Win Free Tickets to “A Time to Kill” by John Grisham on Broadway — Free NYC Giveaway

Categories: Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog, Getting Published, What's New.

400x400We have a very special new contest going down right now on the GLA Blog. Here’s the deal. On Broadway right now, there is an awesome play adapted from John Grisham’s novel, A Time to Kill. It features a huge cast, including some amazing veteran actors you’ve seen in a bunch of movies — such as Tom Skerritt of Alien, Top Gun and MASH. It was adapted to the stage by Tony® Award-winning playwright Rupert Holmes, and Grisham himself says the result is amazing. We’re giving away tickets on this blog. Keep reading if you want to win a pair!

THE GIVEAWAY: This contest goes for 2 weeks through EOD, Oct. 16, 2013. The play opens on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013, at the John Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street). The production is excited to give away two (2) free pairs of tickets to random commenters. The show itself is a limited run, and ends at the beginning of March 2014. (UPDATE: Barrm and Nadre 11 won.)

HOW TO WIN: 1) Comment on this post for one chance to win. 2) If you want two chances to win instead of one, here’s what to do: In addition to commenting, you must share news (a link) of this contest at least once through your blog, Facebook or Twitter.

THE SHOW: “A Time to Kill, the popular courtroom drama, tells the emotionally charged, now-iconic story of a young, idealistic lawyer, Jake Brigance, defending a black man, Carl Lee Hailey, for taking the law into his own hands following an unspeakable crime committed against his young daughter. Their small Mississippi town is thrown into upheaval, and Jake finds himself arguing against the formidable district attorney, Rufus Buckley, and under attack from both sides of a racially divided city. This drama is a thrilling courtroom battle where the true nature of what is right and what is moral are called into question.”

This new Broadway play holds the distinction of being the first-ever John Grisham property to be adapted for the stage. Ethan McSweeny will direct. Sebastian Arcelus, Chike Johnson, Patrick Page, Tony Award® winner Tonya Pinkins, Emmy Award® winner Tom Skerritt, Fred Dalton Thompson, John Douglas Thompson, and Ashley Williams plus Dashiell Eaves, J.R. Horne, John Procaccino, Tijuana Ricks, and Lee Sellars will star. (If you do not win but want to see the play, here is the info for you: Tickets are available now at The John Golden Box Office (252 West 45th Street), online at Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.)

    Combines my love for books with my love for theatre. And what a terrific book to adapt into a play! Also tweeted about the contest: @TiffCat31

  10. LeeYoungblood says:

    Adaptations offer fascinating insight into the nuances of interpretation and perception.
    I have read this book and seen the movie; I have thoughts, opinions and interpretations of what I have consumed. Adaptations, are a window into the layered interpretations of the community of people who put on the production. Sharing that experience with others lends insight into yet another collection of perspectives.
    I love adaptations of all kinds for all they communicate.
