Special Giveaway: Win Tickets to See the New Alan Rickman Writing Comedy “Seminar” on Broadway

We have a very special contest going down right now on the GLA Blog. Here’s the deal. There’s a new comedy on Broadway called “Seminar” that stars none other than Alan Rickman (bad guy in Die Hard, cheating husband in Love Actually, and, oh yeah, Snape in Harry Potter) as a writing instructor. Time Out New York gave it 5 stars and said Alan Rickman is hilarious in it and basically the man, which, naturally, we already knew. We’re giving away tickets on this blog. Keep reading if you want to win a pair!

THE GIVEAWAY: This contest goes through EOD, January 9, 2012. With the help of Serino/Coyne in NYC, we are giving away four (4) free pairs of tickets to random commenters. The show itself is on an open-ended run, so winners are allowed to cash in their tickets for anytime in Jan – March 2012 — so you should be able to find a date that works for you. (Update: Winners picked on 1-10: lhinkey, Marta, gigig99 and shannon.kahle.)

HOW TO WIN: 1) Comment on this post. 2) In addition to commenting, you must share news (a link) of this contest at least once through your blog, Facebook or Twitter. If you tweet the news, just include the “Seminar” handle @SeminarOnBway in your tweet, so we can find it later to verify. If you blog or Facebook the news instead, please include your actual link within your comment below. Easy peasy! Questions about the contest? E-mail me at literaryagent@fwmedia.com

THE SHOW: “In SEMINAR, four aspiring young novelists sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Alan Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting new comedy. This is its world premiere.”

 

Thanks for entering!

    I love Alan Rickman and couldn’t think of a better opportunity to see him live but in “Seminar”. I evenhave wrote to Vogue when they featured him in the November issue. Tweeted about this giveaway @beatlesblonde

    So, I can’t think of a better reward for my writing efforts than to win tickets to this show (which of course, I would share with my favorite KC writer friends). Ok, maybe waking up to see my novel anywhere on the NY Times Best Seller list. But since that ain’t happening anytime soon… Whoops, I forgot–posted the contest link on facebook http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=593147371

    It would be so lovely to actually win something, and this is the best something I can think of. This is a play by an outstanding playwright with a wonderful cast and it would make my entire year to win!

  7. AlexRoyale

    I would love to see this! Alan Rickman is phenomenal onscreen, and seeing him on stage would be ridiculously awesome! Tweeting this, Tumblring this, and Facebooking this! :)

  8. LydiaBlyf

    I am absolutely desperate to see this! Alan Rickman is on of my favorite actors but Broadway ticket are too expensive for my student budget. Also my sister who I haven’t seen in a bout a year will be visiting from England In Feb, she’s an aspiring actress and if I could take her to this I would be the best sister ever! I really hope I get lucky, I’ll be tweeting at @LITERATI_FILES

    Writer’s Digest is having a contest to giveaway tickets to “Seminar” on Broadway!

    I love Alan Rickman! Truly, Madly, Deeply is one of my all time favorite movies and I just saw him being deliciously horrible in Nobel Son over the weekend. Combine that with a lifelong desire to see a real Broadway show and this would make me the happiest ‘Grammy’ in town! Len would love this one too!

    The thought of Alan Rickman as an instructor – I’d be terrified every time I spoke in class! This would be fabulous to see on Broadway. I’m posting it to my facebook.

  11. jcastello

    twitter is ladycastello. Rickman is a fantastic human being and the only actor I know of that really cares about not only his role, but the story of the film/play he’s working with. I really hope for this opportunity to see Rickman in person and give myself a reason to see NYC for the first time …

    Hello everybody!
    First, i’m sorry for my poor english, but i’m french…. I know it’s a good pretext. But the only one:)
    I want to see Alan Rickman, to check if he’s real, and not just a god of theater and cinema. Although i think to see Alan Rickman on Broadway is a miracle!
    To conclude, i’ll go across the ocean by swimming ( or plane… ) to see Seminar.

    Just re-commenting this so that the link is with my actual comment…

    “Will be linking this to my Facebook for sure!

    Ahhhh! My fingers are crossed!
    I’ve admired Alan Rickman’s work since his early Shakespearean days; andI was so thrilled when he signed on to portray my favorite literary character: Severus Snape!

    I would do anything to see this show!
    Thank you for the opportunity!”

    Can’t wait to see the play! Would love to win tickets to take friends!
    Shared it on Facebook -http://www.facebook.com#!/Kmworldtrvlr
    I am happy to know in not the only fan who thinks Alan Rickman is fascinating;)

  17. MamaOwl_Kirby

    I never win anything, but this is the most exciting prize I could ever imagine. I am a huge fan of Mr. Rickman and would love nothing more than to see his genius firsthand. I have never been to New York City and can not think of a better reason to go than to see The Seminar. I have been following stories about this play from the day Mr. Rickman was announced to take the lead, hoping to get tickets. However due to the economy, my hours have been cut back so drastically I cannot afford a pair of tickets. To win this prize would be the best thing to happen to me in a long time! Please pick me! I am tweeting this using my twitter account of the same name (@MamaOwl_Kirby).
