Summer fun at the Young Vic – two shows for £10 each (Joe Turner & Beauty Queen)


Got an email today with what I’d consider a burning hot tip in terms of value on the pound – the Young Vic is selling tickets for Joe Turner’s Come and Gone and Beauty Queen of Leenane as a package for £20 for both. Now, I’d consider this production of Joe Turner flawed, but it’s worth £10, and The Beauty Queen of Leenane is one of the most powerful scripts I’ve ever seen performed, so I’d say this is worth your effort especially if you’re a penny-pinching theater goer like me. I mean, not everyone’s got sixty quid just laying around so you can see All My Sons. Beauty Queen runs July 15-August 21st, and Joe Turner wraps up July 3rd, so you can take a nice long break between shows and still feel like you got your money’s worth. On the other hand, if Joe Turner’s just really not your kettle of fish, the first two weeks of Beauty Queen are £10 all on their lonesome. But buy the deal and support the theater, that’s what I say.

This deal is only available for phone bookings at the Young Vic box office. Call 020 7922 2922 and quote ‘2 for £20’ sayeth the email.
