AWESOME GIVEAWAY: 2 Tickets to Orphans on Broadway

Hold onto your hats. Broadway is getting dark and twisty this Spring. In the new Broadway show Orphans, two orphaned brothers live in their decrepit North Philadelphia row house. They survive by petty thievery and a steady diet of tuna fish and daytime television until the violent older brother decides to kidnap Harold (Alec Baldwin, yes THE Alec Baldwin), a notorious Chicago gangster. Harold soon becomes the force that will forever change their lives.

Written by Lyle Kessler and directed by Daniel Sullivan (Glengarry Glen Ross), Orphans features a critically acclaimed cast including Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma, The Mechanic, and Flash Forward if you can remember that far back) and Tom Sturridge (Being Julia, Like Minds, The Boat That Rocked, and On the Road).

The show features a book by Doug Wright (Pulitzer Prize winner, I Am My Own Wife), lyrics by Amanda  Green (Bring It On: The Musical), and music by Trey Anastasio (Phish) and Amanda Green. Directed by Neil Pepe (Speed-The-Plow) with musical staging by Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys, Memphis), it is based on the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name by S.R. Bindler, produced by Kevin Morris and Bindler.

  7. John Dillinger is pretty intriguing. He was killed coming out of a theatre in Chicago, so that kind of relates to this contest, right?
