At the stroke of noon, I hit up www.freenightoftheater.net, hoping to score tickets. Many of the offerings sounded enticing, but the one I had set my sights on was The Light in the Piazza, presented by Theater Three. It’s not often that you get to see a Tony winner gratis. No doubt, you will all be happy to know that I succeeded.
When I checked the site just 20 minutes later, there were only a handful of shows that weren’t sold out. (And now that you are reading this, even THAT’s probably out of date.)
So now that the big ticket grab is mostly over, how do we feel about the concept? Which show did YOU target, and were you able to get it? Or was your Web browser running frustratingly slow today?
UPDATE: All the tickets are gone, folks. And in under an hour!
UPDATE II: If you missed out on tickets, a link has been added to the Free Night of Theater page that allows you to sign up for updates. There’s a chance that more tickets could be made available.
