Item Description

Win two tickets to one of the most highly anticipated shows of the fall Off-Broadway season, The Portuguese Kid - plus meet star Jason Alexander!

About The Portuguese Kid:

This feisty romantic comedy comes from playwright/director John Patrick Shanley, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Doubt and Outside Mullingar, and the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Moonstruck.  The production is part of Manhattan Theatre Club's current season.

SYNOPSIS: In Providence, Rhode Island, habitually widowed Atalanta pays a visit to her second-rate lawyer Barry Dragonetti. Intending to settle her latest husband’s affairs, this larger-than-life Greek tightwad quickly becomes a nightmare for her cheesy, self-aggrandizing attorney. Add Barry’s impossible Croatian mother, a dash of current politics and a couple of opportunistic young lovers, and you have in hand a recipe for comic combustion.
