A Pair of Premium Tickets to Broadway’s Come From Away with Backstage Tour
New York Times Critics’ Pick Come From Away takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that put their lives on hold and opened their homes to this world of strangers. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

This breathtaking show written by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and directed by Tony®-nominee Christopher Ashley (Memphis), is hailed by The Washington Post as, “an exuberant antidote for what ails the American soul,” and Newsweek as, “a funny, charming and uplifting celebration that does what all the best musicals do: takes you to a place you never want to leave.” With our package, you’ll receive a pair of premium tickets to the show, and get escorted backstage following the performance by a member of the producing team, Natalie Gershtein, who also happens to be Pipeline’s very own producing director.

They also believe this direction helps create the most passionate, responsive and nurturing learning experience for their students.

Sky Ting has been hailed as “fashion’s favorite yoga instructors” by the New York Times, so it’s only appropriate that this package also comes with a $500 gift certificate to Outdoor Voices.

A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival.

Pair of Tickets to Sojourners & Her Portmanteau at New York Theatre Workshop
In a two-part theatrical event, NYTW Usual Suspect Ed Sylvanus Iskandar brings to life the singularly poetic world of playwright and NYTW Usual Suspect Mfoniso Udofia’s Sojourners and Her Portmanteau. Performed in repertory, these two chapters of Udofia’s sweeping, nine-part saga, The Ufot Cycle, chronicle the triumphs and losses of the tenacious matriarch of a Nigerian family. In Sojourners, a young, pregnant Abasiama struggles with the responsibilities of her arranged marriage as her husband becomes seduced by 1970s American culture. Intent on finishing her university studies so that she can return to Nigeria, Abasiama weighs her dreams and obligations as she attempts to move forward. Decades later, the full impact of her decision erupts when Abasiama’s family is reunited in Her Portmanteau. As Nigerian traditions clash with the realities of American life, Abasiama and her daughters must confront complex familial legacies that span time, geography, language and culture. Presented in two parts, this heartrending pairing probes into the ties that bind mothers and daughters and how we define home. Sojourners and Her Portmanteau are produced in association with The Playwrights Realm who premiered Sojourners last winter in a limited engagement world premiere production. Her Portmanteau is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
