The fall Off-Broadway season is filled with award-winning actors who have gone behind the limelights to direct

The show, beginning Nov. 20, is a "modish rip-off" of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, telling the story of the Quartos: “Their fans worship them. Scotland Yard fears them.

1. It's a kick-ass guitar.
2. The guitar you will win isn't just out of the box from a store, it's the one that Billie Joe has been playing at home.

The guitar is the Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 from Gibson Memphis with a Black Cherry Burst finish.
