Ticket Giveaway: Beauty and the Beast

by Stephen Becker 8 Jul 2010 8:07 AM

Last week we gave away a few pairs of tickets to the touring production of Beauty and the Beast, which touches down at the Winspear Opera House on Tuesday. And as luck would have it, we’ve got a few more tickets to give away. But we’re going to make you work a bit.

The first three people who e-mail me ([email protected]) with “Beauty” in the subject line and the answer to the following trivia question win a pair of tickets to the July 13 performance:

Question: “The 1991 film version of Beauty and the Beast was nominated for six Academy Awards, but it was impossible for the film to actually win six Oscars. Why?”

UPDATE: All the tickets are gone, thanks to all of you who sent in the correct answer, which is: The film had three songs nominated in the best song category, and only one of them could win.
