Has Annie announced a rush or lottery policy?

This often gets announced just before previews begin.

I did it last night and I'm sure it'll get busier, but yesterday there can't have been more than 20-25 people there and they give out a lot of seats. I think a lot of people don't know performances are happening yet or that they even have a lottery...if you want to hit it before it gets crazy I'd say go soon, because I'm sure it'll pick up once they officially announce the policy (which they haven't yet).

I did get in, my friend won and then my name was called a few people later but I only needed 2 tickets so I didn't take them. We were in the first row close to the end of the row.

Considering that there has been zero official word on the website regarding lotto, do you think that I would have a good chance for tonight?

Interesting- so they seemed willing to sell the other tix at the end? I have work until 6 and wouldn't be able to get there until about 5 or 10 min after 6... wonder if they would sell me a ticket if I showed up a tiny bit later and some were left...

I did get called for the lotto this evening. However, it wasn't like Friday night where it seemed that there were more tickets available than people trying to get them. One thing I did notice was that there was a high number of people who entered, but when it came time to draw, they were't around. Now, I know that it's not uncommon for someone to get called at a lotto to find out that they up and left. But, this time around the number of times that happened was oddly high.

I think that if there wasn't such a high number of people to be called who weren't there, I might not have gotten a ticket. Also, despite there being a final counting of winners before tickets went on sale, someone left the line and decided to not buy their ticket(s.) I was one of the final three, and there were four tickets left. So, they sold it to him at lotto price since he only needed one anyways.

I think that it picked up more from last night, and it will continue to do so. The big thing right now is that the lotto info isn't up on the show's website yet. I think that once it is, people will start crowding around for this one.

Won the lottery tonight. There were probably about 50 people there, and about 40 people got tickets. The first two rows are pretty great seats, although you miss a bit of the choreography in Hard-Knock Life (because so much of it happens on the floor).

Tonight everyone that wanted a ticket got one- literally worked out that there were the exact number of tickets as people wanting.
