No Loitering: Avenue Q Offers Lottery for $21.25 Tickets

News   No Loitering: Avenue Q Offers Lottery for $21.25 Tickets "Camping out all day or overnight on the sidewalk is no longer permitted or recommended as everyone wishing to enter the lottery will have an equal opportunity at the proper time." So states the new official Avenue Q rush seat policy.

Avid Avenue Q fans can take their chances on same-day performances by entering the ticket lottery. As per the policy, potential $21.25 ticket buyers will be asked to print their name and desired number of tickets on a provided card — available starting at 5:30 PM for 8 PM shows; 11:30 AM for 2 PM matinees; and 5 PM for 7 PM shows. (One card per person. Limit of two tickets per person.) The cards will then be placed in a container and drawn daily — at 6 PM for 8 PM shows; noon for matinees; and 5:30 PM for 7 PM shows. Following the drawing, eligible ticket buyers will line up at the box office window to show proper identification and purchase their tickets. After that, no further $21.25 tickets will be available for that performance.

The Broadway run of the Off-Broadway hit Avenue Q begins July 11 at the Golden Theatre and opens July 31.

Broadway performances will play at 8 PM Monday-Saturday and at 2 PM Wednesday and Saturday. (The schedule changes Sept. 1.) For tickets to Avenue Q, call (212) 239-6200 or click here.
