ORIGINAL ENTRY: The Beehive is roaring this week when it comes to ticket giveaways. On Monday we let you know about a chance to win tickets to NOCO’s big launch party Thursday at Fulton 55. And this morning we’re starting our giveaway for opening-night tickets for the national tour of “Young Frankenstein” Feb. 14 at the Saroyan Theatre.
To win tickets for “Young Frankenstein,” leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite Mel Brooks title, either a film or live-theater version. What is it about Brooks that makes you laugh? Any funny memories of the first time you watched your personal Brooks favorite?
These are paper tickets, so you’ll need to be able to come down to The Bee’s front lobby by 5 p.m. Feb. 14 to pick them up.
Deadline to enter is 3 p.m. Friday.
I’ll notify the winner via e-mail — so please leave a real e-mail address and please check it. Duplicate entries are not allowed. I reserve the right to pick another winner if you haven’t responded to a notification email in a timely manner. You’re ineligible if you’ve won anything from the Beehive in the past 30 days. Full rules on the jump.
