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! (Update: Winners picked on 1-10: lhinkey, Marta, gigig99 and shannon.kahle.)

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."
