Dallas — A month ago we told you about Industry Night for the national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder at AT&T Performing Arts Center's Winspear Opera House. Now we have more news to add, including that the Tony Award the show won for Best Musical is traveling with the tour and you can have a photo with it.
First a reminder that Industry Night, presented by ATTPAC and TheaterJones, is 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 23 and the tickets are discounted to $30 or $60, depending on seating. That's the beginning of the second week of the tour, which opens ATTPAC's 2016-17 Broadway Series. The show runs for two weeks, Aug. 16-28.
More info about this Industry Night is below, but the exciting new information is that it will be first of these Industry Nights for ATTPAC's Broadway Series. The dates for the next two tours—Rent (Sept. 20-Oct. 2) and The Book of Mormon (Dec. 20-31)—are set. Each is on the second Tuesday of the run (Sept. 27 for Rent and Dec. 27 for Mormon). If you buy tickets for the Gentleman's Guide Industry Night, you'll have early access to both.
Rent will have discounted tickets ($35 or $60), and while Mormon won't be discounted, there are Dress Circle seats reserved ($75). The Mormon tickets will be available before single tickets go on sale to the general public at the end of August, so attending the Gentleman's Guide Industry Night will be your chance to nab them.
At all events, the Industry Night includes VIP lanyards, party/reception at intermission and after the performance with members of the cast, ticket giveaways, specialty cocktails and more.
Here's new info about the Gentleman's Guide event:
The tour is traveling with the show's 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, and you'll have a chance to have your photo taken with it for no charge.
Signature cocktails (for purchase) are:
- “Full Monty” (Vodka Martini)
- “GGLAM” (Gin based cocktail)
- “Final Warning” (whiskey sour)
Gentleman’s Guide tells the story of Monty, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress, his fiancée and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea. The Hollywood Reporter raves, “Gentleman’s Guide restores our faith in musical comedy.”
Industry night is technically for anyone who works in any capacity in the performing arts (performers, directors, designers, tech crew, box office, hospitality, etc.). But really, it's for anyone who buys a ticket through the link below. You're reading this on our site, right? So you care about the arts.
