The History Boys Extends, Along with Special Summer Ticket Offer
On the heels of its historic 6 Tony wins -- capturing more awards than any Broadway production this year, including musicals -- Alan Bennett's The History Boys will now extend until October 1. Additionally, special reduced pricing on tickets for summer performances is currently available.
The celebrated British import, which has perhaps received the most critical acclaim of any recent production on either side of the Atlantic, won Tonys for Best Play,Best Director (Nicholas Hytner), Best Actor (Richard Griffiths), Best Featured Actress (Frances de la Tour, who graciously thanked the backstage team), Best Scenic Design (Bob Crowley, who famously suggested he should have won for his direction of Tarzan instead) and Best Lighting Design (Mark Henderson). Ticket sales for the production have reportedly soared since its win last Sunday, thus the much-anticipated extension until October.
Yet, that hasn't stopped the production from offering up to 45% off regular pricing of tickets. In an offer valid through August 30, 2006, seats for performances (July 4-August 30) are being offered for just $52.50 at Wednesday matinees and $62.50 for Tuesday and Wednesday evening performances. To receive the special pricing, use code HB42PBX.
