(CAMBRIDGE) -The American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.) will offer $25 tickets during a One Day Sale on Friday, January 9, for early performances of each production of the current season. Tickets can be purchased in person from 9AM to 6PM at the Box Office at 64 Brattle Street, Harvard Square, Cambridge; as well as on line at www.amrep.org, or by phone at 617-547-8300.

«Given the challenging economic climate, we want to give the opportunity for price conscious patrons to be able to attend the A.R.T. at a lower price. We don want them to miss our exciting upcoming offerings – a world premiere, two classic masterpieces, and a no-holds-barred comedy,» commented Ruth Davidson, A.R.T.’s Director of Marketing and Communications.

The remaining productions of the 08-09 Season are Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull, directed by János Szász; Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, directed by Marcus Stern; the world premiere of Trojan Barbie by Christine Evans, directed by Carmel O’Reilly; and David Mamet’s Romance, directed by Scott Zigler.

Written in 1896, Anton Chekhov’s tragicomedy of life and art astonished the old century as it heralded the birth of modern drama. Dreams born and shattered, loves won and lost – The Seagull paints a rich and tumultuous portrait of the human heart. Directed by János Szász, it runs January 10 through February 1 on the Loeb Stage. Discounted tickets will be available for the performances from January 10-15.

Spare, enigmatic, and absurdly funny, Endgame is one of the greatest dramas of the modern age. Beckett’s language is pared down to a distilled beauty, and his archetypal characters achieve a poetic grace despite their bizarre condition. Under the direction of Marcus Stern and featuring members of the A.R.T. Acting Company, it will run February 14 through March 15 on the Loeb Stage. Discounted tickets will be available for the performances from February 14-19.

Lotte Jones, a doll repair expert, vacations in Troy, where she finds more of a change of scene than she’d bargained for. Part homage to Euripides’ Trojan Women, Trojan Barbie is an epic war story with a most unlikely heroine, who always looks on the bright side even as past and present collide about her. Directed by Carmel O’Reilly, it runs March 28 through April 19 at Zero Arrow Theatre. Discounted tickets will be available for the performances from March 28-April 2.

It’s hay fever season, and in a courthouse a judge is popping antihistamines like candy. David Mamet as you’ve never seen him before. A courtroom farce that takes no prisoners in its quest for total political incorrectness, Romance is being directed by Mamet’s longtime collaborator, Scott Zigler. Performances run May 9 through May 31 on the Loeb Stage. Discounted tickets will be available for the performances from May 9-14.
