Theater Fanatic Theater Quiz Contest #1

Welcome to our contest! Our host, Andrew Shaifer is going to present brief excerpts from five wonderful theater productions than began on the New York Off or Off-Off Broadway stage. Your task is to choose for one of the four suggestions. If you answer incorrectly you might meet an interesting character. If you answer correctly, you will move on to the next question. There are hints, so use them. If you answer all five questions correctly and submit your email, you will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to an Off or Off-Off Broadway for the following month. For more information, regarding the rules for this contest, please read below.


This is a monthly contest that begins on the first day of every month. When you successfully play the contest and guess all five answers correctly, you must submit your email on the available form. Your email would be put into a drawing for two tickets to an Off-Broadway or Off-Off Broadway show. The value of these tickets would be no less than $18.00 and no more than $75.00 each. The name of the show will be posted on the first of each month. Only one email per person will be accepted. Good luck.
