Feeling lucky? Win tickets day of to a performance of 'Wicked' at the Benedum Center
A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held for "Wicked," which is returning Jan. 24 to Feb. 11 to Benedum Center in Pittsburgh.
Two-and-one-half hours prior to each performance, people can come to the Theater Square Box Office, 655 Penn Ave., to have their names placed in a lottery drum. Thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for the $25 seats, cash only. There is a limit of two tickets per person. Participants must have valid photo identification.
The lottery is not occurring for the 2 p.m. Feb. 3 autism-friendly performance.
The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, "Wicked" tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda, the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery, and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other's lives for good made "Wicked" one of the world's most popular musicals.
