Let ’em rework the model. No game show can match the riveting design perfection of The Price is Right. It’s an unapologetic celebration of consumerism, populated with games of chance — I still get excited when the yodeling starts on Cliffhanger. I’m not alone on this. We all harbor secret Plinko passions and Showcase Showdown lusts. I dare you to think of a single human who wouldn’t outbid their mother by a dollar if they felt a trip to Paris was at stake. On Wednesday, an interactive touring edition of the game arrives at the Majestic Theater (1925 Elm St.). In honor of the show’s 40-year anniversary, Price is Right Live! promises excess, Big Wheel style. Anyone can sign up to be a potential contestant, but to watch the game play out you’ll need a ticket. They cost $45 to $100 and sell out in nearly every city. It’s a small price to pay for a shot at appliances, vacations and yes, even a ne-e-ew car! Get ’em at attpac.org.
