Win Tickets to See John Malkovich in “Seduction and Despair”

The show is Saturday, May 3, 2008, 8pm and Sunday and May 4, 2008, 8pm Barnum Hall, Santa Monica.

The show is described as:

Actor John Malkovich and Musica Angelica Baroque Orchestra present “Seduction and Despair,” an original multi-media concert presentation directed by and starring the celebrated Academy Award-nominee.

This modern-day melodrama with Baroque music is an extraordinary collaboration between the ultra-contemporary actor and Musica Angelica, whose work is rooted in the 17th century.

Music by Baroque composers – among them Boccherini, Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn and Mozart — serves as the emotional background of the true story based on the life of Jack Unterweger, whose grisly killing streak in the early 1990s took place partly in Los Angeles. Unterweger, a convicted Austrian murderer and acclaimed imprisoned poet, author and journalist, was pardoned and released from jail at the urging of Austria’s literary elite, only to kill again.

We have a couple of pairs of tickets. Here’s the deal – we just got these new comments. And well, you guys never use them, so it makes us look bad to the New York people and we just hate as Angelenos for them to get yet another reason to be smug. Blah blah – bigger hit count – better spellers on staff – offices with plumbing – whatever.

So here’s how we’re going to do this one. You leave a comment, you’ll have to register (we know lame). Then email us with your screen name and you’ll win tickets. Make sure to tell us the date that you would like to go. First five people win tickets!

Look, our blogger conference is in less than a month – so we’re clearly getting desperate to one up them…at least once.
