GIVEAWAY: MICHAEL CERA IN THIS IS OUR YOUTH AT THE CORT THEATRE

ThisisOurYouth

Don’t miss Michael Cera, Kieran Culkin, and Tavi Gevinson in THIS IS OUR YOUTH, Broadway’s smash-hit comedy. The New York Times calls it “sensational, kinetically charged, and full-blooded. Michael Cera is remarkable.” New York Magazine raves, “Michael Cera gives an unforgettable performance of unexpected greatness. He’s a triumph. THIS IS OUR YOUTH is astonishingly fine.”

Kenneth Lonergan’s “game-changing, dazzling comedy” (Entertainment Weekly) follows three wayward young people as they navigate 1982 New York, recreating their broken homes in both their dysfunctional friendships and their bungled attempts at finding love. It reminds us why The New York Times calls Lonergan “arguably the most important American playwright of the last 20 years,” and why Slate calls him “the most potent dramatic voice of his generation.”

We’re giving away a pair of orchestra tickets! To enter to win, just drop us a line here by 11:59pm tonight. The winner will picked at random and notified tomorrow morning. Good luck!
