Beginning today (Tuesday, December 3), the producers of the hit musical will be making 25 rear balcony tickets available for $25 at every performance via lottery, similar to the system in use for Rent at the Nederlander Theatre.

The lotteries will take place in front of the Neil Simon Theatre (250 West 52nd Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue), with sign-up beginning at 5pm for all evening performances, at 11am for Wednesday and Saturday matinees, and at 12 noon for Sunday matinees.

Each person may enter only one name in each lottery, and the individual who name is entered must be present to purchase tickets. Tickets are limited to two per person and payable by cash only. Photo ID is required.
