퍼블릭시어터가 이영진씨의 연극 '스트레이트 화이트 맨'을 비롯 이번 시즌 연극 첫 공연을 무료로 공개한다.
Continuing The Public Theater’s mission to make theater accessible to all, free tickets will be given out for the first performance of shows in The Public’s 2014-15 downtown season at Astor Place. In partnership with TodayTix, New York’s premiere theater ticket app, the FIRST PERFORMANCE “FREE FOR ALL” initiative expands on Joe Papp’s vision to engage the whole city in the transformative experience of theater that started more than 50 years ago with free Shakespeare in the Park at the Delacorte and has since served more than five million people with over 150 free productions.
First Performance "Free for All" dates:
Father Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 & 3) (Tuesday, October 14)
Straight White Men (Friday, November 7)
Hamilton (Tuesday, January 20)
ToasT (Friday, April 3)
Free tickets will be available via TodayTix mobile lottery, beginning one week before the first preview of each show in the 2014-2015 season.
Winners will be notified by email and push notification between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on the day of the first preview. You must confirm your winning tickets in the TodayTix app within one hour of being notified.
