Want to go to the theater this weekend? We're giving away tickets to two events.

First up: The Music of the Blues Brothers Live at the Gaslight Music Hall (13005 N. Oracle Road)
We're giving away tickets to a 3 p.m. showing, though there is also a show at 7 p.m. 

Next: Rise of the Sheik at the Gaslight Theater (7010 E. Broadway Blvd.)
These tickets are good for any show through June 5. 

From TW's review of The Rise of the Sheik:
This is no hoity-toity off-Broadway angst fest where you view the stage through opera glasses with your pinky extended. It's more like a very well managed free-for-all, with original scripts that are usually take-offs on a movie or other familiar tale. Here you'll find the good guys and the bad guys duking it out, all with tongues planted firmly in cheeks. The audience boos and hisses and cheers and throws popcorn, which comes free on every table. There are so many corny jokes that the audience's groans almost drown out a three-piece live band. The band wins out, though, providing a dimension of entertainment that would otherwise leave the actors and their thin plotlines and silly jokes exposed. Instead, they work together to please crowds, alongside the kitchen's well loved pizza and more.
Enter to win a pair of tickets to either show! We'll be calling winners midday on Friday, May 13.
