BROADWAY AND OFF-BROADWAY SHOW

Here's one way to try to get a great seat in the orchestra section of a Broadway theatre, and pay very little for it. We know of 2 shows where it is happening right now, and if any of our viewers know of any other theatres doing it, we would appreciate your letting us know about it.

About two hours before the show time for Hair and In the Heights, their respective theatres hold a lottery, in which all you have to do is write your name on a small index card, indcate your zip code and circle whether you want one or two tickets. You drop the card in a bucket, and about 1/2 hour later, an employee of the theatre will draw out the cards of the winners. There are a total of 25 tickets awarded for seats in the orchestra of the theatre for which you have to pay either $25 in cash for Hair or $26.50 in cash for In the Heights if you win..

Sure its a gamble, and the odds are against you, but we do know some people who were winners in these lotteries. Your odds of winning are better during the week, as opposed to a Friday night or for a weekend performance.

The dates are June 20-21, July 18-19 and August 15-16..

Last year, national parks attracted more than 275 million visits, generating about $10.6 billion for local economies, and supporting more than 213,000 jobs. For the Park Service, the offer will mean a loss of an estimated half-million dollars a day.
