With the holiday season creeping up, tickets to attend a live performance of comedy, opera, jazz, blues, Broadway, rock and family and kids’ events may be the best gift ever. A present of Michael Bolton, Dickey Betts, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Berlioz at the Met Live in HD, Pauly Shore, Christine Ebersole, Stephen Sondheim (up-close-and-personal), Steve Tyrell, The Little Mermaid, Johnny Winter, the Blues Brothers Revue and dozens more choices may be just the ticket for the most appreciated gift this holiday season. Shopping local also helps stimulate the local economy. Buying tickets online for The Ridgefield Playhouse at ridgefieldplayhouse.org and choosing the best seats for family, friends and colleagues could not be easier. Pairing show tickets with a gift certificate for a pre-show dinner at one of Ridgefield’s restaurants will make the gift even more special.
January will bring Dickey Betts, The Machine’s Pink Floyd, Blood Sweat & Tears, and the Cast of Beatlemania to Ridgefield. For opera buffs who relish staying close to home in the winter months, Berlioz’s Les Troyens and Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda will delight. A family gift to be redeemed in February can entertain and educate when Bully is presented by filmmaker Lee Hirsch. Ladies of Laughter Jane Condon and her pals will make ‘em laugh in February. Speaking of ladies, heartthrob Michael Bolton is this year’s Valentine’s Day romantic Gala star! Jerry Springer, Average White Band, Blue Öyster Cult and Britain’s National Theatre Live will provide more inspiration. For those who want to make it even easier, Playhouse gift cards in any denomination (from $5 stocking stuffers to $5,000 tribute donations) may be redeemed for Playhouse events, movies and concession treats.
