Hi all! I was able to see Moulin Rouge! after winning the lottery for Wednesday's matinee. The seats were $29.00 each with a $5.00 service charge per ticket, so very reasonable. We were given Orchestra Row K, the last seats at the right side of the row. They were partial view, which was a real shame, since this show's visuals are it's biggest selling point. I would advise anyone who is going to see this show to get to the theatre a little early, because you are allowed to take pictures in front of the stage. The set design and lighting design are absolutely gorgeous, and definitely make this show quite the Broadway spectacle. Here's a link to a video of the set I posted on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/p/B0UhhovnxI3/As for the show itself, I really enjoyed it. The score is tapestry of pop hits, so those of you who need original music might not care for that part. Even taking that into account, I recommend keeping an open mind about it. The set design, choreography, and performances more than make up for the lack of an original score.

Just want to know for when I win...gotta stay positive!"I'd say from where we sat, we couldn't see about a third of the stage. I still really enjoyed myself, so it was a great deal, don't get me wrong. If you can, just enter every single day. Now will be the easiest time to win. Once word gets around it'll probably get significantly harder.

Has anyone else won? Am curious about the seating. Wherever it is, I won't complain when the seats are $29, but I can't help but be curious!
I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how many seats are assigned for the lottery?
I won for today's matinee, and I got right orchestra, seats 24 and 26. Almost a third of the stage is obstructed, but given the price, I can't really complain.
Can report that my lottery tickets were Mezz A, all the way to the right. Behind the elephant, if you will. Highly obstructed view, but you can't beat the price!
Won last Thursday for the matinee for 1 ticket. Got Right Mezzanine, C24. Given that they were marked as partial, I wasn't expecting the best time, but I will admit, I was more than satisfied with my seats. Sure, the elephant trunk did block the occasional actor or two, but I felt like I saw everything that was important. I'd imagine the people in Row A had it worse though, as the trunk was directly in front of them. Actually, my grievances were more due to the people in the lower rows, who were constantly leaning forward. But that will always be a problem in the Mezz (or at least, it has with me), and I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, that they really can't see without moving. On the other hand, the woman sitting directly next to me in C22 told me that her seat wasn't marked as partial view and that she paid $200 for it. She was very upset that. I believe her husband complained during Act 1 and they were moved during intermission, so I got to move over for Act 2. It was a better view, but not by much; I can understand how someone who paid $200 would be upset about the trunk in their way.
I was lucky to finally win the lottery! I was wondering if it makes any difference what time you pick up your tickets, regarding best seating choices ( since i know they're obstructed view) ? Two hours before, or closer to show time? Thank you!
Aside from the Can Can seats, every other lotto seat is obstructed and way to the side. Crappy seats, but at least you are there I guess.
Those seats sure look exciting, but did you get any neck pain from all the head turning?
Thanks, doll. Much appreciated!
For those who won Can Can seats -- did you find out in the lottery e-mail? Or did you not find out until you got your tickets and were seated?
I found out in the lottery email. There are special rules if you are sitting in Can Can seats so they would have to alert you ahead of time, good luck!

Thank you!"I'm also curious about this. For those who won, were the tickets already in an envelope when you picked them up?
