25% off tickets to National Tour of 'Falsettos'
Receive 25% off tickets in select sections and dates to the national tour of the Tony-Award winning Falsettos at the Kennedy Center from June 11-23.

“An exceptional production of a perfect musical” —The New York Times

William Finn and James Lapine’s groundbreaking, Tony Award®–winning musical returned to Broadway in an all new production from Lincoln Center Theater, and was nominated for five 2017 Tony Awards®, including Best Revival of a Musical. Don't miss Broadway's Nick Adams (La Cage aux Folles and Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Whizzer, Eden Espinosa (Wicked, Brooklyn The Musical and Rent) as Trina, and Max von Essen (An American in Paris, Tony Award® nominee; Evita and Les Misérables) as Marvin.

Falsettos revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man named Marvin along with his wife, lover, about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family ... and a beautiful reminder that love can tell a million stories. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Contains brief adult language and mature content.
Valid from April 25 – June 23

Try the limited edition Game of Thrones Dragonglass Shake at Shake Shack!
The Dragonglass Shake is made with minted white chocolate custard topped with shards of Dragonglass. In keeping with our commitment to premium ingredients and thoughtful sourcing, the Dragonglass Shake is a prime example of the Wall-to-Table movement. Custard is frozen with packed snow harvested beyond the Wall and hand-churned by members of the Night’s Watch. Final prep occurs in Winterfell, where the shake is topped with shards of Dragonglass imported from the caves of Dragonstone. Please note supplies are limited as the Wall is currently undergoing major renovations. The Dragonglass Shake will be available at Shacks nationwide (excluding stadiums, ballparks, transit centers and airports) throughout the final season while supplies last!
Valid from April 26 – May 19
