Broadway in Chicago Rush Tickets and Lotteries.
What are Rush Tickets?
Broadway in Chicago (BIC) is a theatrical production company that presents shows at five theaters in Chicago (see list below). BIC will sometimes offer Rush tickets which are $25 Day-of-Show tickets available for sale at the theater box office only. The $25 is all in – no additional fees. Some rush tickets are available to the general public and some are only available to student/teacher/senior/military. Not all shows offer Rush tickets. Deals vary by show.
How Broadway in Chicago Rush Tickets work
- Rush tickets are only available on the day of the performance, when the box office opens at the theater where the show is located.
- Limit of 2 tickets per valid ID.
- You can email Broadway in Chicago firstname.lastname@example.org and they may tell you how many rush tix are available. My advice is to arrive super early and bring something to read/portable chair.
Sometimes Broadway in Chicago has ticket lotteries for $25 tickets for certain shows. The day before the show the lottery opens at 9:00AM. At 5:00PM they will send you an email indicating whether you won. You can only win a maximum of two $25 tickets. If you win you have one hour to purchase the tickets. On the morning I enter I set my alarm for 5:00PM so I can check my email. When I won the Leguizamo Latin History for Moron’s tickets I was able to purchase the tickets through my phone no problem. The fee is $3 per ticket. The day of the show you can pick up your tickets thirty minutes before the show. I showed up an hour and fifteen minutes early and they had the tickets. You must show a valid ID and it must match the name of the lottery winner.
$87 ticket for $25
As an example I was able to score an $87 ticket located third row center orchestra at the Cadillac Palace Theater for $25. I waited in line with six other people for 45 minutes. Generally the box office opens at 10AM so I arrived at 9:15AM. Cha-ching!
