Wicked Lottery Drawing in Chicago

Broadway In Chicago announced two opportunities to purchase $25 tickets for WICKED at Broadway In Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre, playing a limited engagement, September 28 - December 4, 2022.

Two lotteries will be available for patrons to enter:

The day prior to all performances of WICKED, a digital lottery will be held through Broadway Direct for a limited number of $25 seats. Entries are accepted and drawn the day prior to the performance. If selected, winners will have 60 minutes to pay for their tickets online. Tickets will be available for pick up the day of the performance at the James M. Nederlander Theatre.

An in-person lottery will take place in the James M. Nederlander Theatre lobby on the day of the performance for a limited number of $25 FRONT ROW seats for all performances of WICKED. Entry forms are available at the Nederlander Theatre box office only, and names are drawn two hours prior to the performance in the lobby. Must be present to win, and tickets are cash only.

Both lotteries require photo ID. One or two tickets may be requested. You may only win the opportunity to purchase $25 tickets once per performance. Seats are at the discretion of the box office and cannot be transferred to other people or performances.

The Broadway sensation WICKED looks at what happened in the Land of Oz... but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships... until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked."

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade," and by Time Magazine as "a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage." NBC Nightly News calls the hit musical "the most successful Broadway show ever."

Now the 5th longest-running show in Broadway history, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Since opening in 2003, WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese. WICKED has been seen by over 60 million people worldwide and has amassed over $5 billion in global sales.
