In all honesty I don't think I'd turn down a free ticket to any Broadway/off Broadway show...I mean, hey, it's an opportunity to see it, and even if it's bad, I can leave content with the fact that I didn't pay for it. re: What show (that you haven't yet seen) would you turn down a free ticket.

I'd probably see anything once... but probably Ring of Fire
Am I cut out to spend my time this way?

I wouldn't turn down a free ticket unless it was something that offended me.

I'd probably see anything for free. And if it's bad, it'll just make the very likely long ride home fun.

I would NEVER pay to see some of these shows, but if they were free then HELL YEAH I'd see them.

I would never turn down anything, free is such a beautiful word to a college student with no money. Besides, I am one of those people that don't think I will like something and usually end up loving it.
Wait...would you be paying for my bus ticket too :)?
Arghh! Grammar pet peeve #1: your vs you're. "Your" is a possessive pronoun. "You're" is the contraction of "you are." <<

Oddly enough, my aunt says that she wouldn't go see RENT (again) if she was paid.
However, she has seen it before.

She liked the movie better.

Rent. As a matter of principle, I will not see a concert or show where the performers use those ridiculous boom mikes that make them look like air traffic controllers or the kids at Mcdonald's taking your orders at the drive-thru window.

Next, would be "Wicked". There's something about the song "Popular" that just really irks me. Neurotic? Clearly. But I do wonder what "Man in Chair" would think about flying monkeys.

Most shows I see are on comp tickets, and while there always are stinkers (ie LESTAT, IN MY LIFE), and mediocre shows (ie THE COLOR PURPLE), I think seeing as much as you can is a good thing, especially if you are not paying anything for it.

You can learn just as much and sometimes even more from a "bad" production than a "good" one.

I completely agree, Thesbijean...

I can't believe anyone would turn down a free ticket to anything... how can you KNOW you'll hate something just from hearing the title or the idea or a piece of the score? Even if you do still completely hate it (which is unlikely) you'd be able to clarify why your tastes don't coincide with such a piece and how this reflects on your theatregoing...

Even shows you think you wouldn't like could have ONE outstanding performance, a few great melodies, memorable lyrics... or you could see an important show in the career of a performer, director, writer... or you could find yourself in a theater that has housed other shows you've liked... or you could see a performance by some unknown who will in a few years be a star...

I've learned more from "bad" shows than I have from "good" shows, and flops are often just as, if not more interesting than hits...

My grandmother HATED Subways are for Sleeping, and often tells me the story of how her boss made her take his tickets, so she was forced to go... and you know what, she STILL hated it, which is fine, but the point is that at all family gatherings, she makes sure to announce that she saw the best chorus performance of all time... because she kept pointing out who she thought was the most talented person on stage, an 18- year old chorus boy named Michael Bennett. (i adore this story... and my grandma, obviously... she's awesome)

anyway, to each his own, but i definitely can't believe a true theatre- goer would turn down free tickets- EVERYTHING expands one's wealth of knowledge somehow
[title of show] on Broadway. it's time. believe.
