6:30 PM – Pre-Show Happy Hour at Studio Theatre
8:00 PM – Vietgone in Studio's transformed Stage 4
After-Party following the performance (Location TBD)

Celebrate spring with Studio’s young professionals group, Friends With Benefits, at our favorite party of the season: the Fling. We're kicking off the night with a pre-show happy hour at Studio and a performance of Vietgone written by Qui Nguyen, a Marvel Studios screenwriter. Then get ready to assemble, Avengers: we're partying all night long with the Vietgone cast. Don’t miss this!


All Friends With Benefits members receive two free tickets (or more, depending on your membership level) to the Fling, guaranteeing admission to the pre-show cocktail hour at Studio, performance of Vietgone, and post-show party. Claim your tickets by emailing scooke@studiotheatre.org or by clicking BUY TICKETS.

Non-members, we’ve got you covered: Join us at the pre and post-show events—and score all the booze, light hors d’oeuvres, and insider access—for $20. (Make sure to purchase your Vietgone tickets, too!)


Join Friends With Benefits—we’ll keep the drama onstage. All FWB members get BOGO tickets to Studio productions, as well as two tickets to the Fling and invitations to special events and happy hours all year long. Because friends don't let friends go to parties alone—or miss out on great ones. Not to mention, you get to decide how you pay for your membership: in monthly installments, or the full amount up front.

Looking for a little more? First Base memberships start at $10 a month. Looking for more? Check out our range of membership levels, tailored for even more access to Studio. To join at any level, simply select "Friends With Benefits" as your gift designation on Studio's Donate Now page. We'll email you to confirm your tickets to the Fling.

In this high-octane comedy, Marvel Studios screenwriter Qui Nguyen recreates (and kinda makes up) his parents’ reluctant courtship: Fresh from Saigon, they meet in an Arkansas refugee relocation camp in 1975. With pop culture, a live band, and plenty of funk-rock-punk-n-roll, Vietgone follows these new Americans through a bewildering land.
