Broadway's Honeymoon in Vegas has announced an unprecedented ticket policy for educators. For $32 per ticket, teachers can receive a maximum of four tickets by presenting valid school identification or union membership card at the Nederlander Theatre box office through January 14.

Additionally, production star Tony Danza, himself a teacher, and fellow cast members will participate in special talkbacks to educators attending the show during the following performances: Tuesday, December 16; Wednesday evening, December 17; Friday, December 19; Monday, December 22; and Tuesday, December 23.

Honeymoon in Vegas also stars Rob McClure and Brynn O'Malley with David Josefsberg, Nancy Opel, and Matthew Saldivar. Newly announced cast members include Matt Allen, Tracee Beazer, Grady McLeod Bowman, Barry Busby, Leslie Donna Flesner, Gaelen Gilliland, Albert Guerzon, Raymond J. Lee, George Merrick, Jessica Naimy, Zachary Prince, Catherine Ricafort, Jonalyn Saxer, Brendon Stimson, Erica Sweany, Cary Tedder, and Katie Webber.

Gary Griffin directs the production, with choreography by Denis Jones. The creative team includes Anna Louizos (scenic design); Brian C.

Inspired by the film comedy of the same title (which featured a screenplay by Bergman), the musical stars McClure as the commitment-phobic Jack Singer, who travels to Sin City to elope with his longtime girlfriend Betsy (O'Malley) and escape the curse of his long-dead mother. Complications ensue with the arrival of Tommy Korman (Danza), a widowed gambler who takes a shine to Betsy on account of her resemblance to his late wife.
