Center Stage 'GO Pass' for 18-34-year-olds on sale Tuesday

OK, you lucky Gen-X-ers, or Y-ers or whatever, Center Stage is repeating its popular bargain introduced last year to help lower the median age of theatergoers.

The "GO Pass," available to those between the ages of 18 and 34, includes a ticket to all seven productions of Center Stage's 50th anniversary season.

The price of the pass is ...

$48 (just about the cost of a single seat paid by all those ancient folks who will be sitting nearby).

The pass goes on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the box office, by phone (410-332-0033), or online.

More than 700 passes were sold last season, when the age range was 21 to 34. Passes to the 2012-13 season will be on sale through Sept. 30, or until the allotment runs out.

The GO Pass works like this: Reserve a set to any show, well in advance or on the spur of the moment just before curtain time (based on availability). Pass holders can also buy up to two extra tickets at $20 for each performance.

The golden anniversary season at Center Stage includes:

Arthur Miller's "An Enemy of the People" (adapted from Ibsen);

"The Completely Fictional — Utterly True — Final Strange Tale of Edgar Allan Poe," by Stephen Thorne;

William Inge's classic "Bus Stop";

"The Mountaintop," a play by Katori Hall about the final night of Rev. Martin Luther King;

the premiere of "Mud Blue Sky," by Marisa Wegrzyn;

the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Clybourne Park" by Bruce Norris;

and the premiere of "Beneatha's Place" by company artistic director Kwame Kwei-Armah.

About Tim Smith
Born and raised in Washington, D.C., I couldn't help but develop a keen interest in politics, but music, theater and visual art also proved great attractions. Music became my main focus after high school. I thought about being a cocktail pianist, but I hated taking requests, so I studied music history instead, earning a B.A. in that field from Eisenhower College (Seneca Falls, N.Y.) and an M.A. from Occidental College (Los Angeles). I then landed in journalism. After freelancing for the Washington Post and others, I was classical music critic for the Sun-Sentinel in South Florida, where I also contributed to NPR. I've written for the New York Times, BBC Music Magazine and other publications, and I'm a longtime contributor to Opera News. My book, The NPR Curious Listener's Guide to Classical Music (Perigee, 2002), can be found on the most discerning remainder racks.

I joined the Baltimore Sun as classical music critic in 2000 and, in 2009, also became theater critic, giving me the opportunity to annoy a whole new audience. In 2010, my original Clef Notes blog expanded to encompass a theatrical component -- how could I resist calling it Drama Queens? I hope you'll find both sides of this blog coin worth exploring and reacting to; your own comments are always welcome and valued (well, most of them, at least).

Think of this as your open-all-hours, cyber green room, where there's always a performer or performance to discuss, some news to digest, or maybe just a little good gossip to share.
