Contest: Win Tickets to Relatively Speaking

Update: The contest is now closed. The winners were picked using a random number generator and have been contacted. Congrats Kristen and Vance and thank you to everybody who entered.

One silver lining to the end of summer is the start of the new Broadway season. Relatively Speaking, an evening of one-act plays by Woody Allen, Ethan Coen, and Elaine May, starts previews on September 20. Each play represents a different branch of the family tree. Coen's Talking Cure deals with the insanity that comes from family. May's George is Dead explores the "hilarity of death." And Allen's Honeymoon Motel takes place on a wedding day. The cast of 15 includes Julie Kavner, Steve Guttenberg, Mark Linn-Baker, and Marlo Thomas.

I'm a Woody Allen fan, so I'm most looking forward to Honeymoon Motel. And I love Rhoda, so I'm also excited to see Kavner aka Brenda Morgenstern onstage. To be entered to win tickets, let me know in the comments which of the one-acts you are most looking forward to and why. I will pick TWO winners at random (each winner will receive a pair of tickets) on Friday, September 16 at 5 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

All seem interesting but yah, I'm probably most looking forward to Woody Allen's Honeymoon Hotel

Kristen said...

I'm excited for all, but definitely most interested in Honeymoon Hotel because I really enjoy Woody Allen's work. Should be very funny. my twitter is @gubbabump


Wendell said...

Most interested in Woody
Allen's play, because I'm a big fan of his work.

I'm most excited about "George is Dead" b/c I think Elaine May is a great talent who sorta got the short end of the stick.

Patrick said...

I'm really thinking Woody Allen is going to win out here. Is it cause we're NYers? Or are we all just that neurotic? He's my pick as well. But then again, all three of these directed by J.T.? How can you lose.

I'm looking most forward to Honeymoon Hotel. Woody Allen is a genius!

Lisa B said...

I'm so excited for "George is Dead" because I'm a huge fan of Elaine May.

Robbie said...

I wish I could choose all three, haha! If I must choose, it has to be Honeymoon Hotel. I really hope I get to see this show.

Talking Cure sounds the most interesting to me - who doesn't love other people's insane family stories? I'm sure the whole show will be great, though!


Wren said...

I'm a huge Woody Allen fan and I'm interested to see if the one act is still his classical style. It'd be very different on stage from in the movies. Honeymoon Motel better meets some expectations.

Elaine May, say the name, and I smile at all the great memories. From when she worked with Mike Nichols, those early years at Univ of Chicago, to her albums ("My son, 'da nurse"), to her films. The woman is gifted. George is Dead, already makes me smile. No doubt, I will be laughing 'til it hurts, when I get to see it.

I like Woody Allen films, but I must see Elaine May's "George is Dead." I love her slyness and understated comedy.

I also love Woody Allen, so I would want to see his play the most. They all sound good, though.
