Discounted Theater Miscellaneous Tickets
Theater Miscellaneous tickets offer the greatest range possible in the theater experience. Theater's repertoire has grown rapidly to include musicals of every genre, professional dance theaters (each having recognized training institutes), puppet opera, pet shows, comedy routines, and magic. The roster of Theater Miscellaneous tickets available in the coming days boasts of a gut-busting progressive metal onslaught by long-running band Dream Theater, and dance theater performances from backgrounds as distinct as Danish and Dutch to local biggies Alvin Ailey and Pilobolus. Joining them are the great tricks on show at the Comedy Pet Theater, the awe-inspiring illusions of the Spencers, and traditional colorful Chinese marionette shows.
Dream Theater was formed by Rush and Iron Maiden fanatics in Berklee College of Music. John Petrucci (guitarist and songwriter), John Myung (bassist) and Mike Portnoy formed Dream Theater in 1985 and they subsequently dropped out to make a name in progressive metal. Gregory Popovich created the Pet Comedy Theater. Born to circus performers Tamara and Alex Popovich in Russia, Gregory grew up as an excellent juggling act at Moscow Circus Group and later the Ringling Bros Barnum and Bailey Circus.
He developed an affinity for animals and his cast of 15 cats and 10 dogs were once strays that he rescued from animal shelters to start the Comedy Pet Theater in 1992. Wang Jingxian (Director), Xia Rongfeng, Chen Yinghong, Zhang Gong, Lin Xiaojun (all Master Puppeteers), and Chen Zhijie, (Drum Master) are the men behind the Quanzhou Marionette Theater. It showcases Chinese rituals and folk-tales through the ancient puppeteer art. "Modern Day Houdinis" the Spencers are a husband-and-wife magical illusion team that has combined audience participation with one of the biggest illusion rigs around to create a masterpiece of a show. Lee Harris, Jonathan Wolken, Martha Clarke, Robby Barnett, Alison Chase, and Moses Pendleton were pioneers of the intensely physical and borderline contortionist dances of the Pilobolus contemporary theater, while Alvin Ailey has become a symbol of contemporary African American dance success since the famous 92nd Street Y performance in 1958.
The Ailey Company has performed for 23 million people in over 71 countries, with residencies in South Africa, France, Russia, and Cuba. The program won a National Medal of Arts, and boasts of the heavily-viewed Revelations in its repertory. Dream Theater has three Platinum albums out of 12, with 10 million career albums sold. Recipients of the International Magicians of the Year Award, the Spencers have also won Performing Arts Entertainer Award a record six consecutive times.
Live experience is something all the acts have in common. Popovich's Pet Theater is a Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas resident now after touring over 20 countries, while Danish and Netherlands Dance Theater are cultural representatives, along with Ailey's 1962 selection as Kennedy's "Cultural Ambassadors" to the Far East.
Theater as a medium of entertainment is offering exciting opportunities. The ability to woo crowds firsthand and create a unique family-oriented atmosphere is what is standing the acts represented on Theater Miscellaneous tickets apart from the rest.
