Win tickets to ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’


Edward Albee’s 1962 drama “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is a great American play — and, for the first time in more than 30 years, you’ll get a chance to see it in the Fresno area. The Artists’ Repertory Theatre production, directed by Brad Myers, opens Friday at the California Arts Academy’s Severance Theatre. I’m giving away two pairs of tickets to the opening weekend performances. If you win, you can choose between the 8 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday or 2 p.m. Sunday shows.

To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: What is your favorite Brad Myers-directed production from his long and illustrious tenure on the Fresno theater scene? (If you aren’t familiar enough with his body of work to answer, no worries: just say his “Assassins” at Fresno State, one of my favorites.)

Deadline to enter is 10 a.m. Friday. Please don’t enter more than once. I’ll be informing our winners by email on Friday at 10, so keep a watch on your inbox. If I haven’t heard from a winner by noon Friday, I reserve the right to pick another. You’ll be able to pick up your tickets at the theater box office. Rules are on the jump.

Only readers who submit a comment on this post are eligible. Winners will be picked at random. Recipients will be notified by e-mail at the end of each giveaway period. No substitutions or transfer of winners/prizes. Prizes are not redeemable for cash. Some prizes may have due dates for redemption/use.

I have had season tickets to CSUF theatre since about 1979. I am looking forward to this one at Cal Arts. I enjoyed Urinetown a few seasons back at CSUF. For the past few years I have upgraded my tickets at CSUF from two to four to share with friends.

My favorite was Blood Brothers (which also starred Leslie Martin) because it brought back musicals to the Fresno State theater stage.

I loved the production Brad Meyers directed at the 2nd Space of “The 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee.” Very fun, and both casts were good.
