Cheapskates' Guide to Theater: Pay-What-You-Can Night for Giant


Here at Mixmaster we love two things: 1.) the Arts, and 2.) bargains. Next Wednesday you better buy a cowgirl hat and hold the hell on to it because those two things are colliding. It's gonna be big.

Actually, it's going to be Giant.

Dallas Theater Center's highly-anticipated stage adaptation of Edna Ferber's novel Giant, operates on a pay-what-you-can scale for one, magical night on Wednesday, January 18.

Are your pockets as empty as the Texas desert? No worries. Considered a soft opening, you'll be the first to see the large-scale musical (which boasts a budget of more than $1,000,000 bucks) on this here Texas stage for only a slight offering. The cast has been shipped in from New York, the set is an amazing work of art, and you will see it all from the cheap seats! Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning (Thursday, January 12) at 10 a.m. -- should you miss the online option, you'll have a last-minute chance at the box office on cheap seats day, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Check out Elaine Liner's Q&A with set director Allen Moyer here.
