Tomorrow I'm going into the city with 3 other people and we want to try and do lotto for a show. We narrowed it down to Wicked and Young Frankenstein. Do you think we have a chance at Wicked?..I know Young Frankenstein is easy to win...but if we have a chance..

one might be easier because I've heard YF has less people..but if we have a chance at Wicked with 4 people entering names then I would rather do Wicked

If you win Wicked you probably have a good chance at winning the lottery as well.

The Lotttery at "Herb & Florence's Tick Tock Inn Dinner Theater and clock museum" is almost absurdly easy to win. BUT Tickets are regularly $35 and if you get them through the lotto they are $38. And the show is "Last Five Years" and Herb & Flo play the leads. (Herb is 86. Florence doens't give her age but she was in the chorus of Bloomer Girl.)
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

honestly, I've had 4 people for lottery in wicked before and none of us won, it sucks and then you're stuck there.

if you guys absolutely want the chance to see a show either do YF or pay full for wicked.

Wicked is ALWAYS crowded. Especially on the weekends.

The lotto guys/girls are not going to risk losing their job to help out some person that they don't know. In theory they shouldn't do it for anyone but you never know with some people.

I was with a group once that was...I wanna say 12 people entering their names? just helping a friend out, only needed two tix...and none of us won. The Wicked lotto's really hardcore sometimes.

I answered this question in a thread 2 days ago.

Wicked is the hardest lottery on Broadway. I've seen 200-300 people there. Sundays are not going to be empty. "Light" will probably be 100.

Young Frankenstein is probably the easiest on Broadway. No guarantee, but you'll have a much better chance there. No guarantees, just a better chance.

There's no contest if you want to maximize your chances.
