Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre is offering $30 student rush tickets for the final two weeks of Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo: Homelife & The Zoo Story. The discounted tickets will be sold at the box office on the day of each performance with a valid student ID.
Edward Albee’s At Home at the Zoo is an evening of two Edward Albee plays (Homelife and The Zoo Story) directed by Drama Desk Award winner Lila Neugebauer (Everybody, The Wolves). The acclaimed production has been extended twice and is running through March 25 in the theatre's Irene Diamond Stage. Performances began January 30.
The cast is made up of Tony Award winner Katie Finneran (Noises Off; Promises, Promises), Tony winner and House star Robert Sean Leonard (The Invention of Love), and Emmy nominee Paul Sparks (House of Cards, Boardwalk Empire).
In act one, Albee’s play Homelife, we meet Peter and his wife, who live a comfortable but unhappy bourgeois existence. In the second act, The Zoo Story, Peter’s life is changed by the arrival of a persistent stranger in Central Park.
The production is in honor of former resident playwright Albee, who passed away in 2016.
