Warm your heart with Tuesdays with Morrie

morrie

See Tuesdays with Morrie at the Skokie Theater — Goldstar has tickets starting as low as free today only (you pay service fees).

Based on journalist Mitch Albom’s real-life friendship with his favorite college professor, Tuesdays With Morrie chronicles the lessons Albom learns during visits while his mentor and friend is dying from Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. The two delve into the themes of life, love, wealth, aging, dependence, peace and death. It’s through these weekly visits that Albom realizes just how much he still has to learn about values and priorities. Albom’s 1997 book by the same name has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide to date, was adapted into a successful film in 1999, and premiered as an off-Broadway play, written by Albom himself, in 2001.

Over at Goldstar they’ve added new dates for discount tickets to The Sound Of Music, performed by the Lyric Opera at the Civic Opera House in Chicago.

Few Broadway musicals are more beloved than The Sound of Music, and now you can see it live in a production by Lyric Opera of Chicago, with Hollywood star Billy Zane stepping into the role of Captain von Trapp. It’s the story of Maria, an aspiring nun who takes a job as governess to the widowed Captain von Trapp’s seven children. As she gradually earns the heart of the family — and their father — the von Trapps are threatened by the rise of the Nazis, and must figure out how to escape Austria. “My Favorite Things,” “Edelweiss,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “The Lonely Goatherd” and the soaring title song are just a few of the unforgettable melodies in this classic work of musical theater. The cast includes opera stars Christine Brewer and Elizabeth Futral, Jenn Gambatese of Broadway’s Wicked and All Shook Up, and Edward Hibbert of Frasier.

Don’t cry for me Goldstar — We got your cheap tickets right here

evita

Who doesn’t want to see the Tony-award-winning Evita on the cheap? Goldstar has tickets as low as free — you just pay service fees.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s music and Tim Rice’s lyrics bring the compelling true story of Eva Perón to vivid life through stunning showstoppers like “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall” and “High Flying Adored.” Evita follows the path of the small-town peasant girl as she uses her considerable smarts and charisma to rise from the slums of Argentina to President Juan Perón’s side as first lady, becoming one of South America’s most powerful women. Though she was much beloved by her people as the voice of the poor, her inevitable downfall came through her unwavering ambition and a devastating illness, making her one of history’s most tragic and dramatic figures.
