So you can't get tickets to Wicked on the night you want to go? You're not alone. The show, which is docked at the Orpheum through July 12, is a near sell out. But don't despair, there's still hope. The Orpheum is holding daily day-of-performance lotteries for a limited number of $25-dollar orchestra seats.
So how do you win? Every day, 2½ hours prior to curtain, show up to the Orpheum Theatre's box office and have your names placed in a lottery drum. Winners will be drawn and announced 2-hours before showtime. You must be present to win and winners should be prepared to pay for their tickets in cash.
