JAKES DIY OF THE YEAR: 

HEATHERS CUSTOM TEE

One cannot just attend the closing night of Heathers the Musical without dressing up. Complete with my blue blazer and grey shorts, I added a custom T to add my own touch!

STEPS:

  1. Buy Shirt. This one was from Kohls for $8.99
  2. Buy Fabric Spray Paint.
  3. Create a stencil in word. This font was size 100 and the text was “Color Of Autumn”
  4. Print stencil on heavy duty paper. Use exacto knife to cut out black letters.
  5. Lay on shirt, and COVER ENTIRE SHIRT WITH PAPER (The spray will go everywhere and ruin the shirt and trust me this happened it was awful)
  6. Let sit for 10 mins.
  7. Peel up stencil.
  8. Let sit for 2 hours.
  9. Rock the fuck out at Heathers The Musical Closing NIGHT!

Day 9: Favorite non-Veronica/JD Actor

How do you afford to see all this theater?

I get this question a lot. Part of it is just luck. I work in theater and I am lucky to have talented friends working all over the city, too. So when there’s a discount or a comp to be had, I’m on it. Beyond that, though, the truth is I can afford it because I rarely pay more than $50 for a ticket. And here’s how I manage it:

1. I get one membership each season to wherever looks to have the best season. Last year it was playwrightshorizons, this year it’s publictheaterny. It’s tax-deductible and I can get cheaper tickets.

2. I go to TKTS or use TodayTix** for discounted Broadway and off-Broadway tickets. I’d also recommend a TDF membership if you are eligible (full-time student or teacher, recent grad, union member, etc) so you can get the TKTS booth deals and a LOT more for very little. Goldstar is a similar ticket site that’s free to join but I’ve never used them.

**If you sign up with my code, AAJDA, you get $20 off your first ticket order. So do that.

3. I take advantage of all the discounts available from individual theaters, including many for the 30-and-under crowd. Most of these are free to sign up:

LincTix for Lincoln Center

HipTix for Roundabout

29&Up at 59e59theatersblog

CheapTix at New York Theater Workshop

HotTix, Front Row Sundays, and Live for Five Lotto at playwrightshorizons

Back 20 at Atlantic Theater

99-Cent Sundays at Soho Rep

30 Under 30 at MCC

Greenseats at Irish Rep

30 Under 30 at Manhattan Theater Club

4. Broadway for Broke People is a great resource for all the lotto/standby/SRO/etc policies for everything currently on Broadway. I don’t do this very often because I’m usually working during the day but if you have the time, go for it. Especially if the weather is miserable. I’ve seen some great shows for cheap because it was snowing or raining and nobody wanted to be out in the lotto or standby line.

Those are all my secrets. Have at. Enjoy some cheap(er) theater!
