Normally orchestra and Grand Tier tickets to The 5th Avenue Theatre’s production of Leonard Bernstein’s classic stage musical On the Town, about a group of sailors who spend a night painting The Big Apple red, would run upwards of $80. Not today. Groupon—which offers one-day online deals for various local goods, services and activities—is offering half-off tickets to The 5th Ave show. The deal lasts until midnight tonight for select evening shows. The tickets don’t guarantee a glimpse of Gene Kelly (who starred in the movie version with Ole Blue Eyes), but you’re still sure to experience a “helluva” night. Don’t fret if you miss out on this opportunity—plenty more Bernstein events are taking place in Seattle in the coming months as part of Seattle Celebrates Bernstein, including Bernstein-themed performances by the Seattle Symphony and the Seattle Men's and Women's Choruses. Prices vary. 5th Avenue Theatre, 1308 5th Ave. groupon.com/seattle
