Alley Theatre x Blue Willow Bookshop

We love local. When we're not at the shop, you can probably find us shopping local boutiques, visiting local bakeries, or supporting local arts organizations. That's why we partnered with the wonderful, Tony Award-winning Alley Theatre to offer discounted tickets to their new production, Cleo.

World Premiere of Cleo, presented by Alley Theatre
April 6—29

Set during the filming of the disastrous 1963 movie Cleopatra, Cleo is the story of the scandalous romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Their relationship brought condemnation from the Vatican and the US Congress, and it opened the age of paparazzi and tabloid celebrity, ensuring that the names Burton and Taylor would always be associated with the greatest sex scandal in ancient history. Acclaimed director and actor Bob Balaban directs this new play by the Texas-based, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright.

Tickets are available online. For a a special 20% discount, use promo code BLUEWILLOW.
