One of the most exciting things about living in NYC is the vibrant arts scene we all get to enjoy. Persoanlly, knowing I had this community at the tips of my fingers is one of the things that inspired me the most to move to New York City post-college.

Part of that vibrant art scene is THE FROG AND PEACH THEATRE CO, and I've got a pair of tickets to giveaway to their version of MACBETH, one of Shakespeare's most popular tragedies!

To enter, just fill out the Google form below. I'll be attending the show myself, courtesy of the theater, so expect a full review from my date for the evening, Alan Danzis. (He loves Shakespeare, so trust me, it will be much better coming from him.)

MACBETH
APRIL 15 - MAY 9, 2010
THE WEST END THEATRE
The Church of St. Paul & St. Andrew
263 West 86th Street, 2nd Fl. --wheelchair accessible
Directed by LYNNEA BENSON

Lord & Lady Macbeth are very much in love-- the envy of the Scottish nobility. He's an extraordinary warrior who's tough, witty, and honorable. She's his lovely, charming, soul mate who wants what's best for him. MACBETH is the story of how they lose their souls, in haunting, blood-spattered detail.

Fueled by ambition, Macbeth performs unspeakable acts when three strange and beautiful Witches appear with promises of greatness. One murder leads to another; and another, and still more in this shockingly modern tale of brutality, eroticism, and the supernatural.

*Macbeth contains brief nudity and portrays acts of extreme violence.
