If I buy tickets, then lotto and win, would I be able to return the tickets I bought??

gstrus2 - um, no. You can't return tickets except very, very rare occasions. You could lotto then buy tickets afterwards. You could even try to lotto and then attempt to sell your tickets that you had previously bought at face value or less (but then you would take a hit). Sometimes if I have really wanted to sit in lotto seats, I've won lotto and then sold my previous seats for lotto price - effectively not losing anything, the other person gets a deal, and I get the seats I want. But for Annie, I'd say that the lotto seats are obstructed as the stage is VERY high and it's better to sit halfway back in the orchestra all the way on the outside than that close.

Everybody who entered the lotto tonight won...and there were even leftover seats that were sold to folks standing around. Really a good deal, the show is a lot of fun! And I think it'll be a crowd-pleaser and a much more crowded lottery in the next few months, especially around the holidays...

Does anyone know if they will be having a lottery on opening night? I saw the show this weekend and had a great time. Want to go back and I think that'd be a cool performance to experience.

Lottery wasn't too crowded, but yes, there were a number of people who did not get tickets.
Well worth it for $40, but the stage is high at the Palace and the show deck is about 1 foot higher.. But yes, be prepared for some decidedly obstructed viewing. You get the idea of what you are missing, but you WILL miss some - really cleverly conceived moments on the floor during "Hard Knock-life" and one of Sandy's big moments... You also have a limited view of the big moment where Annie has to call Sandy for the first time and the first half of "Tomorrow" is completely out of view with her seated on the floor. Beyond that, it's a fine view.

How long has lotto been mentioned on their website? I only noticed it today.

Thanks for the tips, all!

This will be my first winter living in the city. Do lotteries get considerably easier as it gets colder?

The lottos actually get very busy around Thanksgiving and Christmas time, but then in January and February there's a bit of a lull!

How many tickets do they give out? I went last night and didn't win. They only gave out around 12 tickets.

For $49...there are EXCELLENT mezzanine seats available with the code "BBOX" on ticketmaster....if you get them at the box office, no service fees!

For those with friends/family looking for something to do the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving...great seats available. Always a good night to see a show.

And $49 beats the $69 or so you'd pay at TKTS that day! And you'd avoid waiting in line in the cold for essentially the same seat selection.

Has anyone tried the lotto recently, particularly on the weekends?

I lottoed the matinee a week ago (Saturday 11/17) and all but 2 people got tickets. I technically didn't win, but there was a single ticket left after all the winners were called, so I ended up with the last one since the other couple both wanted to stay together.

do you know how many people won? I heard originally it was 24, then it was reduced to 12....not sure if there is any truth to that or not.

Pretty sure it was the entire front row and nothing else, so around 18 seats?

I think they changed the front row thing. My two friends and I tried it today and all got tickets but we ended up with the last row. I don't think it really matters though, since one lady and her daughter ended up taking two spare seats in the back (they originally had bought front row seats) because the stage is so high up that it's impossible to see a lot of the action on stage.

From what I understand, Annie is switching from Lotto to Rush- which I personally don't like!

I find this odd considering every show since Legally Blonde has had lotto, plus the lotto had been picking up since Jane Lynch joined.

Something tells me people are about to be heading that way for the lottery and will be pleased to find out they don't even have to leave it up to chance. Or by some miracle they won't have rush tickets left and everyone will be pissed.
