Play the Broadway lotteries or line up for rush tickets
Who among us hasn’t wasted a few hours of their life entering the online Hamilton lottery day in, day out? Luckily for you, some show lotteries are a bit easier to win, and you can score tickets for as little as $10. Check the Broadway Direct website and the TodayTix app to find out how to enter. If you’ve got time, you can also line up for same-day rush tickets at the theater box office. Just be prepared to camp out for popular shows like Dear Evan Hansen and Book of Mormon, and know that you may have to settle for standing room only tickets, if any are available at all.
