Come On Down!

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
