Special Offer for Streetsblog Readers: Free Tickets to “Bikeman”

bikemanThanks to a friend of the blog, we have 10 pairs of tickets to the next week of shows for “Bikeman: A 9/11 Play” to give away to Streetsblog readers on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Bikeman is the first-person account of Tom Flynn, a CBS News producer who followed his journalistic instincts on September 11, 2001, by venturing from his home in Greenwich village toward the Twin Towers on his bike. The production is an adaptation of Flynn’s epic poem about that morning, which he recently discussed over at bikenyc.org.

The show is currently in previews at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, and there are eight shows between now and next Tuesday that our readers can get free tickets to.

If you’re interested, contact Becky Dole at bikemanhouseseats@gmail.com and say you’re a Streetsblog reader.
