It’s a hot ticket for all theater lovers, but especially the LGBTQ crowd…the Seattle Rep’s current production of Doug Wright’s “I Am My Own Wife” starring Nick Garrison has special appeal to the gay community. The true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, the German transvestite who lived through the Nazi and Communist regimes, it’s a one man tour de force for Mr. Garrison and a must see theater production. The Rep has extended the run of “Wife” for an extra week; it now runs through March 10, 2012 and a few tickets still remain. Get them here.

AND, Seattle Gay Scene has  TWO pairs of tickets to give away to “I Am My Own Wife” for its final week of performances! All you have to do, is play a little game…the first two people to respond will each win a pair of tickets to any performance from this SUNDAY, March 4th through the following Saturday, March 10th afternoon matinee, (Not available for the closing night performance that night…)

Send your answers to the following question to…First two CORRECT answers win! (Employees of SGS and the Seattle Rep are not eligible…) Here we go!

Playwright Doug Wright won the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize for “I Am My Own Wife”. He also earned a Tony nomination for “Best Book of a Musical” for his work on the hit Broadway musical, “Grey Gardens” based on the documentary about the Beales, the notorious mother/daughter duo who lived in a ruin of a mansion on Long Island and who were relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Mr. Wright lost that Tony Award to the book of ANOTHER hot musical that recently had its Northwest premiere in Seattle, and will make a return engagement in April. What was the name of the Broadway musical that won the Tony for “Best Book of a Musical”  in 2007?
