'The Servant of Two Masters' aims for comedy jazz
Audience members who loath the distraction of folks who use their cell phones during movies and performances need not worry. The phone-friendly section will be in a Twitter-only balcony, well-quarantined from the regular, Android- and iPhone-free seats.
Patrons interested in tweet-seat tickets can reserve a spot by calling the Guthrie Box Office at 612.377.2224 and mentioning the deal. Twitter-friendly shows are during Thursday performances of The Servant of Two Masters, and cost $15.
This isn't the only show to encourage online interaction during performances; the Wits lecture/variety show series also welcome active tweeting, and sometimes even folds it into certain aspects of the interview portions of the event.
