The Newmark Theatre is a wonderful venue for dance and the box seats make you feel like the whole performance is being given just for you. There’s a reason they used to be reserved exclusively for titled nobility. They’re THAT good.
Score your own VIP experience and win a pair of box seats for the April 19th Opening Night performance of Chromatic Quartet by finding the answers to these three questions about the show, hidden somewhere in the posts about Chromatic Quartet on our blog.
Then, email your guesses to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll select a winner at random from the pool of correct answers received by Wednesday, April 18th at noon. You must answer all three questions correctly to qualify. As a bonus, everyone who answers correctly will be emailed a secret code for 1/2 price tickets to the opening night performance. Happy hunting and good luck!
