Central Square Theater is putting on a gorgeous, sophisticated, yet family-friendly production of "Arabian Nights" for the holidays, and you can win two free tickets! Here's how ...
Once upon a time, a beautiful and brilliant woman name Sharazad won the heart of a savage king through her storytelling genius.
Once upon a time, some psychologists at Harvard found that women who wear makeup appear more competent than those who don't.
Once upon a time, Globe writer Beth Teitell wrote a funny story about the Harvard study, in which she suggested that "the cosmetics makers might attract new customers with lipstick colors like 'Office Manager of the Year' and 'World's Number One Room Parent.'"
In the improvisational spirit of Sharazad, now is your turn to come up with the best achievement-oriented names for beauty products! (Like "Color Me Tenured" lipstick ... or better yet, the sexy "TenuRED.")
The author of the cleverest and funniest name for "Competence Cosmetics" will win two tickets to Arabian Nights, playing today through December 31. The winner will be announced this Friday at noon.
Let the contest begin!
AND THE WINNER IS: Elekktra for "Break the Gloss Ceiling." Thanks to everyone who participated! Elekktra, email me and I'll put you in touch with the theater so you can claim your tickets to "Arabian Nights."
