Hawaii Mom Blog: Broadway Musical Wicked by Lottery

Broadway Musical Wicked by Lottery

This way to see Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre.

Even though we were in New York for just 48 hours, we just had to make time to see a Broadway play.  Since our last night's itinerary wasn't set in stone, we decided to try our luck with Broadway lottery tickets which could get us greatly discounted tickets.  We first tried for Anastasia's digital lottery that opens up at midnight of the day of performance.  We were promptly notified at 2pm that we didn't win.  We decided to show up at Wicked's in-person lottery held 2 ½ hours prior to show time.  Just 30 minutes later, names were drawn for 26 orchestra seats at $30.00 each.  I literally jumped for joy when my name was called!  Even if you don't win, stick around because they might still be able to offer you discounted tickets.  At our lottery, they were offering the crowd $69 tickets which is great as tickets start at $99 for the show.

Here is the view of the stage from our orchestra seats!  Both Gem and I had seen the show in Hawaii, but I am glad we decided to see it again.  It had been so long that I had forgotten a lot of the plot!  The show was amazing and it was such an awesome experience to see Wicked on Broadway!  

Amazing seats from the in-person lottery.
