Some information about the show, from the Blumenthal’s website:

A woman’s wardrobe often serves as the way she remembers her life—and every woman will appreciate the sweet and often saucy way the women of LOVE, LOSS AND WHAT I WORE use clothing to tell the stories of their lives.
Direct from New York and based on the book by Nora and Delia Ephron, this charming and poignant comedy, told through a series of intimate stories by a stellar cast of women, delivers a lot of laughs and a few tears as it takes you on a moving and often hilarious journey through the lives of women, told through the clothing and accessories that trigger important memories.

If you remember the pale green, gauzy, peasant skirt you wore the day your husband proposed, or the navy blue power suit you donned for the interview that got you the ‘big job’, don’t miss this show that celebrates women and what we wore when we were having the times of our lives.

In honor of the 4th of July, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center is offering tickets to some upcoming shows for just $17.76. Available right now are $17.76 seats to see Elvis Costello, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Amy Lavere.

Don’t expect great seats, but the price can’t be beat. In fact, despite my resolution to cut back on my concert habit, I just purchased $17.76 tickets to the Elvis Costello show. Couldn’t help myself.

The deal lasts until the tickets sell out or midnight July 4th.

Buy tickets to Spring Awakening for just $20. See it at the Belk Theater on Sunday, March 13th, 2011, at 7pm. The tickets are for Mezzanine and Balcony 1 tickets, which are otherwise $54.50 and $44.50.

Here’s what the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center says about it:

SPRING AWAKENING launched the career of Lea Michele from GLEE and, like that show, focuses on the trials and tribulations of teens. It’s a darker, more dramatic take but like GLEE, this show rocks. (It’s also pretty steamy, so if adult language and content are a concern, you might want to pass.) But if you like great rock music and a little heat, don’t miss this chance to see a full-scale Broadway production for only $20.

Get a “Buddy Pack” of 4 tickets to Young Frankenstein for $129. These tickets are for balcony 1 seats on March 15th, 17th, and 20th (evening) at Belk Theater. Those tickets go for $49.50 a piece, so according to my very complicated calculations which I did with my infallible calculator, you would save $17.25 for each ticket. Or a grand total of $69. I’m sure service fees apply cause they always do.

Based on the Oscar-nominated smash hit 1974 film, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is the wickedly inspired re-imagining of the Mary Shelley classic from the comic genius of Mel Brooks. When Frederick Frankenstein, an esteemed New York brain surgeon and professor, inherits a castle and laboratory in Transylvania from his grandfather, deranged genius Victor Von Frankenstein, he faces a dilemma. Does he continue to run from his family’s tortured past or does he stay in Transylvania to carry on his grandfather’s mad experiments reanimating the dead and, in the process, fall in love with his sexy lab assistant Inga?

Unfolding in the forbidding Castle Frankenstein and the foggy moors of Transylvania Heights, the show’s raucous score includes “The Transylvania Mania,” “He Vas My Boyfriend” and the unforgettable treatment of Irving Berlin’s “Puttin’ On the Ritz.”

It’s a life lived out loud in this exhilarating new musical about “The First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald. This theatrical event weaves myth, memory and music as it tells the uplifting and poignant story of one of the greatest jazz/pop vocalists of 20th century music.

Featuring more than a dozen of her most famous hits, including “A Tisket, A Tasket,” “How High the Moon,” “That Old Black Magic” and “They Can’t Take that Away from Me,” this swinging new musical invites audiences to fall in love all over again with the magic and soul of Ella Fitzgerald.
