The Minutes Lottery#1
Posted: 2/28/20 at 1:09pm

So, this morning at 8:45, I entered the lottery for tomorrow's (2/29/20) matinee performance of The Minutes.  Literally about a half hour later, I was notified that I had won ($35 each) a pair of tickets!  I was pretty happy and shocked in getting notified so quickly, considering on the page where you enter the lottery, it states that the entry period closes at 3:00 pm and winners will be notified after that.  I've won a few lotteries before, but never have I been notified that I've won before the actual lottery entry period ends.  I have no idea where my seats are.  I will post that location after the show tomorrow.  Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Thanks for pointing that out!  I did not see the statement regarding the two drawings!!  Guess I need to pay more attention as to what I’m doing/reading, LOL!!  Enjoy the show!!

My cousin and I both won (only one of us claimed the tickets) for tomorrow as well! Evening show. We entered this morning around 7:30am and were notified at 9:03am. Claimed them by 9:12am. Anyone know where the seats will be? I also got a confirmation from Telecharge at 4:30pm saying my tickets have been purchased, which I thought was strange.

As an update to where our lottery seats were, our seats were located in the Left Mezzanine, Row G (last row), seats 3 & 5.  Full view of stage.  We enjoyed the show. Well worth the $35!!

I won the lottery for the matinee yesterday for a single ticket, and got Balcony Center B 112. Was a perfect seat until the dude in front of me leaned forward onto the railing -_- great lottery seat though!

Did anyone NOT win the lottery? It seems that most did and, for some reason, got seats in row G mezz on the sides (that's what I had along with some other posters).

Where exactly on the webpage can you do this?  When I logon to Telecharge, I see a Past Order tab and it just lists my past orders, with no place to enter an order #.  Am I looking in the wrong place?  Thanks!

I just googled Telecharge Order Status and clicked on the first link (https://www.telecharge.com/orderstatus.aspx)

Then you enter your email and the order number and it shows your seat. Great tip.

I got Balcony B107 -- dead center balcony second row. I don't usually like to sit that far/high up but surprisingly good view. Another short person sat in front of me, and she never learned forward, so it worked out great.

The show is currently playing to scores of empty seats each night, so I imagine if someone indicates interest in paying for a ticket, they're giving them the opportunity to do that.

I won the lottery for tonight! I'm trying to decide if I should see it tonight or wait until the day I actually have tickets to see the show (a few weeks). Thoughts?
