WICKED's Live Lottery Will Return This Summer

WICKED's Live Lottery Will Return This Summer

There will be 26 tickets available, and each ticket is $30 which includes the $2 facility fee.

Good news! The Broadway blockbuster Wicked has announced that the Live Lottery has returned to the Gershwin Theatre for Summer 2022. Broadway's only in-person lottery opens two and a half hours before each performance begins in the Gershwin Theatre breezeway. Winners will be announced two hours before the performance. There will be 26 tickets available, and each ticket is $30 which includes the $2 facility fee. Payment must be in cash, limit to two tickets per person. An end date for the lottery has not yet been set.

The Wicked cast currently includes Talia Suskauer as Elphaba, Brittney Johnson as Glinda, Cleavant Derricks as The Wizard, Sharon Sachs as Madame Morrible, James D. Gish as Fiyero, Jordan Barrow as Boq, Clifton Davis as Doctor Dillamond, and Mikayla Renfrow as Nessarose.

Currently the 5th longest-running show in Broadway history, Wicked is the winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Since opening in 2003, Wicked has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese. Wicked has been seen by over 60 million people worldwide and has amassed over $5 billion in global sales.

In addition to the Broadway production, Wicked in North America has enjoyed unprecedented record-breaking sit-down engagements in Chicago, where it ran for nearly four years; Los Angeles, where it ran for two years; and San Francisco, where it ran for nearly two years, as well as two North American Tours.

The Broadway sensation Wicked looks at what happened in the Land of Oz...but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships...until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked."

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade," and by Time Magazine as "a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage." NBC Nightly News calls the hit musical "the most successful Broadway show ever."

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento. Wicked is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
