News   Free and Discounted Theatre Tickets Will Be Available to NYC Marathon Runners In addition to bragging rights, those who complete the upcoming New York City Marathon on Nov. 6 will be able to enjoy another benefit — free or discounted theatre tickets.

Those who finish the 26-mile race will be eligible for free or discounted tickets to several of the shows playing Dodger Stages by presenting the postcard that will be in the goody bag distributed to marathon runners. Participating shows include The Musical of Musicals — The Musical!, Naked Boys Singing!, Drumstruck and Altar Boyz.

Since the marathon is 26 miles long, a friend of each runner can purchase a second ticket to the same show for only $26.

The ticket offer expires Dec. 31, 2005, and tickets are available on a first come, first-served basis. Both The Musical of Musicals — The Musical! and Naked Boys Singing! are offering 50 free tickets and 50 discounted tickets; Drumstruck and Altar Boyz are offering 10 free seats and 10 discounted ones.

To redeem their tickets, marathoners can call (212) 947-8844 or visit www.broadwayoffers.com (use code RUN2DODGER). Postcards must be presented at the box office when picking up tickets.

The Dodger Stages box office is located at 340 West 50th Street, between Eighth and Ninth Avenues. For more information about Dodger Stages, visit www.dodgerstages.com.
