OKAY EVERYONE -- HERE IT IS!!!!
What else could we mean but: The official Les Miserables Sweepstakes to win tickets for the show's 10th Anniversary performance, March 12, at Broadway's Imperial Theatre.
Producer Cameron Mackintosh is sponsoring this contest to give away 300 pairs of tickets to fans from NY, CT and NJ only. To win, a Les Miz fan must answer 6 (six) questions about the musical itself. The fan must then MAIL the answers in, postmarked on or before Feb. 7. On Feb. 14, a random drawing will be held, and the first 300 people chosen -- who correctly answer all six questions -- will win a pair of tickets to the 10th Anniversary Celebration.
(Apart from these special 600 tickets, other free tickets will be given away throughout the U.S. via local radio promotions.)
Got your pens & pencils out? Here are the questions: 1. WHO IS THE OBJECT OF EPONINE'S UNREQUITED LOVE?
2. WHAT IS THE NAME OF FANTINE'S DAUGHTER?
3. WHO WAS THE ORIGINAL JEAN VALJEAN IN LONDON AND ON BROADWAY?
4. WHAT WAS JEAN VALJEAN'S PRISONER NUMBER?
5. COMPLETE THE PHRASE FROM THE SHOW: "TO LOVE ANOTHER PERSON IS TO SEE..."
6. WHAT POPULAR 1963-1967 TV SERIES AND SUBSEQUENT 1993 HOLLYWOOD MOVIE WITH THE SAME NAME FOLLOWED A SIMILAR THEME AS HUGO'S LES MISERABLES?
Those are the questions, here are the rules:
