Recession-Proof Entertainment

Snag free theater tickets for a cheap night on the town.

When it comes to cutting costs, culture is usually the first to go. For weeks you’ve been eating cereal for dinner, drinking box-o-wine and watching bad TV to save a few bucks. Now even the busted economy is no excuse for spending another intellect-crushing night trying to like the new ‘90210.’

Free Night of Theater gets you out of the house for zero dollars. Offered annually in more than 120 cities, the program aims to create more theater lovers and fill more velvety seats in the nation’s not-for-profit playhouses.

The biggest blockbusters may be sold out, but free means a perfect opportunity to try something new. We’re particularly intrigued by "Made Me Nuclear, the Operetta." Will your review be as glowing as the actors may be? At this price, you can afford to take a chance. Many shows run through early November. Find free shows.
