Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center Announces 'Wicked' Lottery for $25 Seats

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Tennessee Performing Arts Center announces details for day-of-performance lotteries for a limited number of seats to Wicked March 28-April 22 at TPAC’s Jackson Hall.

Two-and-one-half hours prior to each performance, people entering the lottery at the TPAC Box Office will have their names placed in a lottery drum. Thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only. This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person. No lottery entries will be accepted past the 30-minute submission period. Lottery participants must have a valid photo ID when submitting their entry form and, if chosen, when purchasing tickets.

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 has made Wicked one of the world’s most popular musicals. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman.

The production is directed by Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento. Wicked is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt, and David Stone. Declared “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly and “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety, Wicked is the recipient of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards.
