The new Broadway production of John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men has announced a student rush policy for its limited engagement, which begins March 19 at the Longacre Theatre. A limited number of $35 student tickets will be available when the box office opens for performances on that day. Patrons with valid student identification are limited to one ticket per person.
Starring James Franco, Chris O'Dowd, and Leighton Meester, and directed by Tony winner Anna D. Shapiro, the classic American story follows unlikely friends George (Franco) and Lennie (O'Dowd), who drift from job to job across California, never letting go of their dreams of owning an acre of land of their very own. The play premiered in 1937, the same year that the book was published. The cast also features Ron Cephas Jones, Alex Morf, Joel Marsh Garland, James McMenamin, Jim Ortlieb, Jim Parrack, Michael Dempsey, Kevin Jackson, Erica Lutz, and Stephen Payne.
