Original adaptation about the life, love and (spoiler alert¬Â¦) death of two punk rock icons. Over just two years Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen rode a drug fueled roller coaster through the London and New York Punk scenes as Sid joined the Sex Pistols just as they reached the height of popularity only to spiral down into the very anarchy propagated in their music.

Under the management of impresario Malcom McLaren the band provoked controversies that captivated Britain while defining the style and attitude of an era. This production, captures the music, the style and the tragedy of a classic/cautionary love story that defined one of the Rock & Roll's most infamous acts.

Warning: This play contains profanity, nudity, drug usage, violence and extreme sexual situations.

Adapted by Zeda Samuel and Martin Chavira. Written by Zeda Samuel, based on the screenplay by Alex Cox and Abbe Wool. Directed by Martin Chavira.

    I deserve some tix because not only was I a total fan back in my younger years, but I’m a teacher now and I spent the day setting up my classroom listening to Pretty Vacant and Anarchy in the UK while everyone else was listening to Kenny G. Help a sister out!

    This would be fascinating to see. I read the book Sid & Nancy written by Nancy Spungen’s mom back in 1984(!) when I was very pregnant with my first son. I had never read about such a violent and destructive “love” relationship before…it was so very strange, but these kids were real people and the story did not romanticize the awfulness of their reality. It made me not feel so bad that I was carrying the child of someone I would soon leave, because I would escape my own unhealthy relationship, while bringing into the world a beautiful and healthy child. We would both soon have a fresh start.

    Reading Sid & Nancy got me in the habit of appreciating real personal “horror stories” that made me feel better about my own life, which has had assorted extreme difficulties and calamities. There will always be those who have it worse, and self pity will vanish upon the return of that realization, which this play will foster.

    Sid and Nancy were a big influence on me as I was growing up. A sad story about two very talented people.

    I would love to win the tickets for Saturday night. It’s a great story of a lifestyle that most people never personally witness, are grateful that they don’t, but are intrigued by it nonetheless.

    OK, so this is like my wife’s favorite movie. What a cool surprise if I won tickets to this dramatization. She might even like again.

    I want to go see this because I want to see the friggin play, eh?

    I would be honored to be picked to win a pair of tickets because I need to take my daughter to see this. I want to share the performance with her now that she’s old enough and survived an abusive relationship of her own. I think we both have more to learn about loving ourselves and each other, before a healthy relationship with a spouse. This performance would further open our dialog with each other, about what is attractive and healthy, what is acceptable treatment, and much more. Thank you for the opportunity.
