UPDATE: Our winner is Joseph Hypes of Merced. His lucky number is now 67. Special thanks to Cosmopolitan Tavern and Broadway in Fresno for making this giveaway possible.
ORIGINAL POST: Sometimes it can be hard to take a chance on a musical with which you’re not familiar. Especially a professional production — with corresponding ticket prices.
That might be the case with “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” the 2012 Tony Award winner for best musical, which opens Tuesday, Nov. 28, at the Saroyan Theatre.
But what if you got to go for free?
You can read all about the show in my interview with James Taylor Odom, who plays the leading role(s) in this comic murder romp set in Edwardian England.
And you can enter my ticket giveaway, which is a special prize package: a pair of tickets to the opening night performance, dinner for two at the Cosmopolitan Tavern (conveniently located in the convention center parking lot) and free downtown parking.
To enter, leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite menu item at Cosmo, as the long-time Fresno restaurant is often affectionately called. (If you’ve never eaten there, that’s OK, too; pick something from the dinner menu you’d like to try.)
Deadline to enter is 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 27. Winner selected at random. I’ll be notifying the winner on Monday evening, so be sure to check your email. Please don’t enter if you won’t be able to attend.
