Ticket Giveaway to On the Town #AHelluvaMusical

I here at NRNW Central have a fondness for the currently-running On the Town considering it is the best-damn production of the show my eyes have ever seen. And I’m not the only one…ask its four Tony nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical and Tony Yazbeck for Best Leading Actor in a Musical (for being all dance-y and feelzy and stuffs). And in case you are wondering, yes…I am still crying into my pillow every night that Alysha Umphress is Tony nomination-less after her Hildy OWNED everything in the show, including my heart 4ever and 5ever.


Also, dancing sailors and a naive, hilarious Jay Armstrong Johnson. See? What’s not to love?!

And here is where you all come into play…maybe you have seen On the Town before and you would like to see it again. Or maybe you have entered the TodayTix lottery 891 times, only to lose performance-in and performance-out (oh, I know what that feels like). Either way, I have a pair of tickets for giveaway to the June 9th performance of On the Town - that is sanscript for the first performance after the Tony Awards ceremony!!! - and you are invited to participate in a little ol’ Twitter contest.

Here’s the Step-By-Step (or the Shuffle-Ball-Change) on how to enter:

(1) Clear Your Schedule and Set the DVR: The tickets are only good on Tuesday, June 9th at 7:00pm.

(2) Follow me at @NRNWTheater and RT this tweet here.

(3) For an additional entry, tweet me your favorite dance-sequence that you have ever seen in a musical, whether it was on-stage or televised (movie-ised?). Maybe it was from On the Town. Maybe it was from An American in Paris. Maybe it from a musical that debuted in-between the two!

(4) Only 1 RT and 1 ‘Dance-Sequence’ Tweet will qualify as an entry, but feel free to enter however many times you would like. Maybe one of your friends will see it, enter and take you should he/she win. And if he/she does not in that case, you need new friends.

EDITED: Thanks to everyone who participated, I want to give you all a nice, big hug! Congrats to @Randigoblue for being our lucky prize winner. E-mail me here with your full name and I will provide additional instructions on how to claim your prize.

The contest will wrap on Monday, June 1st, at 11:59pm eastern time. I’ll pick one winner at random out of all the entrants to receive a pair of tickets and contact him/her via a direct message on Twitter with further instructions. Have fun and good luck! And remember, if you ever see a man dressed like a sailor and pirouetting all over the place, hold him tight and don’t let go...they are a rare, endangered species that we all would like to see more of.
