Two lotteries and rush... does this all time out?

Really feeling like seeing a show tonight, and am planning to:

 

- Enter 6 p.m. Hamilton lottery

- Grab a Finding Neverland loser voucher

- Enter 6:30 p.m. Spring Awakening lottery

 

Obviously, itinerary can (and will gladly!) end at any point when I hear my name. Two lotteries and rush... does this all time out? But I want to do the Hamilton lottery, grab a Neverland voucher (since someone said they have been stalking the Hamilton lottery with a coupon voucher you can use for that night), try Spring Awakening lottery, and if I don't hear my name at either lottery... Neverland, it is!

 

Just not sure how long Hamilton takes to get going with the #Ham4Ham, then where exactly to find the Neverland people (closer to Marquis, or the other side?), and then I should be fine making it to Spring Awakening... seem pretty do-able?

That's totally doable.  Cut through the Edison Hotel to save yourself some time.

I did this the other day - just make sure you're near on an end to the Hamilton crowd or it can take a bit to get out.

How much is Neverland with the voucher?

Someone in another thread said the coupon was the same as rush without getting up early, so I'm assuming $37, but anything around that price is fine.

Yes, the flyers they were handing out last week said $37 for the evening performance.

Oh, and you won't have any problems doing this. I did the lotteries for both Hamilton and Spring Awakening (and also Hamilton and Curious Incident - which I won!) multiple times last week.

unless you win the Hamilton lotto... they usually have all the names called within 10 minutes so more than enough time to make it over to spring! Hopefully you won't have to though :)

Exactly! Thankfully time order is also order of preference: Hamilton, Sprig Awakening, Finding Neverland... Two lotteries and rush... does this all time out?

Do they have a coupon for $37 tickets if you lose the Hamilton lottery even on a Saturday night? I may do the Hamilton lottery next Saturday night and if I don't win see Neverland. And if so, where have the seats generally been located?

I hope to not be able to tell where my seat for Finding Neverland is... but I will if it comes to that. Two lotteries and rush... does this all time out?

Thanks haterobics, lol. But don't worry even if you do end up having to see that it looks pretty good.

I'm doing the exact same thing tonight...Hamilton, then Spring, with my backup being (fingers crossed) standing room for Fun Home. That's show's short enough that I could grin and bear that. Haven't done standing room since "Broadway Bound" in the late 80's.

broadwayjim42, I did standing room for Fun Home on Saturday, and was pleasantly surprised to find it not uncomfortable or tiring at all. Actually, between the short running time and no intermission, it was pretty easy, and even nice, at times, to be able to "stretch" my legs. But hopefully you'll have luck at either Hamilton or Spring Awakening!

Someone walks from the Lunt across the street to give out Finding Neverland vouchers to the Hamilton lottery losers??? Why didn't I know this?!

 

I would like to know if they do this on Saturday evenings as well (or Sat mats or Sunday shows).

The times I've seen the FN people at Hamilton were on weeknights. They were there prior to the lottery- going up and down the line that fills up a little before they actually start taking names. I don't know what they do when it turns into the free-for-all as the half hour progresses, though.

How did it work out?

It did not go well...

 

Struck out at Hamilton. Finding Neverland was NOT passing out vouchers. Struck out at Spring Awakening. Went to FN to ask about rush, and they said there wasn't any and the cheapest ticket was $72. So then I was like, OK, who really shouldn't turn me away... so I went to Amazing Grace (as I quasi-know a cast member and told them I would attend) and they did give me a $30 ticket, fourth row mezzanine on the aisle.

 

So, I saw a show, but it was Amazing Grace, and it did not save a wretch like me.

I guess it works better during the week, not on a weekend.
