Special offer on a show tonight!

I run Jobsite Theater down at the Straz Center, and we have a special offer on tickets for tonight's performance of Dead Man's Cell Phone. The show is getting great reviews:

We begin our second weekend of performances of the hit play Dead Man's Cell Phone tonight (6/10, 8p) in the Shimberg Playhouse. We hope that if you haven't joined us yet that you can attend this weekend, and that if you have come that you can recommend us to friends!

The six-person cast is getting sensational feedback from audiences and critics alike:

" an innovative play ... tender yet exasperated ... the cast [is] hugely talented, subtle and charming ..." - The Tampa Tribune

"A fine production ... original, unpredictable, poignantly lyrical ... expect humor, whimsical plot developments, sudden insights and an all-too-justifiable fixation on death. There are several coups-de-the√Ętre ... the Jobsite team delivers fully with every performance" - Creative Loafing

"The six-person cast, directed by David M. Jenkins, is phenomenal, delivering some of the most uniformly excellent acting you're likely to see on a Tampa stage this year." - St. Pete Times

There is a special discount code for tonight's show (6/10, 8p) - use promo code JEAN when you buy and get your tickets for half-off, just $12.25 each.

Hope you can take advantage!
