I've talked my share of shit about the Broadway Across America touring shows that roll into town every so often, but I'm nothing but excited for this one: Next Tuesday sees the Portland premiere of August: Osage County, a show about a big dysfunctional Oklahoma family that Charles Isherwood described in the New York Times as "flat-out, no asterisks and without qualifications, the most exciting new American play Broadway has seen in years."

So happens I've got a pair of tickets to the show's opening night performance this Tuesday, Oct 20. Email me by noon tomorrow with "Oklahoma" in the subject line, and these tickets could be yours. (I'll pick at random, so save your flattery, it only embarrasses us both.)
