It’s easy to forget that some of the best professional theater in the metro Denver area, isn’t actually in downtown Denver. The Arvada Center produces professional, Equity live productions on both its Main Stage and in the Black Box Theatre. Live theater can be costly, but the Arvada Center offers discounts for most of its musicals and plays. Read on for details about the latest deal.
The Center’s closes out its 2022-2023 season with Damn Yankees, the hit Broadway musical which originally starred Gwen Verdon (she reprised the role in the film) as the Devil’s temptress, Lola, of the now-famous “Whatever Lola wants…Lola gets.”.
In the show, Joe Boyd is middle-aged, out of shape, and worst of all — a Washington Senators fan willing to sell his soul for the Senators to beat the New York Yankees and win the pennant.
One Faustian bargain with the devil later, Joe’s the team’s new star player. When he starts to miss his wife, though, and questions the deal, the Devil sends Lola (Gwen Verdon) in to change his mind.
Devilishly funny and full of classic show tunes, such as “You Gotta Have Heart,” Damn Yankees shows that, like Lola, you can get whatever you want – but how far would you go to get it?
Damn Yankees runs from April 7 to May 7, 2023. But the sooner you buy tickets, the more choices you will have on seating.
Here’s the deal:
Tickets start at $53, but you can get $15 off tickets when you use the promo code LOLA and purchase online or through the Box Office (720-898-7200).
The fine print: The discount code is good for regularly-priced tickets in Tier II and Tier III sections only and does not include previews.
MHOTC Tip: The 500-seat Arvada Center Main Stage does NOT have a bad seat in the house. It is steeply raked so you can almost always see over the person in front of you. Bottom line: Tier II and Tier III sections provide fine viewing.
How to redeem:
Click on this link and either select a performance date or hit the “Tickets” button on the right.
Enter the code LOLA into the Promo Code box in the top right and hit the green “submit” button to apply the code.
One other thing we love about the Arvada Center: Parking is FREE, and there is an opportunity to view the changing art gallery exhibitions before the show or during intermission.
