Is anyone going to search or did anyone find (after 12:00pm est) the free tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child?

I got an email with the following info:

**available today from 12:00pm EST** people across the globe will get to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (both Part One & Part Two) for FREE * Only one ticket per person, so select 1 for seat quantity. * Search across any performance date. * If you find a seat priced at $0, add it to your cart and complete your order.

GOOD LUCK ALL

May the odds be ever in your favor. oops "What am I doing here? I'm in the wrong story!"

Saw this too. I'll likely not bother since I'm out of Felix Felicis. Also, I've seen it twice, so don't really need to see it again, especially if I can't bring someone.

I got one for April! I thought they were all gone, but I clicked on "Back to Hogwarts offer" in the ticket pricing window of a date I had open.

I found one but at the same time as another buyer! They got it into their cart first!

What's nuts is that I found the majority of them, but didn't snag ANY of them...I checked Halloween thinking it would be too obvious, but lo didn't snag one...second check was February 6/7 as I'm the nerd who know's it's James' birthday since it's also mine and LO AGAIN, found them but **** out of luck..

I got Balcony row C so not the best seat but I really can't complain when it is FREE. I'm giving it to a friend who hasn't seen it yet though, as I've seen it three times.

What are the techniques for finding them? If there are any left of course

Had the same happen to me. Tried to grab a few different ones and they were all snagged. Gave up on it as I've also seen the show 3 times in NY alone. Hopefully people enjoy it! :)

Luck. Honestly. See my response above. I just checked dates I thought might be obvious, and lucked out finding them but not getting one. They're all gone by this point.

So how is everyone finding them? Do you have to scan through every seat or can you see $0 in the menu? Glad people are finding them!

I saw that too, and it was a clue to that, that month had some. You had to click on actual dates to check. It would have shown Back to Hogwarts offer. And update, that they are indeed all gone. Site confirms it.

You had to click through every date and you would see them if they were available. There were usual loading problems, captchas, etc. that made it hard to do.

How do you know they're gone if they just show up on random dates that you have to click through to find?

You would basically have to select every date on the calendar and the free tickets would be the first option. As mentioned, they are certainly gone by now.

My seat didn't show up in the list. I had to put the price bar to $0 and look for it.

The $0.00 tickets show up first on the list of available seats. I went and double checked another date I knew had free tickets and only normally priced tickets were remaining, so the free tickets had all been claimed.
