An unprecedented offer from ArtsBoston and local theatres
In a move that's startling in both its generosity and marketing savvy, ArtsBoston has arranged for twelve local theatres to offer free tickets to North Shore Music Theatre subscribers who were stiffed, as it were, by that theatre's sudden bankruptcy. Patrons angry at the NSMT's decision to stage High School Musical 2 rather than A Christmas Carol last year can even take their pick of two different Carols next winter - at either the New Rep (at left) or the Hanover Theatre. Participating companies include Gloucester Stage, The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, Huntington Theatre Company, The Lyric Stage Company of Boston, Merrimack Repertory Theatre, New Repertory Theatre, Ogunquit Playhouse, Reagle Players, Seacoast Repertory Theatre, SpeakEasy Stage Company, Stoneham Theatre, and the American Repertory Theatre. Details are here.
