thing again. We’ve had great success with previous contests – Dracula and The Kite Runner – both terrific productions at Actors Theatre.
The next give-away is for The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful – a funny spoof of Gothic dramz. Here’s what Actors had to say: A lovelorn werewolf, a campy vampire and an Egyptian princess with a secret greet Lord Edgar’s new bride as she tries to escape the deadly fate of his first wife in this sidesplitting spoof of Gothic melodrama. This madcap menagerie of characters is played by just two actors, in a frightfully funny tale of terror—by the man who invented “Theatre of the Ridiculous”—filled with thrills, laughter and extravagant showmanship.
The production of Irma runs October 5 through October 30.
Here’s what you have to do in order to win: leave a comment on this post, send me an email or message me on Twitter. Tell me why you’re interested in seeing the show. I’ll hold a drawing this weekend so you’ll have adequate time for planning. Please be sure to use your actual email address in the proper comment field so I may get in touch with winners.
Two of you will receive one voucher for two tickets each (an $88 value!) to be used Sunday through Thursday or during Saturday matinees. Valid October 5 through October 17. If you’re not a fancy winner, please consider buying tickets and supporting one of Louisville’s gems.
