Director Baz Luhrmann’s movies come to life in “For the Record,” a live cabaret-type show that’s a fusion of film, music and theater. Ace Hotel in Palm Springs will host this production next week and offers a special hotel rate for those who stay overnight.
The deal: The For the Record package takes 15% off room prices and includes two tickets to the show and a $25 spa credit. Use the promo code “Record” when making a reservation online or by phone.
Actress Ginifer King of “Gypsy” and seven others perform songs from “Romeo and Juliet,” “Strictly Ballroom” and “Moulin Rouge.” Upcoming performances are to feature the films of Quentin Tarantino on June 13 and 14, the Coen brothers on Sept. 12 and 13, and John Hughes on Dec. 12 and 13.
When: The offer is good Wednesday and Thursday night.
Tested: I found availability for a room with two double beds for the discounted rate of $177 (instead of $209) plus tax and fees. The room comes with two tickets to the show ($20 each) plus the spa credit.
