I really couldn't believe my eyes when I read it in one of my favorite blogs, Well, by Tara Parker-Pope. Cynthia Nixon, star of Sex and the City, was headlining in a new Off-Broadway comedy called Distracted, a story about a mother raising a child with ADD.
The story was written by a playwright and mother, Lisa Loomer, who noticed that more and more children were being diagnosed with ADD and other disorders after she enrolled her child in school. The play is more about the mother (Cynthia Nixon) and her journey to cope and learn more about ADD and is less about the child. I already bought tickets! I know we are trying to save money but my birthday is coming up and we had this coupon. How can I miss a play about someone who playing "my role," so to speak. Thank you Emily for this coupon!!!!!! I'm so sorry to all of you who live far away and can't see it.
You can get tickets by going to www.roundabouttheater.org or calling 212-719-1300 and my friend sent me a coupon code (DIPBOL2) which takes about 40% off the ticket price. I think the show will stop playing in May.
