It was announced today that federal employees on furlough due to the partial government shutdown will be given free admission to Beautiful – The Carole King Musical for select Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday evening performances.
“The shutdown has affected so many government employees in a really negativeway,” said producers Paul Blake and Mike Bosner. “If we can offer those affected by this shutdown a moment of escape and joy, then we feel it is important to do so and is truly the least we can do.”
To claim a ticket, eligible federal employees must present valid government identification at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre’s box office (124 West 43rd Street) on the day of the desired performance. Tickets will only be available in-person at the Sondheim box office. This offer is non-transferrable, and only is valid for the duration of the government shutdown.
