WIN TICKETS TO SEE JAKE GYLLENHAAL IN ‘SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE’ FROM PLAY-BY-PLAY (SPONSORED)

Ever wanted to mingle with the upper crust of Manhattan society, but couldn’t afford a ticket to [insert fancy thing]? When it comes to the theatre, Play-by-Play has you covered. This unique seat-filling service is quite literally “in the business of” scooping up available seats for hot-ticket Broadway and off-Broadway shows and passing them on to you for next to nothing. How nothing? A Play-by-Play membership is just $99/year, and gets you unlimited access to free tickets (up to 2 per show), with a modest $4.50 reservation fee per show. 

But we get it, you want to experience the perks before you commit. Lucky you, Play-by-Play is giving away two orchestra tickets to the April 20th performance of Sondheim and Lapine’s Sunday in the Park with George, starring Hollywood’s very own darling Jake Gyllenhaal. Who knew the guy had a voice with “richly flexible timbre that confidently elicits the most delicate shade of passion and despair?” (The New York Times)

Want to win the tix? All you’ve got to is fill out this form by 11:59pm March 1st to be considered. (Just FYI: joining Play-by-Play when you enter earns you an additional 10 entries.) That’s 10 extra chances to be close to Gyllenhaal, whose “obsessive, intense misfit” character is certain to remind you of why you first fell in love with Donnie Darko.
