The wildly popular Broadway production, The Book of Mormon, comes to The Paramount for a quick three week engagement this Tuesday. Tickets are not only selling out quickly, but also at high prices. Enter stage left: the ticket lottery system.
Broadway has been offering ticket lottery for their performances for a while now - and it's a huge hit. Entries are accepted at the Paramount Box Office starting two and a half hours before each show, when people line up to fill out a stub with their name and ticket number request (two max).
You only have thirty minutes to get your stubs filled out and submitted back to the box office, as they draw 'winners' two hours before the show. If your stub is drawn, you buy $25 tickets to the performance that night. A limited number of tickets will be drawn and available for each performance.
If you've ever been to a show in New York City, it's very much like the half-price tkts booths there...just this time they travel with the show!
