A ticket lottery has been announced for the final Broadway performance of “The Phantom of the Opera.” The history-making musical will shutter on April 16 after 35 years. The musical opened at the Majestic Theatre on Jan. 26, 1988.
A limited number of lottery tickets will be offered to the sold-out, invitation-only performance. The lottery is currently accepting entries now through March 31 at 12 p.m. ET. Winners will be chosen in four daily rounds, beginning April 3. These winners will be given the chance to purchase one or two rear mezzanine tickets for $99 each.
Tickets remain available for the April 14 charity performance, benefitting four New York City Arts organizations: Broadway Bridges, The American Theatre Wing’s Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative, The Prince Fellowship and The Stephen Sondheim Foundation.
“The Phantom of the Opera” is produced on Broadway by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group.
