The award-winning Cygnet Theatre Company is in the middle of an outstanding season of plays, showing once again why they're San Diego's fastest-growing theater group. Now you can get two tickets to any of this season's last three productions, for one low price. Use both tickets for one production, or use each separately to see any two shows -- the choice is yours. In Jordan Harrison's darkly appealing modern fairy tale Maple and Vine, two stressed-out urbanites trade their iPhones and mocha lattes for life in a community that meticulously recreates the clipped lawns and crisp social mores of the year 1955. Then there's the eight-time Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening, in which an electrifying score by Duncan Sheik punctuates an intoxicating story of youth and sexuality that is sure to awaken passion in your heart. Closing out the season is The Motherf**ker With the Hat. This unromantically romantic comedy, a hit on Broadway, is set smack in the middle of New York's gritty streets and filled with hilarity, irreverence and a lot of heart. Learn More

Excellent performance! The 4-person cast is amongst the best of ever seen perform this classic. Tennessee Williams is one of my favorite writers, but for those of you not familiar with him, you may want to read a play summary beforehand (he is not a "happy family" kind of writer). The seats from Goldstar were excellent -- 2nd row.
The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams' most deeply personal and haunting play. Amanda Wingfield, a faded Southern belle, holds on tight to her two children. She pushes them to be more successful—in life and love. When her son Tom brings home a gentleman caller, his sister Laura is given hope. Their chance meeting becomes one of the sweetest and most heartbreaking stories ever told. Tennessee Williams' masterpiece is a touching tale of lost dreams, family bonds and survival.
