Black Friday theater sale

Taking a cue from the way retailers drive business on the day after Thanksgiving, two South Florida theaters are offering special discounted tickets.

TorturePlantation's Mosaic Theatre is doing so well with its production of Christopher Durang's satirical Why Torture Is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them that it has added late Sunday shows at 7 p.m. Nov. 29 and Dec. 6; regular performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 3 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, and the show runs through Dec. 13.  You can get $5 off the usual ticket price -- which is $37 for adults, 31 for seniors 65 and up, $15 for students -- if you order from now through midnight Friday.  Call the box office at 954-577-8243 or visit the Mosaic web site and use the promo code Black Friday. The show, a contemplation of America's love affair with violence, is chock-full of sly performances, particularly from Barbara Bradshaw, Dave Corey and Erik Fabregat.  Mosaic performs in the American Heritage School's Center for the Performing Arts, 12200 W. Broward Blvd., Bldg. 3000.

Irene00_xmas_mds_ho Actors' Playhousein Coral Gables hasn't yet opened its production of Sean Grennan and Leah Okimoto's two-character musical Another Night Before Christmas.  But the theater is offering $20 tickets to some performances of the show if you buy them on Black Friday.  Carbonell Award winners Irene Adjan and Ken Clement star in the show about a lonely social worker and a Santa-like homeless guy. 

The show begins previews Dec. 2, opens Dec. 4 and runs through Dec. 27 in the Balcony Theatre in the Miracle Theatre, 280 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables. Regular performances are 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, with an additional matinee Dec. 9 and no show on Christmas Eve. Call 305-444-9293 or visit the box office Friday to get the discounted tickets.
