Giveaway: Mike Birbiglia’s The New One is Coming to National Theatre


Here’s one for the grown-ups! Mike Birbiglia, the stand-up comedian/actor/writer/director is coming to National Theatre next Tuesday, September 24 through Sunday, September 29. And I’ve got a pair of tickets for it to giveaway to one lucky KFDC reader!

Here’s more about Mike Birbiglia’s The New One:

He’s made you laugh in Sleepwalk With Me (it was a play presented by Nathan Lane, then a movie, THEN a book), My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and “Thank God for Jokes.” (He was also really funny in that one season of “Orange is the New Black.” And in “Billions.” And “Broad City.”) Now he’s direct from Broadway, telling a new story in a new way with the same heart and humor we’ve come to expect. Lin-Manuel Miranda called THE NEW ONE “as perfect a night as you’re gonna get.” Do not miss THE NEW ONE. Some people say it’s his best one. (It was John Mulaney. Also Vogue.)

Run time is approximately 1 hour, 20 minutes with no intermission. It’s recommended for ages 13 and up, but I recommend making this a date night or evening out with friends. 🙂

Ticket Giveaway: InterAct Story Theatre Presents “Bobtail Bong Bong: A Monkey’s Tale”


InterAct Story Theatre is kicking off a new season of family entertainment in Silver Spring with an interactive theater experience — and a chance to win tickets to be a part of it!

Bobtail Bong Bong: A Monkey’s Tale is a world premiere play created especially for early childhood audiences. In this unique, interactive forum theatre experience for children (and the grownups who love them), kids call the shots and make the choices — and the characters try out their ideas to see if they work!

Bob the Monkey is the smartest monkey in the land, and they want everyone to know it! Bob the Monkey wants what they want and they want it NOW! But…why is everyone mad at Bob? Bob didn’t do anything! In this interactive forum theatre experience for kids and families, audiences follow Bob’s madcap misadventures and help Bob figure out where they went wrong and got in trouble monkeying around. Led by InterAct’s Artistic Director Ali Oliver-Krueger, audience members make suggestions about how Bob could do things differently, and watch Bob and friends role play out their ideas. Can Bob flip the script and turn things around? Can Bob make things better by making better choices? Does it work? What happens next?

Bobtail Bong Bong: A Monkey’s Tale runs September 20-28 at Montgomery College Cultural Arts Center in Silver Spring, MD. Tickets are $12.50/adult, $10/age 4-11, free/ages 3 and under. Recommended for ages 4+.

*Go early with your kids for crafts and pre-show activities that opens 30 minute before the performance, and stick around afterwards for a meet-and-greet with the actors — a great time to get autographs, take pictures, and tell them your favorite part of the show! .
