I won the lottery! No, I am not changing my number to hide from friends. In fact I am actually thinking about giving it out!
The lottery I am referring to got me in the front row at the hottest broadway show – the one with a two year waiting list. Because I enjoy sharing VALUE, here is how you can win too!
I recently learned that there are Broadway shows that offer front row tickets via lottery. It is fairly easy to win. Just go to the box office two hours before curtain, let them know that you want to enter the lottery for the next performance. Leave your name and the number of seats you would like to purchase if you are the winning entry. Then wait for the drawing.
Be sure to have cash and credit card ready to buy if you win. Some theatres will not accept credit cards for lottery payments.
So, in the interest of full disclosure, it turns out that a dear friend of mine did this for the HOTTEST ticket in town and then gifted the seat to me.
I have always wanted to be on Broadway. I have always wanted to win big. Last night I did both. I was in the front row, eye contact with the cast, seated above the orchestra and living the dream.
Yet, I feel as if the real prize was perhaps not winning the lottery seat. It’s the gift I’ve had all along – a good friend looking out for me. That’s priceless.
This post is in response to Marie Roker (@raisinggreatmen) who asked the following question today:
