WASHINGTON - For those affected by the shutdown, there are tons of freebies for federal workers -- but one entertaining offer is extending to everyone.

Tickets are half price for the new larger-than-life horse and human production of Cavalia's Odysseo. The performance is currently setting up on the plateau at National Harbor.

It's hard to tell there's a federal government shutdown in the area by watching the 80 local workers completing the world's largest touring tent. Bulldozers are busy transforming the plateau for next week's opening.

Normand Latourelle, the artistic director, founder and mastermind behind of Cavalia's Odysseo, is offering a 50 percent discount through Oct. 8 on all tickets for anytime during the run. He says ticket sales are already doing very well but that he wants to help those who were affected by the shutdown.
